Backstage on the Flight Facilities national tour, shot on film by Sophie Hur

Off the back of a few gargantuan singles, Flight Facilities have spent the third quarter of 2018 knocking out a pretty special national tour. Appearing at the country’s best venues to sold out crowds, it was living proof that the sky-high duo remain one of Australia’s most-loved live acts.

Joining Flight Facilities and crew was photographer Sophie Hur, who jumped from show to show grabbing some snaps on film. Today we’re happy to share those shots with you.
