Tame Impala announce biggest Australian tour this April

Legendary psych-rock phenomenon Tame Impala are hitting Australian and New Zealand roads this April, marking their biggest tour of both countries to date. Armed with songs from their highly-anticipated new album 'The Slow Rush', the musial project will kick off the tour at Auckland's Spark Arena before launching the AU leg at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre. Performances at Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena, Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena (two shows) and Adelaide Entertainment Centre will follow. Perth's RAC Arena will see the final show.

Led by multi-instrumentalist Kevin Parker, Tame Impala have established themselves as one of the country's most astounding live acts. A meditative, light-infused party of psychedelic euphoria, their live experience is renowned worldwide. They impressed audiences last year with headlining slots at prestigious festivals such as Coachella, Glastonbury, Primavera, and Splendour in the Grass.

Their 2015 Aussie tour, which was in the wake of No.1 ARIA charting album 'Currents', saw them sell out venues across the country, including an iconic Sydney Opera House forecourt appearance. Debuting smash hit 'The Less I Know The Better' on tour that year, the anthemic song has accrued over 450 million streams.

Obtaining global success, they boast two Grammy Nominations, eight ARIA Awards and a Brit Award, amongst countless others. Besides his acclaimed Tame fame, Kevin Parker has also lent his musical genius to collaborations with Mark Ronson, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Travis Scott.

"The mind-melting live experience that's made them one of Australia's most treasured and in-demand music exports." – triple j

In response to the bushfires currently ravaging Australia, Kevin has also announced that a donation from Tame Impala's 2020 tour will be made to bushfire relief efforts, saying:

"I've been hanging out to tour Australia for a long time now so I'm super excited to be able to finally be able to announce. 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, so we're going to be donating $AUD300,000 to bushfire relief charities.

We've all seen so many generous donations coming in from all around the world, which is amazing. 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."

Joining Tame Impala on all dates are Texan genre-defiers, Khruangbin. In Australia last year playing their debut sell-out headline tour, the sunny instrumental three-piece will warm crowds with their mind-expanding live show.

On their upcoming visit, they will bring songs from 2019's 'Hasta El Cielo', along with 'Texas Sun', a recent collaboration with fellow Texan, Leon Bridges. A mix of Thai-surf punk, Persian rock music, 1980s' Algerian symphonia with a dash of disco, soul, and Balearic music, their hypnotic live show is not to be missed.
