Glass Animals have announced they are returning to Australian shores next year, kicking off their visit with a date at Perth’s HBF Stadium on Thursday, July 14, 2022.
Despite topping the 2020 countdown of triple j’s Hottest 100 with Heat Waves, Glass Animals haven’t had the opportunity to tour Dreamland, the album the single is lifted from. The stadium shows, also going down in Sydney and Melbourne, are a big step-up from the venues Glass Animals played on their last visit to our shores in 2019.
Originally released in August last year as COVID-19 tightened its grip on the world, Dreamland saw Glass Animals reach a new level of popularity and critical acclaim. The group have followed on from the success of the album with the release of popular new single I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance).
Heat Waves sat atop the Australian charts for six weeks straight last year. The single has spent 41 weeks in the ARIA Singles Top 10, putting it on par with Tones And I’s mega-hit Dance Monkey for holding the record for most weeks in the Top 10 in ARIA history.
