Australian rock legends land in Manchester

We’re excited to welcome DMA’s to Aviva Studios as part of their UK tour.

The Sydney trio are embarking on a UK-wide tour this December, following the success of their highest-charting, fourth studio album. A pandemic creation, How Many Dreams? was released to international acclaim earlier this year and weaves electronic dance elements seamlessly through the beloved foundations of guitar rock and punk.

This is a rare chance to catch Aussie legends Tommy O'Dell (lead vocalist), Matt Mason (lead guitarist) and Johnny Took (rhythm guitarist) here in Manchester. The beloved trio have played some of their most memorable live shows ever in the UK, including at Heaton Park as special guests for The Courteeners and at Wembley.

Come and experience the Warehouse at Aviva Studios in all its glory.

The DMA’s are joined by Liverpool's riotous post-punk four-piece STONE.

This gig is presented by SJM Concerts.

This event takes place in the Warehouse at Aviva Studio. This is a large, high ceilinged space.

There is step-free access to all areas of the venue and the performance space. Access to the Warehouse is via lifts (or stairs) which are located to the left of the city entrance to the building.

For this gig, we will have two accessible viewing platforms available for anyone who needs a wheelchair space or a seat for access reasons. AVP 1 is a small, lower platform with ramp access, which is located to one side of the room closer to the stage area – this has limited capacity. The second, larger capacity AVP 2 is located towards the back of the Warehouse – it is higher above the crowd and has lift access at either end which will be staffed throughout the night. This platform will have dedicated bar service.

The bars at our venue have lowered accessible service points, and induction loops at selected till points.

There is likely to be high noise levels and use of lighting effects such as strobe/haze used at this event.
