Interpol’s and Bloc Party’s 2023 Australian co-headline tour dates are:

NOVEMBER Thursday 16 – Sidney Myer Music Bowl – Melbourne, VIC Saturday 18 – Horden Pavilion – Sydney, NSW Wednesday 22 – Riverstage – Brisbane, QLD

Interpol released their latest album ‘The Other Side Of Make Believe’ in July 2022. The record scored a four-star review from NME ‘s Andrew Trendell, who wrote: “Far from a total reinvention, but all adds up to a confident, rewarding and subtly adventurous new chapter for Interpol – or, as [frontman Paul] Banks sings himself on the peak of ‘Toni’, “ Still in shape, my methods refined” .

Bloc Party’s last album – last year’s ‘Alpha Games’ – scored a three-star review from Ali Shutler for  NME , who wrote: “‘Alpha Games’ sees Bloc Party still championing the ’00s scene that they came up in, but there’s not a hint of nostalgia in sight. With a renewed vigour and the desire to keep things moving, this sixth album could soundtrack a new generation of indie discos.”

Bloc Party & Interpol offer more than just indie rock nostalgia on their Australian tour

Bloc Party's Kele Okereke & Russell Lissack live at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl, 16 Nov 2023

  • X (formerly Twitter)

It's a pretty big deal. Two of the most impactful indie rock bands of the 2000s together on the one bill and back in Australia for the first time post-COVID.

The significance isn't lost on Bloc Party and Interpol , either. Both acts make a point of how special it is to be in each other's graces at the first stop of their co-headline tour , at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

It's safe to say it's a dream come true for the audience, too.

Bloc Party's Kele Okereke performs live at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl, 16 Nov 2023

The largely middle-aged crowd is no doubt comprised of fans who remember the era where Interpol were regarded as New York City's gothic alternative to The Strokes, and Bloc Party were as equally defining to a UK wave popularised by Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, et al.

Their respective debut albums, Turn On The Bright Lights and Silent Alarm , are widely-regarded classics.

The rush of hearing ' Helicopter ' or ' PDA ' — and how they instantly transport us back to a heyday of indie discos, skinny jeans, burnt CDs and urgent emotions — remains palpable.

While there's a minority faction who'll argue both bands would better those records, even the most contrarian fan would concede that most of the older fanbase tonight is waiting to hear 'the old stuff'.

The blogosphere culture and NME cover star ecosystem that helped bring both bands to global acclaim may have all but collapsed. And yet they've persevered, enduring significant line-up changes and shifting musical trends to continue delivering worthwhile records and tours.

It's a tricky position for an artist to be in. Do you exhibit your full artistic range? Or give in and cater to people's thirst for nostalgia?

Before we can answer that question, we need to talk about a support act that, frankly, not enough people came down early to see.

"We're dust from Newcastle. This is a lifetime experience."

The five-piece are clearly stoked to be opening for indie rock luminaries and attack the opportunity with their atmospheric post-punk . They're a tight unit with contagious energy, building layers of pealing guitar and saxophone squall only to punctuate it with explosive spasms of rhythmic, acidic riffs.

dust frontman Gabe Stove performing live, supporting Bloc Party & Interpol at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl, 16 Nov 2023

There's only a small gathering of 60 or so up front, and a smattering of people seated or splayed back across the lawn, but that doesn't stop dust from playing like they're in a sweaty club. Singer-guitarist Gabe Stove is particularly magnetic, thrashing his instrument and lurching around his mic stand, his movements and curly afro bringing to mind the intensity of At The Drive-In.

Cuts like 'Alternator' and closer 'Joy (Guilt)' – with spoken word verses from guitarist Justin Teale – show dust are adept at being both abrasive and introspective. They're an exciting live act, and with an impressive EP under their belt, they're definitely ones to watch rise.

Interpol frontman Paul Banks performing live at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl, co-headlining with Bloc Party, 16 Nov 2023

Interpol are a band best enjoyed under cover of night. All the better to enjoy their claustrophobic atmospheres and dense rhythmic layers, so it feels strange when they begin their set in the early evening sun.

Bathed in purple stage light and dressed in regulation all-black, they begin with moody opener 'Untitled' from Turn On The Bright Lights . (No, no. turn them off!)

Both band and audience take a little warming up, especially since frontman Paul Banks – sporting slicked back hair and shades — doesn't offer much in the way of engagement. To be fair, he's never been a showman, instead relying on the band's noir majesty to captivate.

Case in point: the sprawling 'Take You On A Cruise', highlighting Interpol's tessellating guitars and Banks' foghorn voice, cutting like a lighthouse beam through the musical gloom. They next play 'Into The Night', from last year's The Other Side of Make-Believe , demonstrating how strictly they've stuck to the same aesthetic, even seven albums and two decades into their career.

If you demand growth from your bands that might be an issue, but Interpol's consistency is actually a strength. And once the sun goes down – around the time they perform the stabbing riffs of 'Roland' and the wonderfully cinematic 'Pioneer To The Falls' – the show really kicks up a level or two.

Interpol's Daniel Kessler performing live at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl, co-headlining with Bloc Party, 16 Nov 2023

The strobe lighting and washes of red gain more power, and aside from a few cuts from recent albums (including a burly 'The Rover' and the eerie 'My Desire'), the quintet liberally cherry pick from their first three albums.

'Obstacle 1' is as bracing as ever, the oscillating spellbinding and seasick riffs of 'The New' are potent, while the growling bass intro to 'No I In Threesome' earns whoops of recognition. We're treated to half of 2004 sophomore album Antics , with 'Slow Hands' and the goth-pop 'Evil' getting the biggest reactions of the set.

It took a while to get humming but as Interpol exit to roars of approval, it's clear their decision to deliver a largely crowd-pleasing set was a wise one.

The last time Bloc Party were in the country, it was to perform Silent Alarm in full , so it makes sense for them to focus on newer material this time around.

Getting things started is 'In Situ' and 'You Should Know The Truth', from 2022 return-to-form LP Alpha Games , which might not be as instantly familiar but contain the same surging energy and angular guitars.

Unfortunately, they're beleaguered by a terrible mix up front: the guitars muffled, the bass too low and the vocals too soft. And it doesn't get much better for the remainder of the 20-song set.

Bloc Party's Kele Okereke performs live at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl, 16 Nov 2023

They don't lack presence though, illuminated by an impressive production rig and fronted by the ever-charismatic Kele Okereke . His impassioned vocals struggle to cut through the muddy mix but there's no missing his theatrical facial expressions or efforts to pump the crowd up with handclaps, singalongs, and cheeky banter.

"This is for the person or people smoking the weed," he jokes ahead of diving into the groove-laden title track to July's High Life EP.

Looking like Tobey Maguire cast as Jonny Greenwood in a Radiohead biopic, guitarist Russell Lissack is a subdued figure on stage but lets his instrument go wild.

He gets to shred through the heavier crunch of 'Kettling' (a rare showing from much maligned 2012 album Four ), provides FX-aided fireworks on 'Hunting For Witches' and criss-crosses around Okereke's lines on 'Real Talk' and the sparkling 'So Here We Are'.

Bloc Party's Louise Bartle performs live at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl, co-headlining with Interpol, 16 Nov 2023

But the real star is drummer Louise Bartle . Maintaining wire-tight groove through the sparser 'Different Drugs' or motoring through the up-tempo numbers, she's the cornerstone of the band's infectious rhythmic drive.

Bonus points too for perfectly performing the athletic, kit-smashing parts of Bloc Party's older material (written by original drummer Matt Tong as a kinetic twenty-something), tearing through it with ease and flair.

The set's first real fever pitch moment arrives when Okereke sneaks in an impromptu cover of Paul Kelly 's 'Dumb Things', which immediately ignites into a ripping version of nihilistic A Weekend In The City opener 'Song For Clay (Disappear Here)'.

They segue straight into Silent Alarm favourite 'Banquet', played at breakneck tempo, the entire venue detonating and shouting along at top volume: 'I'm on fire!'

'Traps' follows and manages to capitalise on the momentum somewhat but some relatively weaker selections from 2016's Hymns make for a lull.

Later, when the signature slicing notes of 'Helicopter' arrive, the energy leaps from zero to one hundred again, emphasising the inconsistent feel to the performance. The audience is hot and cold, their energy dipping as they wait around for hits, then skyrocketing when they arrive.

Interpol didn't seem to have quite the same problem, and the uneven feel isn't exactly Bloc Party's fault.

They deliver a dynamic, career-spanning set and compared to previous tours, seem much more comfortable embracing the explosive reactions to Silent Alarm material.

It's a catch-22 many older bands inevitably deal with, but rather than risk becoming soulless jukeboxes placating ageing audiences, seeing Bloc Party and Interpol back-to-back in 2023 feels just as invigorating as it would have in 2007. And that's an experience worth celebrating.

Interpol and Bloc Party Are Coming to Australia This Spring on a Huge Joint East Coast Tour

The 2000s favourites are teaming up to play Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in November.

Interpol and Bloc Party Are Coming to Australia This Spring on a Huge Joint East Coast Tour

Back in the 2000s, if you weren't listing to Interpol and Bloc Party, were you really in the 2000s? No, no you weren't. The former arrived out of Manhattan in the late 90s, then helped define the city's turn-of-the-century indie music scene with The Strokes , Yeah Yeah Yeahs , TV on the Radio and The National. Hailing from Britain and also coming together just before Y2K, the latter initially scored some hefty approval in 2003 via Franz Ferdinand's lead singer Alex Kaprano.

From those beginnings, both bands became indie rock greats. Next, they're heading to Australia to remind music lovers why. Busting out everything from 'Slow Hands' to 'She's Hearing Voices', the two groups will share the same bill on a co-headlining tour of the country's east coast in November, starting at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne , then hitting Sydney 's Hordern Pavilion and finally playing the Brisbane Riverstage.

For Interpol, it'll be their first visit Down Under since 2019, plus their debut chance to play 2022 album The Other Side of Make-Believe in Australia. Tracks from past records such as Turn on the Bright Lights , Antics and El Pintor will also feature.

Bloc Party are making the trip after last rocking Aussie stages in 2018, and will perform songs from  Silent Alarm , A Weekend in the City , Intimacy and 2022 LP Alpha Games .

"We are so happy to be hitting the road with our friends Bloc Party in Australia. Come on down!" said Interpol, announcing the tour.

"The histories of Bloc Party and Interpol are intertwined at various stages of our careers. It made perfect sense to us to solidify that by playing some massive shows together in one of our favourite countries on earth. We can't wait to get back to Australia in November," added Bloc Party's Kele Okereke.

What makes a perfect gig? In my humble opinion there is a lot of factors to this answer. Firstly you need a good band with good songs, a good venue, a very good sound quality and a good audience. Bingo! The Bloc Party gig at the Alexandra Palace have all this elements. Everything was singing along and jumping. Also hugging. Yes I said “bugging”. It’s was like a religious experience. A night I will never forget.

I finicking loved the concert, from beginning to the very end. The openers, Middle Kids, were also pretty good, even though they didn't play a lot. About Bloc Party I am just speechless. They are just awesome. This concert is on my top 3, doubtlessly.

celia-oregta-soot’s profile image

It's been a while and the line up has changed a little but they came out fighting.

For what was essentialy their home town concert they gave it all and bought in the mellower tracks to allow the sweat to dry and Matt to get the drinks in!

The big tunes kept coming though and as a band they are solid and dependable with awesome sound and awesome show.

Being at the Roundhouse also helped as the venue is awesome, but the sound can be lost if you're right at the front hanging over the barrier.

Will be looking to get tickets earlier next time!

[Review] Bloc Party / Interpol @ Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne 16/11/2023

Post Image

In what can only be described as A Y2K indie rockers wet dream, Manhattan force, Interpol , and London legends, Bloc Party team up for an epic amphitheatre takedown. Both groups soundtracked the early noughties with masterful debut albums and their sets on this cool November evening were showcases of their longstanding double decade careers.

Having just returned from a two-week European and UK tour,  Awabakal Land / Newcastle post-punk five-piece, dust settled the crowd with playful power-hits Joy (Guilt) and Ward 52 . 

“We’re dust from Newcastle. This is a lifetime experience.”

As tight and energetic as these young guns were, notably, the rolling green hill of the Bowl was met by ill panning and compression issues on the sound, an unfortunate error that slid into the first half of Interpol’s set and reappeared throughout Bloc Party’s set, seeing the larger-than-life stylings of both indie greatest fractured. Muffled and muddied, the guitars stuck together like chewing gum and vocals were drowned. Gut-punches from the heavy set drumming celebrated throughout both artists’ discographies were non-existent in this fader faux pas but both bands made up for the production problems with intense delivery and enthusiasm.  

Paul Banks strides to the stage mic, his look coming straight out of Don Henley’s ‘Boys of Summer’ – “that hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on baby”. He is joined on-stage by Daniel Kessler , and Sam Fogarino , and touring members Brandon Curtis and Brad Truax all donning head to toe black ensembles and a New York coolness. 

They launch into the mammoth opener of ‘Untitled with the first half of the set topped with classic cannonballs including C’mere , My Desire , Roland , and crowd favourite Obstacle 1 . 

The lighting techs excelled in elevating the show. Interpol lived in red lighting states throughout majority of their set with pops of blinding whites and reflections from the low-hanging mirror-ball behind Fogarino, echoing their 2002 debut Turn On The Bright Lights album title and cover art, and a palette that has been threaded through their entire discography of artwork. 

The screen relay was set to black and white, making use of delays, fading transitions and slow mo effects for a real rock and roll vibe.

To a shifting blue light, Rest My Chemistry from the 2007 Our Love To Admire was a Pixies delight at the time of release. Live, the drifting melody of Kesslers guitar with Banks’ prosaic vocals is transportative.  

Sitting largely in their first three albums, Interpol catered to their mostly middle-aged audience, offering only two recent tracks from last year’s The Other Side of Make-Believe , Into The Night and Toni. They closed out with a chorus of “Rosemary”’s for the highlight Evil , rounding out a quality set with The New and Slow Hands.

The impact of this monumental co-headline tour was not lost on either Banks or Bloc Party’s energetic frontman, Kele Okereke . 

“It’s amazing being back in Australia. It’s been a while so it’s nice to be back with you after so long and sharing the stage with Bloc Party,” Banks acknowledged.

“Good evening Melbournia. We are Bloc Party from London and we are heaps excited to be here tonight. That’s the true,” Okereke quipped as a lead into You Should Know The Truth after slamming in with last year’s Alpha Games hit In Situ . Later in the set, the euphoric This Modern Love was also dedicated to their co-headliners; “They took us on our first ever tour so this song is for them.” 

Kele Okereke’s vibrant green and black cardi, paired with a cream headband, only lasted three songs before being discarded. Bloc Party were here for one reason only. 

“Let’s get this party started,” Okereke exclaimed as the eerie descending notes of Hunting For Witches launched.

Okereke kept the set lively with his contagious stage presence and general hype-attitude. From some cheeky quips to the stage crew “Thank you John that’s enough. He wants his own spin-off show. Now get out of here”, to pumping up the crowd with lines like “Let’s keep it rolling”, his infectious energy rolled into the crowd. 

Offering epileptic strobing, Kettling from the 2013 FOUR brought some pop punk power whilst Song For Clay (Disappear Here) was prefaced by Paul Kelly classic Dumb Things . 

The middle aged crowd of indie rock ‘n’ rollers were blessed back in 2018 with hearing the game changing debut Silent Album in full on Bloc Party’s last tour and it shows that the album is still as beloved. While only four songs made the bill this time around they were all met with explosive sing-alongs. Banquet was the first in the set with drummer Louise Bartle elevating the track with a smashing tempo building to a huge “I’m on fire” screaming match.

Okereke’s energy did not dwindle, incorporating fancy footwork into Different Drugs and playing with the vocal pedals on the ground. He also never missed a beat with the banter.

Ahead of the latest track from The High Life EP , Blue was introduced with a dig at our weather, “If I wanted a cold summer evening I may as well have stayed in London”.

The final leg of the set was one of epic proportions, not just for the song choices but for the audience’s liveliness, which had thus far ebbed and flowed throughout the evening, spiking for nostalgic songs. The brooding So Here We Are saw Bartle back on the fire, a hard task considering Matt Tong’s original drumming was intense and dynamic. Guitarist Russell Lissack came to the party in this section. Whilst a bit of an enigma on stage, he makes the guitar sing the heavenly builds, catapulting the revelatory, “I figured it out”.  

Swapping to cutting guitar lines, Lissack led in a crowd chorus for Helicopter . There is nothing quite like 13,000 people singing the line “As if to say he doesn’t like chocolate”. Flux followed for a dance floor epic. Okereke hugs his guitar to his chest during the second verse before leading a clapping army from front to the back of the hill, leading perfectly into The Prayer.

Revealed as a song about a boy from St Kilda, the Interpol dedicated This Modern Love started off on a high note. A favourite all round, the build in the recorded version is monumental but live it fell flat in the crescendo. The pummelling “This modern love, breaks me” repetitive bridge lacked guts with Okereke singing down an octave. Not quite the euphoric moment experience of their last Australian tour but still the ultimate Bloc Party belter.

Ending on a high note was what Okereke referred to as a certified banger. “We have one more rocket in our pocket. Back home we call this one a banger but I don’t know what you call it in these parts. Do you like a banger Melbourne?”, he questioned, going out with the rambunctious Ratchet.

Whilst both Interpol and Bloc Party sets suffered sound-wise, both 2000’s giants both put on a show set to invigorate the indie dream and the crowd lapped it up.
