I remember from mid 2007 to mid 2008 Australia had a whole heap of bands and artists coming to Australia as part of their world (and in some cases just Australian Tours). Looking now, it seems as if we're getting a second wave of tours heading our way. I find it quite surprising given the 'economic crisis'.

Upcoming shows include...
- Beyonce ft. Flo Rida
- Flo Rida (agreed to perform 4 limited shows in all major cities except Adelaide)
- Black Eyed Peas
- All-American Rejects
- P!nk
- Marilyn Manson
- AC/DC
- !3OH3!
- Alice Cooper
- Jimmy Barnes
- Eskimo Joe
- John Farnham
- Chris Isaak
- Britney Spears
- Evermore
- Green Day
- Faker
- Hilltop Hoods
- Katy Perry
- Keith Urban
- Kisschasey
- Nickleback
- Sarah Blasko
- The B52s & The Proclaimers
- The Script

Even Liza Minnelli is making an Aus Tour :lol:

So whos going to what!?!? Unfortunately I wont be going to any :(

If you look outside of music there has been a lot coming and touring also!
Make this a tour thread for anything i reckon! Musicals,Music,Comedy-all relevant.

French & Saunders are doing their first and last tour of Australia as a leg of their Still Alive! Farewell tour (two more nights till i see them!).
They are touring at least 9 shows in Sydney which wrapped up earlier this week.
A couple in Newcastle which were the first two shows which started June 26th.
A couple in Canberra which i think were just before Sydney.
And there are yet 8 shows in Melbourne which the first was tonight, then about 4-5 in Brisbane, more in Perth and concluding in Adelaide at the end of this month!

Dr Phil is coming here next month for big arena shows in Sydney,Brisbane and Melbourne.

David Copperfield is coming here next month also, doing arena shows in Brisbane,Adelaide,Sydney and Melbourne.

Lady Gaga is possibly doing her own tour of shows at the end of year after it was rumoured she was in talks during her tour with the PussyCat Dolls in May, some say she was a bigger show than the PCD, and she was the opening/warm up gig.

World Wrestling Entertainment did a recent set of LIVE arena shows nationally with shows in Sydney,Brisbane,Adelaide,Melbourne and then Perth.

Andre Reiu! is coming back this year with arena shows in Sydney,Melbourne,Brisbane,Adelaide and Newcastle.

I'm going to Black Eyed Peas in October and I'm going to see The Academy Is... with Anberlin next month! :D

Really, really hope that GaGa comes here for her first ever [major] arena tour, considering how awesome her support set was, I can only imagine how amazing this would be.

If BIG name stars concerts like Celine Dion (2008), wasn't too damn expensive, I would go.
