It’s time to get psychedelic, because ya boys Tame Impala are embarking on their biggest tour of Australia and New Zealand ever. And it’s all going down in April 2020.
The gang will be kicking off the tour in Auckland on Thursday 16 April at Spark Arena, and polishing it off in their hometown of Perth at RAC Arena on Tuesday 28 April. And on their way around the country, they will be dropping in to perform at stadiums in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide.
You can expect the setlist to include all of your fave jams from years gone by, as well as some new tunes from their highly anticipated album, The Slow Rush.
Their fourth studio album – featuring singles like ‘Lost In Yesterday’ – drops on February 14, making it the perfect Valentines Day gift from you to you.
Joining the fellas on the tour are similarly mind-warping group, Khruangbin. The Texan three-piece will be making a return after receiving rave reviews for their debut headline tour down under last year.
And with a great big tour comes great big hearts and bigger donations. Frontman Kevin Parker says the band have been “devastated to see what’s been happening with the fires at home and we want to do our bit to help”, announcing the tour will donate $AUD300,000 to bushfire relief.
“We’re still working through exactly where the dollars will go but I want to ensure that no charity in need during this time is overlooked and that our contribution is helpful for both human and wildlife victims, as well being used actively in climate change research and bushfire prevention.”
We love to see it.
So you better hope and pray for your paycheck to come in quick-smart so you can score yourself a ticket to one of the most exciting tours of the year.
Pre-sale tickets go on sale at 10 AM (AEDT) on Tuesday 28 January and 12 PM in New Zealand (we’ve gotta look after the Kiwi fans and their time-zone-difference).
