Leftfield are coming back and will play ‘Leftism’ in full

Leftfield are heading back to Australia and will tour playing their classic Leftism album in full.

Last on Australian soil in 2015, this tour sees the band visiting Sydney, Melbourne, Fremantle and Auckland throughout February 2018.

The band has been touring Europe recently and getting rave reviews for their performances. Leftfield recently released Leftism 22, a very special reissue of their seminal debut album Leftism, and have just completed a series of sold-out tour dates and festival appearances. 

Leftfield was formed in 1989, before emerging publicly in 1990 with Not Forgotten. Their debut album Leftism released in January 1995, it remains one of the defining statements of dance music, a mix of different musical styles and unexpected collaborations.  The album was nominated for a Mercury prize and later voted in the top ten greatest albums of all time by readers of Q magazine.

The album spawned numerous hit singles including Open Up, their now legendary collaboration with John Lydon, Original, featuring Curve’s Toni Halliday, Release the Pressure, featuring Earl Sixteen, and Afro-Left, with vocals by Neil Cole, aka Djum Djum.

Don’t miss the chance to see this monumental album Leftism in its entirety when Leftfield return to Australia in February 2018 – tickets on sale this Friday 8 December.  

The tour will begin in Auckland before heading to Sydney and Melbourne. The last date will be in Fremantle with a show at Metropolis Fremantle on Sunday 3rd February. Tickets will be on sale at OzTix.
