Not since The Strokes played The Gaelic in 2005 has a band of this calibre (read: popularity) played such an intimate show in Sydney.
Following the release of their second album Congratulations, MGMT has announced a series of one-date European shows with one stop in Australia. The band will be playing Heaven in London on March 18, followed by The Metro Theatre, Sydney on April 6.
While some of our London readers may have already missed the boat - tickets to Heaven sold out - the Sydney show is yet to go on sale. Sydneysiders will have to be snappy to secure one: sales are restricted to two per person and will be available from Ticketek or Metro Theatre at 9am this Thursday 11 March.
Our US and UK readers can head to MGMT's website for more tour dates in the US and Europe.
Following the international success of their 2008 debut album, Oracular Spectacular, Congratulations sees MGMT collaborating with some of their musical idols such as Sonic Boom. Look out for guest vocals from Royal Trux front-woman Jennifer Herrema.
Congratulations is set for release in April 2010, it is now available for pre-order.
