The homecoming has arrived.

More Gotye More Gotye

World-beater Gotye has today announced an Australian stadium tour. With his track Somebody That I Used To Know, which is lifted from his Making Mirrors album, Gotye has topped virtually every chart in the world, including spending a whopping eight weeks at the top of the American Hot 100 chart.

There's little more introduction Gotye - real name Wally De Backer - needs at the moment, having come a long way since triple j favourite album Like Drawing Blood.

Fans who have liked his Facebook page or who are signed up to his mailing list will receive a password by the end of Thursday 21 June that will enable them to buy tickets before the rest of the world.

In today's announcement De Backer said, "To all y'all long-time listeners, the guys in the band and I are working on a bunch of older songs for upcoming shows - lots of folks were asking for tracks from Boardface and Like Drawing Blood that we haven't played live before. It's gonna be fab to extend the show and play some different things for you, and share for the first time some new visuals from some amazing animators I've been lucky to work with recently."
