Still floating on top of their five ARIA 2016 nominations, Rufus, are set to hit the road early next year, stopping for shows in regional destinations previously missed during their sold out Australian tour last May. The Full Bloom Tour marks the one-year anniversary of their #1 gold accredited album Bloom, and will be the last chance for Australian audiences to see the band live before they start working on their next album.
The behemoth tour will kick off in the Gold Coast, then will stop by Sunshine Coast, Wollongong, Newcastle, Wodonga, Geelong, Metricup, Canberra, Cairns, Townsville, Airlie Beach and Port Macquarie. Apart from these venues, Rufus will also be headlining Castaway Festival in Perth.
Excited for their regional tour, Rufus will be bringing their amazing live show to audiences that may have never witnessed them live before. After much of 2016 being spent abroad, playing coveted slots at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Outsidelands and Red Rocks in Colorado, the band are thrilled to be spending summer back home in Australia, as Lindqvist enthuses, “We’ve been talking about doing a full summer tour of Australia for such a long time, but have never found the right time for it until now. Spending the Australian summer out on the road with friends playing in all these beautiful places - half of which we’ve never been to…it’s something that's really exciting. We’ve got a healthy mix of outdoor shows in this run to try to take advantage of those summer nights.”
Meanwhile, the Innerbloom remix pack will be out this Friday, featuring the Hype Machine #1 Lane remix, as well as the festival favourite remix by What So Not. Keep an eye out for the upcoming full length video for Innerbloom, directed by long time Rufus collaborator, Katzki, alongside renowned Australian artist Jack Vanzet.
