Tame Impala Launch Big Australian And New Zealand Tour This Year
Australian band Tame Impala have announced they're coming home for shows across the country.
After going down a storm at some of the world's biggest music festivals, including Coachella and Glastonbury, the Perth-based band will bring their tour to Australia and New Zealand in support of their forthcoming fourth album, The Slow Rush, which is set to drop on Valentine's Day.
Kevin Parker's psych-rock outfit will kick off their tour in Auckland, New Zealand, on 16 April before heading back home to the Land Down Under.
They'll hit Brisbane on 18 April, then Sydney on 20 April, Melbourne on 23 April, Adelaide on 25 April before closing in their hometown of Perth on 28 April.
In addition to that, the band has announced they're donating $300,000 to the bushfire relief appeal.
Frontman Parker said: "In the past few weeks, I've been devastated to see what's been happening with the fires at home and we want to do our bit to help.
"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."
Tickets for the Australian shows go live online from 10am local time on 28 January, while the New Zealand show will go up for grabs on the same day at 12pm local time.
