Show day queuing: Margaret Court Arena does not encourage guests to queue early, and queuing will not be permitted until 8.00am on the show day.

Venue security is not responsible for keeping the order of the line - the line will be self-policed and we strongly encourage you to look after one another, and respect where each person is in the line. Camping within the Melbourne Park precinct is strictly prohibited.

Security & entry: The safety of guests is our number one priority. All guests will be subject to bag search, security wanding and ticket check prior to entering the arena. This can take time, so please allow up to 30 minutes for entry and reduce the amount of items brought into the venue.

Cloaking: Our cloakroom will open approximate 30 minutes prior to doors. Cloaking is limited and subject to capacity. As such we are unable to accept large items such as suitcases or camping equipment such as tents and chairs. Please note cloaking can add significant delays when entering and exiting the venue, so we encourage guests to leave backpacks and any large items at home.

ParkingParking at Melbourne Park is limited and should be pre-booked. Pre-booking is only available until 11.59pm the night before the show.

The tour comes in support of the band’s forthcoming new album, The Balance, due for release on Friday 26 April 2019 through Island Records/Caroline Australia.

Catfish and The Bottlemen released the first taste of things to come in January with single Longshot (which is now closing in on 30 million streams worldwide) and current single 2ALL.

The four-piece released their platinum-certified debut album in 2014. The Balcony introduced the world to hits such as Kathleen and Cocoon, before the band released sophomore full-length The Ride in 2016, including lead single ‘7’, which hit Gold status in Australia.
