Yesterday Australia time
Faster louder (http://www.fasterlouder.com.au/news/local/34326/More-international-...) and Noise11 (http://www.noise11.com/news/counting-crows-the-lumineers-added-to-b...) both report that Counting Crows has been announced as a headliner act for the Bryon Bay Blues Festival (march/April) 2013!
I can't get to that so I hit up @countingcrows on twitter about possible Melbourne sideshow and got a cryptic message that it's a likely ("Okay") and someone else asked and got an "hmmm yep" .
So we are sitting here waiting for confirmation, who's the promoter and ticketing info! ..
more to come...
