Indie Internet Sensation Heads To Australia For The First Time in February 2024!

Handsome Tours is thrilled to announce the Australian tour debut of indie rock internet sensation, Petey. Praised by The New Yorker for his “earnest songs and absurd TikToks”, Petey has established a solid following and will be heading over to meet his Aussie fans for the very first time this February.

Petey’s ‘Tour Of The AUS’ begins at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne then heads over to Freo.Social in Perth before heading back east to play all ages shows at The Triffid in Brisbane and the Factory Theatre in Sydney.

Renowned for combining candid and transformative lyrics with a spirited blend of indie rock, emo, punk and electro-pop, the Chicago-bred, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter has exploded in recent years thanks to his wildly popular TikTok channel where his dry comedy works hand in hand with his music. The multi-instrumentalist has racked up a massive 1.5 million followers and Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus is a huge Petey fan. As Alternative press noted, “Petey has cracked the algorithmic code by creating his own world of cathartic abstract art guided by self-confidence, kismet, and above all, good vibes.”

In September this year, Petey released his second album and major label debut, ‘USA‘ on Capitol Records. The follow-up to his 2022 full-length debut ‘Lean Into Life‘, ‘USA‘ finds Petey baring his soul about all the endless things that keep him up at night. As he muses on everything from masculinity to anxiety to the very nature of human existence, he drifts between warmhearted sincerity and delightfully warped humor – a deeply affecting dynamic that also defines the absurdist alt-comedy that’s earned him a massive following on TikTok and over 300 million combined views. Built on his idiosyncratic but viscerally charged breed of alt-pop/rock, USA ultimately brings a gloriously strange convergence of comfort, catharsis and unrelenting joy.

Petey is gearing up to take ‘USA’ on the road. His American tour starts this week with most dates sold out or about to, and another leg added to meet demand. Petey’s Australian debut promises to be something special.
