UK dance legends Leftfield will play club shows in Melbourne and Sydney later this month, to replace previously announced winery dates near those cities which have been cancelled due to circumstances beyond the artist’s control. Leftfield’s already announced Perth and New Zealand shows will proceed as scheduled.
“We had various options on what to do when we found out about the cancellation of the two events, but as far as I was concerned we just had to come to Australia,” Leftfield’s Neil Barnes says. “I didn’t want to let down any Leftfield fans. Now that we are going to be in the cities, we just want to pack these rooms out and come together with our fans whom we haven’t seen for five years.”
Leftfield will be touring Australia for the first time since 2011, in celebration of their acclaimed third album Alternative Light Source, the follow-up to the Mercury Prize-nominated Leftism (1995) and Rhythm and Stealth (1999).
