The Hi-Fi - Brisbane, QLD
ON SALE 9AM TUESDAY 14 AUGUST. Supported by Marco Fusinato. Key member of critically acclaimed art rock band Sonic Youth, Thurston Moore will tour Australia this October performing tracks from his latest record Demolished Thoughts and his solo back catalogue.
Regarded as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Thurston Moore formed the highly influential Sonic Youth with Lee Ranaldo and Kim Gordon in 1981. The seminal New York based band went on to release sixteen studio albums, including groundbreaking records such as Daydream Nation and Goo, which brought them to the attention of the critical elite.
Turning his attention to his solo career, Thurston spent much of the last year touring his 2011 album Demolished Thoughts. The intensely personal record was produced by longtime friend Beck Hansen, and the result is an intimate, brooding and beautiful work of art.
In addition to his previously announced Melbourne Festival performance, Australian fans will have the opportunity to witness the legendary songwriter in this special setting in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.
