Tonight Alive have announced their first Australian show in more than four years, celebrating their smash-hit 2013 album The Other Side.

It comes after the Sydney (Eora) pop-punkers confirmed their reunion last November, announcing they’d play The Other Side in full at this year’s When We Were Young festival in Las Vegas. Ostensibly to warm up for those dates (which are slated for October), Tonight Alive will take to the stage at Sydney’s Crowbar venue on Thursday September 12.

It also marks their first hometown show in six years, having last played in Sydney at the 2018 Good Things festival. Tickets for the intimate reunion gig – which at the time of writing, is the only Australian date on Tonight Alive’s touring calendar – are on sale now; head here to grab yours.

The show will belatedly celebrate the tenth anniversary of Tonight Alive’s second album, The Other Side, which itself arrived to critical acclaim in September of 2013. It’s largely seen as the album that broke Tonight Alive in the international market, earning the band their highest charting positions in both the US and UK. It’s best known for delivering singles like The Ocean, Lonely Girl and Come Home.

Tonight Alive initially went on hiatus after Good Things in 2018, but reunited in 2020 to play at that year’s UNIFY Gathering (as well as a fundraiser for the Black Summer bushfire relief efforts). Since then, the band’s members have mostly kept active with other projects – frontwoman Jenna McDougall, for example, launched her solo project Hevenshe in 2022, and released her debut EP with the project, Wild Wild Heart, last November.
