Whether you like it or not, 2018 is coming to a close, but it isn’t going quietly. With Bon Jovi and Shania Twain hitting our stages in December, this year is certainly going to go out with a bang; and from what we can tell 2019 also has a lot up its’ sleeve. With a selection of music’s biggest acts performing all the way through to February, we’ve got your live music calendar covered.

Bon Jovi

Melbourne | Adelaide | Brisbane | Sydney
Bon Jovi are very much a household name when it comes to rock ’n’ roll. We fell in love with their big hair, only to be captivated by their even bigger hits. Songs like ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ and ‘It’s my life’ are instantly recognisable, helping these global rock anthems withstand the test of time. And let’s be honest, it’s not just their music that’s aged well — I’m looking at you Jon Bon Jovi. These glam rockers are playing shows nationally, starting this weekend in Melbourne. This House Is Not For Sale, but tickets sure are —Don’t miss your chance to see these rock legends from just $49.90. And for those of you in Melbourne, unlock $39.90 tickets via the TIX APP!

Shania Twain

Perth |Adelaide | Brisbane | Hunter Valley
With a whopping amount of awards under her belt, including 17 Grammy nominations, Shania Twain is bound to deliver an epic performance. There’s certainly a reason why she’s been dubbed the Queen of Country Pop, after all her 1997 album Come On Over is the best selling album of all time by a female artist. She might feel like a woman, but you probably feel like going to a great show, so why not grab yourself some tickets? Shania Twain kicks off her tour in Perth this Friday, so you better hurry!  Save up to 72% with Lasttix.


Sydney | Melbourne
Having first hit the scene in 1977, it’s pretty impressive that Toto have remained so prominent in the world of pop culture. Few things in this life are guaranteed, and recognising Toto’s tune ‘Africa’ is one of them. They continue to connect with audiences of all ages with their award-winning records and extraordinary shows . Catch Toto live, with only one show in both Sydney and Melbourne.

Phil Collins

Brisbane | Sydney | Adelaide | Perth | Melbourne
Maintaining relevancy in the music world is no easy feat, unless you’re Phil Collins of course. With a career spanning almost 50 years, the term ‘music legend’ is almost an understatement. From his early Genesis days to his Tarzan hits, Phil Collins certainly knows how to captivate an audience. He can write, sing, play the drums, guitar, and even the bagpipes; is there anything he can’t do? Grab your tickets and ring in the new year with Phil Collins’ Not Dead Yet Tour in January.

Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators

Sydney | Brisbane | Melbourne | Perth
Guns N’ Roses sit high up on the list of rock icons, and Slash was undoubtedly a key player in their notoriety. The guitar riff in ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine’ is universally recognised and a testament to his unparalleled talent. Slash’s solo endeavours have been equally impressive, rocking with a variety of guest musicians. Named The Best Guitarist by Esquire, Slash is a rock ’n’ roll heavyweight not to be missed. Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators are touring Australia throughout January and February  – grab your tickets to see the GRAMMY Award-winning guitarist live.
