Powderfinger Adds Extra Farewell Tour Dates
Australian rockers POWDERFINGER have announced a string of extra dates on their final tour Down Under, following a surge in demand for tickets.
The band announced last month (Apr10) that they are set to part ways, revealing the Sunsets tour in their native country later this year (10) will be their last.
But after tickets to dates in the country's major cities sold out in a matter of minutes, the group agreed to add "one final lap" to its tour.
Manager Paul Piticco says, "We started to get emails and calls from fans of the band asking for further dates as they'd missed out on tickets.
"We convened a quick meeting last weekend and decided to add one final lap of capital city shows that would hopefully meet the band's fans' needs."
New gigs have been added in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Cairns, with tickets going on sale on 17 May (10).
