Russell Brand slams Sydney's 'preposterous' lockouts

He's going all night when he visits

  • 16 July 2015

Russell Brand has slammed Sydney's lockout laws and vowed to keep the drinks flowing all night on his October tour.

Speaking with the Daily Telegraph ahead of his Australian visit, the UK comedian and activist took aim at the infamous laws, which prohibit people from entering a new venue after 1.30am and ban the service of alcohol after 3am in the Sydney CBD.

"Anything that impairs people's personal freedom, generally speaking, or collective freedoms or public freedoms I am broadly against," he said.

"We will be keeping our venues open way beyond the time of any curfew. We will be serving whatever drinks people want way into the night and we will consider it our duty as citizens of a free planet to stay up way past everybody's bedtime till we are so tired we all start crying just to defy this preposterous law."

We're with you, Russ.

Russell Brand plays the Sydney Opera House and Qantas Credit Union Arena as part of his 'Trew World Order' tour on October 23 & 24.
