After teasing fans last week, Perth psych-rock force Tame Impala, aka local legend Kevin Parker, has unveiled a massive Australian tour.
With Tame Impala’s highly anticipated fourth studio album, The Slow Rush, due out on 14 February, Parker will embark on his biggest Australian tour to date, playing arenas across the country in April before headlining Bonnaroo 2020 alongside Tool and Lizzo.
“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,” Parker said.
Parker has announced that Tame Impala will be making a donation to bushfire relief efforts.
“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 $300,000 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.”
Tame Impala’s last Aussie show was at Splendour In The Grass 2019 when Parker headlined night one of the Byron Bay event.
Tour support comes from Texan outfit Khruangbin, whose debut Australian tour last year sold out.
Tickets go on sale next Tuesday, 28 January, at 10am local time. For more details, head to theGuide.
