Wanneroo Times - - News -

Birds of Tokyo will rock the stage at the Wan­neroo Show­grounds for the

City of Wan­neroo Presents Con­cert on 4 Novem­ber. The hugely pop­u­lar band will thrill the crowd with songs from new al­bum

Brace, as well as smash hits Lanterns and I’d Go with You Any­where. Re­cently win­ning a fourth APRA award for Best Rock Work, Birds of Tokyo has pre­vi­ously been recog­nised for a long list of ARIA gongs and a suite of plat­inum plaques, defin­ing the five-piece group as one of Aus­tralia’s top con­tem­po­rary rock bands. Wan­neroo Mayor Tracey Roberts is en­cour­ag­ing the com­mu­nity to be there and en­joy the free event, fea­tur­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary live music from one of Perth’s most well-known ex­ports. “It is ex­cit­ing to have se­cured such a top act for this year’s event, and fans should get ready to be en­ter­tained by the hugely an­tic­i­pated per­for­mance from Birds of Tokyo,” Mayor Roberts said. “The highly ac­claimed band has seen huge na­tional suc­cess, and no doubt tick­ets to the show will be snapped up, so make sure you reg­is­ter early. “Fam­i­lies can in­dulge in a range of de­li­cious of­fer­ings from Perth’s best food trucks or pack a pic­nic and en­joy qual­ity en­ter­tain­ment un­der the stars.” Ac­cord­ing to the Birds of Tokyo,

Brace was created to be played live, with the open­ing lines of the first track invit­ing lis­ten­ers to ‘come take a seat, en­joy the show’. “The setlist is pretty var­ied,” key­boardist Glenn Saranga­pany said. “Songs right from the start of our ca­reer up to the lat­est stuff. I love the fact that our crowds seem to dig the va­ri­ety in the show.”

Tick­ets are FREE but es­sen­tial and will be avail­able ex­clu­sively to City of Wan­neroo res­i­dents from 9am, Mon­day 2 Oc­to­ber 2017. Any re­main­ing tick­ets will open to the gen­eral pub­lic at 9am, Mon­day 16 Oc­to­ber 2017. Visit wan­neroo.wa.gov.au/con­cert
