Ash and We Are Scientists are set to play a co-headline gig watched by people staying at hotels in Melbourne at the start of August.

The two ever-popular indie rock acts will be heading to the capital of Victoria on August 4th 2010 to appear at the Billboard, one of only two shows which the pair will be playing in Australia on their tour.

Downpatrick's favourite sons Ash have sold more than eight million records worldwide since forming back in 1992 and are often thought of as one of the best British singles bands of recent years.

They have released a string of hits since first rising to prominence with Kung Fu, Girl From Mars and Angel Interceptor 15 years ago.

New York-based We Are Scientists have meanwhile enjoyed significant success in the UK on the back of releases such as Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt and The Great Escape in 2005.

Brisbane's Last Dinosaurs will also feature on the bill, warming up the crowd prior to the headliners taking to the stage.

People who are staying at hotels in Melbourne at the start of August who are keen to get to the gig should act fast to get their hands on tickets, which are available now at a price of A$69.40 (£40.20).
