Perth sensation Birds of Tokyo is set to rock Wanneroo Showgrounds as the headline act for this year’s City of Wanneroo Presents Concert.
Having recently won a fourth APRA award for Best Rock Work, alongside multiple ARIA gongs and a suite of platinum plaques, Birds of Tokyo is one of Australia’s top contemporary rock bands.
Dark, dystopian, heavy synth-rock sounds blended seamlessly to create a strong setlist of signature anthems is what fans can expect when Birds of Tokyo takes to the stage on 4 November. The band will get crowds rocking out to tunes from latest album Brace, as well as smash hits Lanterns and I’d Go with You Anywhere.
Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts encourages the community to come along and enjoy this free event, featuring extraordinary live music from one of Perth’s most well-known exports.
“Each year this concert is a wonderful event, and this year is no exception. Families can indulge in a range of delicious offerings from Perth’s best mobile food trucks or pack a picnic and enjoy quality entertainment under the stars,” Mayor Roberts said.
“Birds of Tokyo is a highly acclaimed band that has seen huge national success - no doubt tickets to the show will be snapped up early, so make sure you register before you miss out.”
According to the band, Brace was created to be played live, with opening lines of the first track inviting listeners to ‘come take a seat, enjoy the show’.
“The setlist (for the show) is pretty varied. Songs right from the start of our career up to the latest stuff. I love the fact that our crowds seem to dig the variety in the show,” said Birds of Tokyo keyboardist Glenn Sarangapany.
The complete support line-up for Wanneroo Presents will be announced later this month. Make sure you like the City’s Facebook page to keep up to date with event announcements including food vendors, support acts and ticketing reminders.
Tickets are FREE but essential and will be available exclusively to City of Wanneroo residents from 9am Monday 2 October. Any remaining tickets will open to the general public at 9am Monday 16 October.
