The Chats 2019 UK tour.

Formed in 2016 in Queensland, The Chats are one of the most exciting groups to come out of Australia in a long time. Combining a huge 'shed-rock' sound with carefree Aussie personalities and lead vocalist Eamon Sandwith's already-iconic ginger mullet.


The group shot to worldwide notoriety in 2017 with their hit single Smoko, accompanied by a homemade music video posted on Youtube which has garnered over 7 million views to date. From there The Chats have become a household name across Australia and beyond, known for their hectic live shows and no-fucks-given attitude. 


The band's 2019 tour is the second time they've performed a string of shows in the UK, but will mark their first-ever journey to Bristol to play the O2 Academy on Friday 13th December. Before that they'll be playing live in Brighton, Oxford, Norwich, Nottingham, Leeds, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and Cardiff, ending the tour with a show at London's O2 Forum on Saturday 14th.
