ANGUS & JULIA STONE
Having just completed some of their biggest shows to date as they notch up sold-out gigs across Europe and the UK and prepare to do the same in the US, Australia’s favourite siblings of song, Angus & Julia Stone are extending their recently announced city dates into a huge nationwide run through regional centres in April and May 2018.
Never ones to shy away from the open road, the Stones will capitalise on the home grown success of their fourth studio album Snow by heading out across the country on an extensive regional tour. Encompassing lands far and few, they will perform in every state and territory, taking in shows in Rockhampton, Darwin, Bendigo, Launceston, Fremantle and everywhere in between. This expansive new set of dates sits in addition to already announced city shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Unveiled in September, Snow has continued a hot streak dating all the way back to 2006, when Angus & Julia first emerged from Sydney’s Northern Beaches toting their signature harmonies and ethereal song craft. Recorded in Angus’ Byron Bay cottage, it is the first album written entirely in collaboration – a process initiated by super producer Rick Rubin while working on the pair’s 2014 self-titled record.
The results, as always, speak for themselves. On release, Snow rocketed straight to number 2 on the ARIA charts, becoming the duos fourth consecutive top 5 album in the process – a remarkable achievement in this constantly shifting musical landscape. The record was also hand picked as triple j’s feature album and has charted worldwide, hitting the top 20 in the US, UK, France, Switzerland and New Zealand.
