The first time I saw Empire of the Sun I was completely blown away. They had an elaborate Cirque du Soleil-esque set up with tons of costume changes and props. Yesterday, they released their second album, Ice on the Dune, and it is filled to the brim with a unique blend of sounds and electro beats that are sure to get your feet moving.
Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore created their “post-apocalyptic psychedelic adventure” in 2008 with their debut album, Walking on a Dream, which went on to sell more than a million copies and win a litany of awards. Empire of the Sun’s last tour was filled with dancing swordfish girls, bazookas, and other special effects that are out of this world. I have no idea what they have planned for this tour, but I’m sure it will be spectacular and zany in their typical fashion.
