Kimbra has extended her upcoming tour of Australia.

After two home country shows in Aotearoa, including a performance at Synthony in the Domain alongside the likes of Shapeshifter and Dave Dobbyn, the acclaimed singer-songwriter will head to Australia in May.

Kimbra was already confirmed to be making her return to Vivid Sydney on May 26th, and now she’s added two further dates in the country.

The art-pop star will now perform in Brisbane on May 31st at Open Season, followed by a final stop at Melbourne’s Recital Centre on June 2nd (see full dates below). Tickets go on sale to the general public on Thursday, March 30th at 11am AEDT. The pre-sale begins on Tuesday, March 28th a 11am AEDT.

The Australia and New Zealand leg of the tour follows Kimbra’s huge run of shows in North America and Europe. She’s touring in support of her fourth studio album A Reckoning, released in January to strong reviews. “Kimbra proves she’s more than just somebody that you used to know,” the Sydney Morning Herald wrote positively, alluding to the artist’s iconic collaboration with Gotye.

“Simultaneously personal and universal, A Reckoning is career-defining work. Yet again we’re reminded Kimbra is so much more than somebody that we used to know,” Beat hailed, utilising the same Gotye-based joke.

A Reckoning was Kimbra’s first album in five long years, when Primal Heart became a top 40 hit in Australia and New Zealand in 2018.
