The Rubens Free National Tour

Alright guys, summer is almost here so let’s kick this festive season off with a bang. From Menangle, New South Wales, seasoned crowd pleasers The Rubens, much to our delight are once again hitting up their home shores. This alternative five-piece rock band is about to embark on another Australia tour this year and the best part is – it’s free. Yep, that’s right, we said free. These guys are the real deal. 

Throughout November and December the band will play a mammoth 22 shows across New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia. In true Aussie fashion, they’re taking the tour to down-to-earth venues such as local surf clubs and pubs, changing it up from their regular big city gigs. The shows will take place from afternoons to early evenings; they’ve even thrown in a couple of Sunday sessions for us. It’s all very Australian.

Let’s be honest we all love an afternoon bev or two and when the only coin leaving our pockets is for beers it’s really a no brainer. Check out the dates for your closest location, gather your pals and enjoy a cold beer by the ocean, listening to the melodic tunes of the Rubens.
