Simple Plan Australian tour

Official Press Release:



with special guests The Getaway Plan and Short Stack


The Frontier
Touring Company is thrilled to announce Simple Plan’s first Australian tour
in over three years. Simple Plan will perform for fans in Perth,
Newcastle, Brisbane,
Sydney and Melbourne.
Special guests at all shows will be The Getaway Plan and Short Stack.

Simple Plan’s
fierce and unapologetic sound has enraptured a loyal fan base worldwide, with
Australian fans some of the most vocal. Simple Plan slammed their way into the
music industry via the multi-platinum selling No
Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls
which spawned an array of hit
singles (‘I’d Do Anything’, ‘Perfect’ and
‘I’m Just A Kid’), shooting the band to prominence around the

They followed up
their success with the hyperactive Still Not
Getting Any…
The release of singles ‘Welcome To My
Life’, ‘Shut Up’ and ‘Untitled’ propelled the
band to a new level, as they sold millions of copies across the globe. After
supporting Green Day across Australia
and selling out their own subsequent tour Down Under, Simple Plan cemented
themselves as one of Australia’s
most welcomed bands. 

Simple Plan will
return to Australia
in support of their most defining album to date (Simple Plan – out now through Warner). The band
challenged themselves to break the boundaries, and they did just that.
Featuring ‘When I’m Gone’ and their latest single ‘Your
Love Is A Lie’, the album continues to entice fans with a fresh new
sound, showcasing the band’s unbridled energy.
Contagious hook-filled melodies and intriguing lyrics proved that experimenting
with their winning formula was well worth the risk.

Off the back of
their sold out ‘Where The City Meets The Sea’ tour, The Getaway
Plan are returning to the stage to deliver what promises to be a stellar
performance. The Melbourne-based foursome’s
cross pollination of genres has positioned them as one of the fastest growing
acts in the country. The hugely successful single ‘Where
The City Meets The Sea’ spearheaded The Getaway Plan into
household-name status, which the band topped off with countless tours alongside
My Chemical Romance, Kisschasy and The Used. Performing tracks from their ARIA
top 20 album Other Voices, Other Rooms,
you can expect to be wowed by The Getaway Plan.

If you
haven’t yet heard of Short Stack, it is definitely time that we brought
you up to speed. With over half a million plays on My
Space and more than a quarter of a million on You Tube, the eccentric
threesome are fast emerging as one of Australia’s hottest new bands.
Their self-filmed Short Stack T.V has received 250,000
hits, driving the video for “Drop Dead Gorgeous” to be
featured on the rotation lists of MTV, Channel V and Video Hits. Forming a
global fan base with their intoxicating blend of indie rock, pop and punk,
Short Stack have already validated their success by  supporting the
likes of Good Charlotte, The Click 5, McFly and hellogoodbye around the

The history
of Simple Plan in Australia
is straightforward: they sell out shows. With the reinforcements of The Getaway
Plan and Short Stack, these shows will tread the same path.
