With his buddy Earl Sweatshirt coming down to rock Splendour in the Grass, and a recent release with the excellent Cherry Bomb, many have been begging for an Australian return from Tyler, the Creator. It was to expected.
Robbie Williams is first and foremost, an entertainer. Regardless of whether you first enjoyed his music when he was with Take That or when he branched out on his own through a successful solo career in the early 00's, the British performer has been charming his way across the globe with an impressive catalogue of music for years now. With the cheeky attitude still very much intact, Williams has announced a full headline tour of Australia and New Zealand for later in the year, aptly titled the 'Let Me Entertain You Tour'.
Having finished only their first weekend of a national tour set to continue into June, Sydney's Gang of Youths have - as of today - sold out all shows still to come! The band is next set to play three nights at the Northcote Social Club in Melbourne before hitting up Adelaide, Perth and Fremantle, ending the tour with no doubt another hectic show in their hometown.
Off the back of two sold out shows at The Newsagency in Sydney this past March, Jack Carty and Jordan Millar - talented musicians, songwriters, mates - have decided to take this show format to more venues around the country this August! Both musicians have been working solidly on material that has been released to much acclaim recently; Carty with his third album Esk and Millar with The Wheel EP in 2014. Seeing the two perform together has meant that songs have been given a special opportunity to develop further in some intimate spaces, and it's a fun vibe of show that the two are keen to share with more fans around the place.
Soulful Melbourne based songstress Lucie Thorne drops her new album Everything Sings Tonight on June 1st through Little Secret Records and then two and a half weeks later, she's starting a seriously long 26-date tour across the whole country. Yes, for once this means this means you, Tasmania!
Shlohmo's appearance at SXSW this year proved to be such a popularly anticipated one that we had to barter, flirt and still wait a stupidly long amount of time to get into the venue Henry Laufer was tearing up. The snippet we saw was mindblowing though and when he was announced to be coming through Australia for Splendour in the Grass, fingers were being crossed for some sideshows here and there. Today, BBE and Acclaim Magazine have granted that wish in announcing the first ever WEDIDIT tour of Australia and New Zealand - a run of shows that will see Shlohmo and other WEDIDIT collective members D33J, Purple and Nick Melons take to clubs around the country and over the pond!
Some of our favourite Sydney boys, Lime Cordiale, will be launching their new single "Feel Alright" at some special launch dates in Sydney and Melbourne this July! The track follows on from the successful "Hanging Upside Down" tune which saw the band tour successfully in February and bring them to the attention of many.
Let's take it back to Brisbane, September last year. While members of the music industry are strewn through the Valley as the first night of BIGSOUND showcases take off, it's hard to pick who to see. There are established artists, up and coming fresh faces and bands who'd been out of the spotlight for a little while, all merging together and taking to stages half of us have never spent much time in, if any. It's a task, as I remember it, but in KLP and Gold Fields were two acts I knew I had to see at some stage. LONG STORY SHORT, they were two highlights of mine and I'm stoked to see that both are joining forces for a co-headline national tour kicking off next month!
Fans hanging out for the Waka Flocka Flame Australian and New Zealand tour are going to have to stash their hash and save their grinding for another time, with the rapper's upcoming tour dates having to be cancelled.
Talented rapper and producer Jay Electronica has announced three special Australian tour dates for July! Lauded as one of the most well known and progressive members of the hip-hop industry, Jay Electronica has been mixing it up with artists from all corners of the game, from Mac Miller, Common and more, while Kanye did his bit in bringing him to the attention of many by giving his music public kudos. These tour dates will see Jay's undeniable skills brought to some cool venues in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney - make sure you don't miss out on this opportunity.
Passion Pit will make their return to Australia this August, a long awaited return from the band who have been winning hearts of Australian fans ever since their first trip over some years ago. Their new album Kindred is yet another brilliant musical snapshot from the band and as far as their live shows go, Passion Pit are nothing short of exhilarating to watch.
We may only be in May, so the thought of a 'final headline tour' by an artist for the year may seem like quite the early call. For Gab Strum, aka Japanese Wallpaper, though, he's got a decent reason. The July dates he's announced today will be the final chance fans will have to see him headline venues down the East Coast before he buckles down for his Year 12 exams. Because touring as a successful musician all the while juggling our final year of high school is what we were all doing, right?
Pop punk darlings The Story So Far are trekking to Australia this September for a 10-date tour of Australia with fellow heroes of the scene Man Overboard. Prepare to break out the snapbacks and cargo shorts and get ready to meet us in the pit, because this is going to be a tour no self respecting pop punk bro is going to want to miss.
