August 4, 2022 BY Jason Currell
After 32 sold-out U.S. shows this spring, Australian band Vacations come back for the “Return To The Wild West Tour.” It kicks off with their first ever headlining date in Mexico on October 6th in Mexico City and includes a performance at Austin City Limits (Weekend Two) on October 14th, a special set at Meow Wolf in Santa Fe on the 21st, and wraps with three Southern California shows including The Fonda on the 25th and Pomona’s Glass House on the 26th. Tickets go on-sale Friday, and a full list of dates can be found below.
When asked about the run, lead singer Campbell Burns said, “We weren’t expecting to be back so soon! Our fans mean the world to us, so it’ll be exciting to return with a brand-new show, and finally be able to perform in Mexico for the first time.”

A DIY affair from the get-go, the band Vacations formed in 2016 primarily as a songwriting vehicle for Campbell Burns along with band members Jake Johnson, Nate Delizzotti, and Joseph Van Lier. The group released their 2020 record, Forever In Bloom, as 2016’s “Young” went viral for the first of several times on TikTok. “Young” has since been certified Gold in the US, Canada, and Poland, and the hit single stayed on Spotify’s Weekly Top 200 Song Chart for 11 weeks in 2022, racking up over 500 million+ streams globally and over 1.1m Shazam’s.
Stay tuned for more to come from Vacations soon.
