Pandemonium Tour Rocks On Despite Line-Up Shake-Up and Venue Changes, Moves Brisbane Show to Eatons Hill

Pandemonium Tour

The much-anticipated Pandemonium Tour will proceed with notable changes to its line-up and venue, including a significant move of its Brisbane show to Eatons Hill, dispelling widespread cancellation rumours and presenting a reshaped musical showcase.

Australia’s rock music enthusiasts can breathe a sigh of relief as the Pandemonium Tour, set to commence in Melbourne on the 20th of April 2024, has been confirmed to go ahead with alterations previously announced. Amidst unverified media reports suggesting the event’s cancellation, the tour’s organisers, alongside headliners Alice Cooper and Blondie, have clarified that the festival is set to rock the nation with a revised artist roster and venue adjustments.

Line-Up and Venue Changes

The festival will feature Alice Cooper, Blondie, The Psychedelic Furs, Wheatus, Wolfmother, Palaye Royale, and Cosmic Psychos, despite the withdrawal of Deep Purple, Placebo, and several other acts. Notably, the Gold Coast event has been relocated to Broadwater Parklands, and the Sunshine Coast’s concert is now slated for Brisbane at Eatons Hill Hotel, reflecting the organisers’ adaptability in the face of logistical challenges.

In light of the alterations, festival-goers have been presented with three compensation options: a complimentary additional ticket, a partial refund, or a Pandemonium hoodie, with ticket prices adjusted to $190 for all shows except Brisbane, now priced at $165 plus fees. 

While some attendees have expressed frustration over the changes, others remain excited, highlighting the polarised sentiment surrounding the restructuring of the event.
