Hot off the heels of their five ARIA 2016 nominations, several laps of the globe including headline festival appearances in Australia, Rufus have today announced an expansive 13 date regional tour of Australia, The Full Bloom Tour. This summer Rufus will be hitting the road, stopping for shows in regional destinations previously missed during their sold out Australian tour in May this year. 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 take time off the touring circuit to start work on their next album.
The tour kicks off at Nightquarter on the Gold Coast on January 20, moving through Sunshine Coast, Wollongong, Newcastle, Wodonga, Geelong, Margaret River, Rottnest Island, Canberra, Port Macquarie, Cairns, Townsville, and wrapping up at Magnums at Airlie Beach on February 26, 2017.
Rufus are excited to be heading out on The Full Bloom regional tour, bringing the stellar live show to audiences that may have never witnessed the group live before. After much of 2016 being spent abroad, playing coveted slots at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Outsidelands and Red Rocks in Colorado, the band are excited 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.”
The Innerbloom remix pack drops 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.
