RÜFÜS DU SOL - SOLACE TOUR AUSTRALIA
After dropping their anticipated third LP Solace on Friday, one of the world’s pre-eminent electronic acts RÜFÜS DU SOL have announced their Solace Australian tour – their biggest Aussie tour yet. The epic run of shows will kick off at Sydney’s Field Day festival on January 1, 2019, before moving through Melbourne to play Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Adelaide’s Entertainment Centre, Fremantle Arts Centre, Margaret River’s Three Oceans Winery and finishing up at Brisbane’s Riverstage on March 2. Massive venues, massive tracks; it’s set to be the Aussie live music event of the new year.
The Australian Solace tour follows a rigorous two-year world tour which saw the band perform everywhere from legendary California festival Coachella, to Serbia’s EXIT. This intensive period of touring helped pave the way for the Solace live show, crafted through years of varied live experience for the band. Giving fans a rare insight into what to expect for the upcoming tour, Tyrone says, “This new show has allowed us to be able to take people on an inner journey and to get lost in the depths of Solace. It’s the most ambitious live experience we’ve put together yet.”
The brand new live show will push the band’s on-stage abilities to new levels. Bringing a host of new analog gear into the fold, as well as a revamped visual setup, the new show will allow for each RÜFÜS DU SOL performance to be sonically distinct. Of the upcoming shows, Jon says, “Some of our favourite moments have been at these outdoor venues. These live experiences bring everyone together - whether you’re losing your friends, or finding new ones, but being so content in dancing and connecting with the music and the band on stage. We really hope to bring those moments and create that emotional connection over the summer.”
