RÜFÜS DU SOL Announce National Tour Behind New Album, ‘Solace’
Update 26/10 6.40pm: With tickets literally running out the digital doors, and pre-sales exceeding all expectations, RÜFÜS DU SOL have added a bunch more dates to their ‘Solace’ national tour after selling out some. Extra shows have been announced in Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.
Original Post: Just days after releasing their opus, third album ‘Solace’—and the first under their new name—RÜFÜS DU SOL have announced their return home this summer for a national tour. They’ll play a huge run of shows in some of the biggest venues around the country.
It kicks off with a headlining appearance at Sydney’s Field Day—making it their only hometown show on this run—before hitting big venues in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Margaret River and, finally, Brisbane. The ‘Solace’ tour follows an intensive two-year run behind the previous album, ‘Bloom’, which saw them playing at Coachella to EXIT in Serbia.
The new show will have a bigger emphasis on more band-oriented moments, spurring on jamming and live improvisation. Band leader Tyrone Lindqvist 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,” explains Lindqvist.
