“This trio already functions like a well-oiled machine, and they’ve produced a stylish debut that demonstrates both their immense talent and impressive instincts.” – Pitchfork
“We already knew frontwoman Hannah Reid had the voice of an angel, but hearing her live and inside an intimate theatre took it to another level… (Reid) hypnotized the crowd with her towering, billowy vocals.” – Time Out Sydney
“The atmosphere was electric… London Grammar delivered a set that was part beauty, part dazzle and part heartbreak. For those who were enamoured with the album, that’s all they could’ve asked for.” – Music Feeds

The band today confirm the show will be held in Sydney. Ballot is now closed and entrants will be sent an invitation for the ticket link from 10am AEDT, today.
London Grammar emerged in 2013 as one of the most exciting international breakthrough acts of recent times. Winning a prestigious Ivor Novello Award for their hit single ‘Strong’, their critically acclaimed debut album, If You Wait has gone on to sell staggering 1.5 million copies worldwide and features the singles ‘Hey Now’, ‘Metal & Dust’, ‘Wasting My Young Years’ and ‘Strong’ led by front woman Hannah Reid’s powerful vocals.
Having met at University, Reid, Dan Rothman and Dot Major bonded over a common desire to make music, and now, as Dan puts it, “Fight tooth and nail over only one thing, which is how to do what’s best for the songs. But not in order to achieve perfection. We really believe that the beauty is in the imperfection.”
With multiple sold out tours and headline slots across a raft of high profile festivals, including the illustrious John Peel Stage at Glastonbury in 2014. International success swiftly followed with high profile US TV performances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and The Late Show With Letterman plus sold out shows across the United States and Europe.
London Grammar first captivated Australian fans with their debut performances in the country at The Falls Music And Arts Festival in early 2013. In September that year, If You Wait entered the ARIA Albums Chart at #2 and went on to achieve double platinum sales. The band’s most recent trip down under in March 2015 saw them perform five, sold-out, headline shows across the country, including Redhill Auditorium, Riverstage and Festival Hall, plus two Sydney shows at the Hordern Pavilion andThe Enmore with the likes of The Music declaring, “with Reid’s vocals pushing the performance to new heights, elating every soul and leaving everyone hoping that it’s not as long between visits for London Grammar.”
