WINTERSUN Australian Tour - Brisbane venue change

WINTERSUN AUSTRALIAN TOUR
BRISBANE VENUE CHANGE

Due to the recent announcement that the Max Watt's Brisbane venue will close it's doors in late October, the scheduled Wintersun show for November 4th has been moved to an alternative venue in THE BRIGHTSIDE.
All ticket purchases to date, will remain valid for the show.

The official Max Watt's statement is as follows:
Max Watt's has announced their decision to close the Brisbane venue following the Dillinger gig on October 22nd. Regretfully Max Watt's were unable to reach ongoing terms with the landlord making it unfeasible to continue to invest in the venue.
Booker, Jesse Barbera, has worked closely with promoters and agents of forward bookings and will continue to support all bookings and holds into venues with appropriate capacities without any need to change dates.
Oztix will advise ticket holders in this smooth process of change. Max Watt's will ensure that any other ticketing agencies provide the same service to their customers
Although this has been a very difficult decision, Max Watt's has acted to strengthen the integrity and sound operations of the Melbourne and Sydney venues. Brisbane is a smaller market with aggressive competition and higher costs. Max Watt’s is redirecting focus to invest in the success of iconic Melbourne and progressive Sydney Max Watt’s venues. This decision will enhance rather than risk the security of Melbourne and Sydney.

Wintersun with Orpheus Omega and Claim The Throne performing at:
Nov 2nd - Melbourne, Max Watt's
Nov 3rd - Sydney, Max Watt's
Nov 4th - Brisbane, The Brightside
Nov 6th - Wellington, Valhalla - *Wintersun only

WINTERSUN AUSTRALIAN & NZ TOUR NOVEMBER 2017

SOUNDWORKS DIRECT presents

WINTERSUN

ORPHEUS OMEGA

CLAIM THE THRONE

AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND TOUR NOVEMBER 2017

The wait is over! The symphonic, majestic, melodic and epic sounds of WINTERSUN finally reach Australia!!
Founded back in 2004 by front man Jari Mäenpää, Finnish epic metallers WINTERSUN released their outstanding, highly-acclaimed debut self titled album in the same year. With technicality, speed, precision and high melodic virtuosity, the band instantly made their mark worldwide. Fast forward to 2017 and WINTERSUN return with their 3rd studio album entitled 'The Forest Seasons', their most varied opus to date and cements their status as leaders and luminaries of modern melodic metal.
With this announcement of their first Australian tour, as expected, a massive air of excitement shall arise.
An early ticket purchase is a must!!!

ORPHEUS OMEGA
, one of Melbourne's prime stock, have evolved over the years into a truly unique entity. Displaying aggressive and melodic guitar work, intricate and powerful drumming, chaotic keyboard work and a varied array of vocal stylings, Orpheus Omega have developed themselves as one of melodic death metal's most promising newcomers.

Perth's CLAIM THE THRONE rip apart folk metal with a merciless assault, delivering an extreme take on melodies that fans of pagan and melodeath alike have been raging for. This October Claim The Throne deliver their epic fourth full-length album 'ON DESOLATE PLAINS' with passion and ferocity – an epic slab of heavy folk-influenced melodic death metal that sees the band at the peak of their 10 year raid.
