After heading Down Under for Laneway Festival earlier in 2023, Japanese Australian singer-songwriter Joji will finally give his Aussie and Kiwi fans the chance to catch a glimpse of him at his own headline gigs when he returns for a run of arena shows. The viral hitmaker will make his way Down Under following his current US run of gigs, starting by bringing the Pandemonium tour to Australia's east coast across three dates in November.

The tour will kick off in Sydney at Qudos Bank Arena on Thursday, November 16, before moving to the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Saturday, November 18 and Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on Monday, November 2o.

From there, Joji will cross the ditch and arrive in Auckland for a one-off New Zealand show at Spark Arena on Wednesday, November 22.

Joji's debut headline Australian and New Zealand shows have been a long time coming. After fostering a cult following on YouTube, he pivoted his talents to music in 2017, releasing three studio albums across the following six years.

The entire trio of albums has spawned Top 40 hits in Australia, New Zealand and the US, and Joji is one of only a handful of artists that can claim to have multiple songs with over a billion streams on Spotify — with 'Glimpse of Us' and 'Slow Dancing in the Dark' both passing this impressive milestone.

Concertgoers can expect the heartfelt emotions of Joji's ballads alongside a sprinkling of humour, with his live shows receiving online notoriety for the performer's onstage hijinx between and during songs.

Scottish dance producer and singer Sam Gellaitry will be supporting all four dates, alongside rapper SavageRealm, who is currently opening for Joji on his North American tour.


Thursday, November 16 — Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney
Saturday, November 18 — Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Brisbane
Monday, November 20 — Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne
Wednesday, November 22 — Spark Arena, Auckland

Joji will play four shows in Australia and New Zealand in November 2023. Ticket pre-sales start at 12pm on Thursday, August 24 via Frontier Touring, followed by the general sale at 2pm on Friday, August 25. Head to the tour website for further details.
