For those of you who didn't know yesterday there was the longest eclipse of the sun in the 21st century to date. Of course Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore aka Empire Of The Sun knew this and decided to celebrate this occasion with a 6 and a bit minute live performance at the exact time of the eclipse yesterday in Australia. It happened at London GMT this morning at 4am for those of you wondering why you didn't notice anything different. Wacky costumes at the ready and the band delved into quite an eccentric performance playing Breakdown and Swordfish Hotkiss Night, showcasing what to expect from their stage performances that kick off down under in September.
Fans in Europe will have to wait until next spring/summer to catch EOTS live as they don't intend on playing here until then.
