DOPE LEMON Announces Australian Album Tour

DOPE LEMON will perform at two iconic venues following the release of ‘Kimosabè’ in September



DOPE LEMON is going on a short national tour to celebrate his upcoming album, Kimosabè.

Following the release of the artist’s fourth album in September, he’ll perform at The Forum in Melbourne on September 14th, followed by a show at Sydney Opera House the next day (see full details below).

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Thursday, July 20th at 10am local time. The My Live Nation members pre-sale begins on Wednesday, July 19th at 10am local time.

Angus Stone announced his fourth album under the DOPE LEMON moniker last month. It’s a special release for Stone as it’s the first DOPE LEMON record that reveals the man behind the moniker.

“This record is everything that’s me,” he said. “In the past, the artwork has been anonymous in a way because I was trying to explore these styles, and having this shield in front of me was beautiful – I could sort of slink around in the shadows and wouldn’t have the public make judgement on the person behind it.

“This record, I had moments of clarity reflecting on my childhood, and I was able to see where I want to be in the future. So putting myself on the cover just felt right.”

It features the recently released title track, which was inspired by the cult comedy Step Brothers. “Kimosabè” even samples the film, with Will Ferrell and Judd Apatow credited as co-writers.

Kimosabè (the album) is the highly-anticipated follow-up to 2021’s Rose Pink Cadillac, which peaked at number one on the ARIA Vinyl Chart and ARIA Album Chart, and was crowned as triple j’s Feature Album the following year. The title track also placed at number 27 on triple j’s Hottest 100 2021.
