The Buro 24/7 gig guide: February edition
Every month, we'll be compiling a list of the best tours hitting the country. From bratty pop stars who make irresistibly catchy music (Biebs) to landmark Australian rocks acts (Midnight Oil), here, we give you February's best and most recently announced tours.
1. Justin Bieber
Bring your earplugs, because Biebs is coming back to Oz and his screaming girl fans (or Beliebers) will be front row. The Purpose world tour lands on Australian shores next month (March 6-18) are tickets are still available.
2. Margaret Glaspy
The New York singer-songwriter's headline tours kicks off at the Perth Festival on March 2 and finishes at the sold out Golden Plains festival in Meredith on March 11. A new Sydney date has now been added.
