Paying homage to the classic performances of MTV UnpluggedMelbourne Recital Centre is delighted to announce that ARIA Award winners and multi-platinum chart-toppers The Temper Trap will be returning home from their London base to perform an intimate, stripped-back performance on Friday 24 November in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall. Incredibly it’s now been over a decade since The Temper Trap formed in Melbourne.


The Temper Trap’s 2016 third album Thick as Thieves returned the band’s aesthetic to the more guitar-oriented terrain of their debut. Now the four core members of The Temper Trap have committed to re-presenting their music in a whole new light in an exclusive Melbourne Recital Centre performance, where they’ll be stripping the band’s powerful songs back to their core essence.


Songs like ‘Sweet Disposition’, ‘Fader’ and ‘Love Lost’ will come alive in a whole new light and drag listeners closer to the heart of The Temper Trap’s music, casting nostalgia aside for a sense of deep euphoria. 

Make no mistake, this one-off performance isn’t as much about turning down the volume as it is ramping up the intimacy and intensity – get ready for a homecoming performance by The Temper Trap unlike anything you’ve seen or heard before!
