FLIGHT FACILITIES - The RETURN FLIGHT World Tour
A special run of intimate shows to kick off their trajectory into 2018. Having scaled the heights of sell-out orchestral headline shows in The Domain and Sidney Myer Music Bowl and international festival stages, The Return Flight tour serves as a rare opportunity to catch the ARIA award winners, chart-topping performers in close quarters, with a limited ticket release - worth setting your alarm for.
Exhibiting their captivating and ever-dynamic live show, Flight Facilities will close out their tour with lucky Kiwi fans at Auckland’s Powerstation on Friday May 18.
Keeping focus firmly on the music, The Return Flight tour marks the next chapter for Flight Facilities’ collaborators Jimmy and Hugo. “We’re at what feels like a real turning point in our career", says Jimmy, “our lives as individuals are changing and so too is our vision for the band.” The pair have spent the majority of their careers bucking trends in electronic music and have made an art form out of reinvention. Now, they're going back to what it’s all really about; the songs, where fans this year can expect a renaissance of the band’s beloved singles run.
"Need You" & The Return Flight tour follows a tremendous 2017 for the producers, releasing the Hype Machine-topping single “Arty Boy” which has since amassed over 5 million online streams. More recently, their single "Stranded" featuring Broods, Reggie Watts and Saro has served as one of their most compelling pieces of work to date, further cementing their place in the world's electronic scene and propelling them into a league of their own. Outside of the feature artists, the duo also brought together concert pianist Piers Lane, Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa & more, while garnering international support from Clash, Earmilk, mixmag and Indie Shuffle.
Since emerging with the timeless global summer anthem “Crave You”, Flight Facilities have held the formula for feel-good soundtracks that make people want to dance. The pair have risen to international fame with cult hits such as “Clair de Lune”, “Down To Earth” and “Sunshine” - each garnering millions of online streams, while their debut LP, Down To Earth hosted an impressive list of guest artists including Kylie Minogue, Emma Louise, Reggie Watts, Owl Eyes, Bishop Nehru, Micky Green and Giselle. With a new vision and glistening new single “Need You” in tow, don’t miss your chance to see Australia’s production masterminds in these one-off intimate settings, before they take off for yet another unstoppable year.
