Time Out says

The mind-melting, spine-tingling Tame Impala have announced their biggest ever Australian tour

Tame Impala is coming to Sydney this autumn for their first tour in five years. In the lead up to the band’s latest album (The Slow Rush, being released auspiciously on Valentine’s Day), the ARIA Award-winning band is embarking on their largest ever tour of Australia and New Zealand.

The psychedelic rock band was formed in 2007 and is arguably the hottest thing to come out of Perth since Heath Ledger. Led by the multi-talented frontman Kevin Parker, the band fast became a favourite on the Australian charts for their goosebump-raising trance rock songs like ‘Elephant’, ‘The Less I Know the Better’ and ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards’.

Tame Impala will be supported by the just as mind-bending Texan group Khruangbin for all tour dates. In light of Australia’s recent devastating bushfires, the band will be donating $300,000 from the tour towards bushfire relief charities. As if you needed another reason to buy tickets.

See Tame Impala at Qudos Bank Arena on Monday, April 20. Ticket presales start Thursday, January 23 with general ticket sales starting Tuesday, January 28.
