Tame Impala likely to showcase new album at Auckland concert

Tame Impala likely to showcase new album at Auckland concert

One of Australia's biggest musical acts, Tame Impala - known for their meditative, psychedelic and euphoric live sets - will tour Australia in April to promote their new album, The Slow Rush.

Kicking off in Auckland on Thursday, April 16, the band - with United States psych-rock trio Khruangbin alongside them - will skip over to Brisbane, before tripping around the country and finishing off with a mammoth hometown show at RAC Arena in Perth on April 28.

Joining Tame Impala are Texan genre-defiers, Khruangbin.

If last year's headlining performances at Coachella and Splendour In The Grass are anything to go by, this tour should be a trip for the senses. The tour will conclude April 28 at Perth's RAC Arena.

Rockstar and UKIE respond to Taxwatch UK’s £37.6 million tax relief report
In 2019 Rockstar North claimed £37.6 million under the Video Games Tax Relief scheme, which provides tax breaks to games that pass a "Cultural Test" to assess their British-ness.

The Kevin Parker-led band will play Spark Arena on April 16, where they will likely showcase material from album The Slow Rush, which will be released on February 14.

"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 (AUD) to bushfire relief charities", said Kevin Parker.

Late last week Tame Impala were revealed as headliners on the annual Governors Ball Music Festival in New York City in June. The record, the follow-up to 2015's "Currents", features the singles "Lost in Yesterday", "Borderline" and more.

While Tame Impala headlined Splendour in the Grass past year and the 2017 Laneway Festival, the national tour is Tame Impala's first since 2015 when they played Belvoir Amphitheatre following the release of chart-topping third album, Currents. General tickets go on sale on Tuesday, January 28 10am local time for Australia and midday local time for NZ. With concerts covering most Australian capitals, 2020 looks like it is safely in Tame Impala's hands.
