We’ve got some seriously epic news that's going to make your Monday. Following legendary performances at Coachella, Glastonbury, Primavera, and Splendour in the Grass, homegrown hero Tame Impala is headed back to our sandy shores for their biggest ever Australian and New Zealand tour.
Kicking off in Auckland on 16 April, the all-ages-show will then head to Brisbane’s Entertainment Centre on 18 April, Sydney on 20 April, Melbourne on 23 April, Adelaide on 25 April; before heading to Perth for a huge hometown show at RAC Arena on 28 April.
But even better, in response to the bushfires currently ravaging our beautiful country, Kevin Parker has announced that a donation from the tour will be made to bushfire relief efforts.
“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. 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’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.”
That’s kind of feel good news we needed to kick off the week.
