The War on Drugs with special guests Spoon plus Indigo Sparke

Presented by Live Nation in partnership with double j, The War On Drugs return to Sydney for the first time since 2018 with special guests Spoon, plus Indigo Sparke in support of I Don’t Live Here anymore, praised by GW as “the band’s clearest, most vibrant, and upbeat”.

Led by Adam Granduciel, the GRAMMY-Award winning band has steadily emerged as one of this century’s greatest rock and roll synthesis, removing the gaps between the underground and the mainstream, between the obtuse and the anthemic, making records that wrestle and fractured past into unified and engrossing present.

Joining The War On Drugs will be one of rock’s most acclaimed acts, Spoon. Last here in 2017, Spoon will tour Australia for the first time since the release of their Grammy nominated tenth album ‘ Lucifer On The Sofa’. Opening for the show will be Australian singer songwriter Indigo Sparke.
