Simple Plan announce ‘Get Your Heart On! Australian tour



Get Your Heart On! Tour

Get ready for the return of Australia’s favourite punk-pop ensemble SIMPLE PLAN this winter. Simple Plan will embark on a massive tour that sees them hit metropolitan and regional venues large and small in their most extensive east coast tour to date!

Their latest offering Get Your Heart On! (out now through Warner Music Australia) stormed the ARIA charts upon its release late last year, armed with fan favourite and ARIA Top 10 single ‘Jetlag’ (featuring Natasha Bedingfield). The new single ‘Summer Paradise’ is the latest in their artillery of hits alongside ‘I’d Do Anything’, ‘Addicted’, ‘Perfect’, ‘Welcome To My Life’ and many more.

Simple Plan knows how to deliver in their live shows each and every time, proven in their most recent Australian shows last October:  “As the lights went down the band stepped out in front of a full house, with fans as young as twelve right through to those in their thirties ready to rock…An energetic, hit-filled night.” – MTV Australia

The band were so taken by their fans down under, they edited the tour footage to form a music video for ‘Summer Paradise’ ( which had fans all over the country pleading for their return to our shores.

Known for their dynamic, energetic and entertaining live performances, Simple Plan’s recent shows in their homeland of Canada were no exception, “Bouvier and his bandmates returned the love with a fun and fast-paced 90-minute show jumping, twirling, chasing each other around, and diving off stage like they were a pack of hyperactive high-school students in their first band.” – Edmonton Journal, Canada

Since their formation in 1999 and amidst the multiplatinum releases, sold out headline tours and numerous awards Simple Plan have always made one thing clear – their music is all about the fans.

Simple Plan cherish and care for their fans to a near unparalleled degree and at the recent JUNO awards, Simple Plan accepted the 2012 Allan Waters Humanitarian Award for their work through the Simple Plan Foundation which will soon reach the outstanding milestone of $1 million in donations toward young people in need and children facing life-threatening illness in Canada and abroad.

Joining Simple Plan on tour is WE THE KINGS, whose current single ‘Say You Like Me’ from their latest album Sunshine State Of Mind (out now through Liberator) is racing up the US Singles Charts, having hit Top 30 with no sign of slowing down.  The double platinum selling predecessor ‘Check Yes Juliet’ won over Australian listeners with its catchy hooks and the band sold out two headline shows alongside their Soundwave appearances last year.

Rounding out the lineup will be local power-pop dance quintet THE NEVER EVER, a group of exuberant Sydneysiders ready to get crowds moving with their boundless enthusiasm and danceable tunes.
