LA’s Iconic Synth Electro-Pop Pioneers BERLIN finally announce their first headline Australian shows since 1985.

Beloved 80s band BERLIN has announced an epic ‘Best Of’ Australian tour for 2023, taking to venues in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

The tour – the band’s first Aussie headline shows in 37 years – will kick off in January at the Rosemount in Perth on Friday, January 20 and take to The Gov in Adelaide on Saturday, 21, Factory Theatre in Sydney on Wednesday 25, The Zoo in Brisbane on Friday 27 and the Croxton in Melbourne on Saturday 28.

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

Fusing provocative lyrics with an electronic sound that had as much in common with Donna Summer as it did Kraftwerk, BERLIN created a sound that was both familiar, and unique.

Few bands emerging from the era of BERLIN have achieved as far-reaching and long-lasting an impact and, rarely, such a timeless array of musical grooves. The band’s provocative debut singles ‘Sex (I’m A…)’, ‘No More Words’, ‘Dancing in Berlin’ and ‘Like Flames’ were all chart hits in Australia with ‘Like Flames’ reaching #18.

But it was the unforgettable, intimate, and strikingly beautiful Giorgio Moroder-produced love song, ‘Take My Breath Away’ that took the band to another level. The ballad’s defining role in the Tom Cruise film, Top Gun, helped solidify BERLIN’s everlasting place in American pop culture. The song was a #1 international hit and received both the Golden Globe and Academy Award for “Best Original Song” in 1986.

The ground-breaking synth-electro-pop sounds and amazing vocals of Terri Nunn that continue to define BERLIN will be on show on their ‘’Best Of Tour’’ featuring all the anthems and classics from their entire career including ‘The Metro’, ‘Dancing in Berlin’, ‘Sex (I’m A)’, ‘No More Words’, ‘Like Flames’, ‘Masquerade’ and of course the Top Gun mega smash hit ‘Take My Breath Away’.
