Tame Impala announce huge Australian tour, donate $300k to bushfire relief

Finally, after months of speculation, Tame Impala have announced an Australian tour.

In support of their new album The Slow Rush, the psych-rock outfit will bring their huge sound to arenas around Australia and New Zealand.

Tame Impala have announced a gigantic arena tour of Australia and New Zealand in support of their upcoming album, The Slow Rush.

This will be the band’s biggest tour to date. With concerts covering most Australian capitals, 2020 looks like it is safely in Tame Impala’s hands. Supporting Kevin Parker’s outfit on all tour dates will be Texan group Khruangbin. So far, Tame Impala have released four teaser tracks off their new album, each suggesting a slightly different direction to Currents’ pop-orientated grooves and Lonerism/Innerspeaker’s psychedelic reinventions.

If last year’s headlining performances at Coachella and Splendour In The Grass are anything to go by, this tour should be a trip for the senses. Immersing the audience in the colours and rhythms of their individual experience, this is a tour you definitely don’t want to miss.

Kevin Parker is also playing his part in support of Bushfire Relief efforts. In a post, Parker announced, “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.”
