Einstürzende Neubauten Announce Australian Tour

German industrial post rock icons Einstürzende Neubauten have announced an Australian tour surrounding their appearance at the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in Melbourne next February.

The band will be hitting Australian shores in February playing headlining shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and if their last 32 years of existence is anything to go by, the shows will not be something you’ll want to miss.

Former New Order bassist Peter Hook details an Einstürzende Neubauten show at his Manchester club The Hacienda in his book Hacienda: How Not To Run A Club by describing a scene when singer Blixa Bargeld climbed into the crowd with a jackhammer and began attacking the club’s main support beam risking the building’s collapse. It seems appropriate, since their name is German for “collapsing (verb) walls”.

More recently the band seemed to have calmed down, but their live shows still feature custom made instruments including one made from the blades of circular saws.

You can see the band at:


19 – The Palace, Melbourne
22 – Enmore Theatre, Sydney
23 – The Tivoli, Brisbane

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 9am this Wednesday, September 19. You can get them through OzTix (Melbourne only) or Ticketek (Sydney and Brisbane only).

The band will also play at All Tomorrow’s Parties: I’ll Be Your Mirror in Melbourne on February 17. Two day passes or single day (Sunday only) tickets are available by clicking here.
