The Veronicas - Revenge Is Sweeter Tour @ Brisbane Entertainment Centre


The Frontier Touring Company is pleased to confirm the homecoming of The Veronicas in 2009. After months of touring abroad our favourite twins will return for a string of shows in February ’09.

Fans in Newcastle, Brisbane, Sydney, Wollongong, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth will be treated to the ‘Revenge Is Sweeter’ tour in what is The Veronicas’ most extensive tour since 2006. Special guests at all shows will be ‘Shake It’ superstars Metro Station, and Sydney’s own Short Stack.

The past 12 months for The Veronicas have been the most frenetic of their lives. Their versatility has been on display as they’ve launched a clothing line, a series of reality videos, toured with the Jonas Brothers, Hanson and Natasha Beddingfield across America, and have received a plethora of favourable US press:

Blender caught a recent New York show and were thrilled with the offering, declaring: “…they flip off rock star moves with the ease of stadium-trained pros”.

Time Out New York announced of Hook Me Up: “(Kelly) Clarkson needn’t rush her return to pop; the Veronicas have more than compensated since she’s been gone.”

The New York Sun described the album as “refreshingly sincere”, and named title track ‘Hook Me Up’ as “the most beguiling pop song of the year”.

While the Examiner were pleasantly surprised: “Hook Me Up… defies the sophomore slump.”

Most spectacular, however, is the success of their critically-acclaimed album Hook Me Up in Australia. Peaking at #2 on the ARIA album chart, Hook Me Up has been the musical juggernaut of the year, spawning four top ten singles, selling in excess of 150 000 copies and garnering four nominations at this year’s ARIA awards. The Veronicas will return to perform for their Australian fans at the height of their career.

“We’re so excited about coming home to tour for our fans in February! We’ve played some amazing shows across America over the last six months, but with all the surprises in store for our Revenge Is Sweeter tour, we think these shows are going to be our best yet. We can’t wait to see everyone again and share the show with you!” Jess Origliasso said.

After thrilling fans in Melbourne and Sydney on a sold out tour earlier this year, Metro Station are set to return in support of their debut self-titled record (out now through Sony BMG). If you missed Metro Station’s high-paced dance-a-thons earlier in the year, you’ll have another opportunity to take part as they support The Veronicas on all Australian show dates. With rock star moves and teen anthems, Metro Station will help raise the roof at these shows.

With a debut album slated for release in 2009, it’s time you were brought up to speed with Short Stack. Slated to open all shows on the Revenge Is Sweeter tour, these boys will be in fine form following tours with Good Charlotte, hellogoodbye and Simple Plan. With a TV show, a range of merchandise and a global fanbase, it’s not long before Short Stack will take on the world.

This triple bill of pop rock goodness will be one of the best tours of 2009 and tickets will sell fast. Avoid disappointment and secure yours when they go on sale this Tuesday 28 October. Please visit for pre-sale details.
