After a string of sell-out shows, Flight Facilities announce new national tour

Flight Facilities recent show at Villa completely sold-out, but the duo will be back later this year for another show this time at the Fremantle Arts Centre. So if you missed out last time, don’t delay getting tickets this time round.

Flight Facilities have just released a new single All Your Love featuring Dustin Tebbutt, and to celebrate their taking another trip around the country showing off their much loved back catalogue and new, unheard tracks at shows all across the Australia this August and September.

Four years on from debut album Down To Earth, Flight Facilities could be forgiven for taking some time off to put their feet up. As far as debuts go, theirs was a bonanza. Spawning two symphony concerts, an ARIA award, a Top 5 chart placing and two of the most recognisable Australian dance works of a generation in Crave You and Clair De Lunethe record was a runaway success for the duo.

Not wanting to rest on their laurels and feed the industry beast, the duo decided their next move was to buck the album trend and focus on releasing singles rather than long form projects. The first salvo was last year’s Arty Boy, a collaboration with Brisbane songstress Emma Louise that sported an iconic, nostalgic nature of yesteryear pop, tipping its hat ever so slightly to Prince while still maintaining a classic Flight Facilities feel.

Next was Stranded, an instant classic collaboration created with an international dream team consisting of Broods, Reggie Watts, Saro and instrumentation by Davide Rossi, Touch Sensitive and Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint. This was followed by Need You and now the brand new All Your Love.

Hitting some of Australia’s most iconic venues, the extensive All Your Love Tour will give fans a chance to enjoy Flight Facilities & their newest productions at shows in Sydney, Wollongong, Newcastle, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Melbourne.

OUTinPerth reviewer Tracey Chung described their recent show as “a hell of a good time“, noting that the band lived up to the high expectations of the crowd.

The Perth show will be on Saturday 1st September at the Fremantle Arts Centre. Tickets go on sale 1PM Thursday, 7 June.
