Rex Orange County is finally returning to Australia and New Zealand.

Originally meant to tour here last year, the indie-pop singer-songwriter will now perform in Wellington, Auckland, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth this September and October (see full dates below).

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 16th at 9am local time. The Live Nation pre-sale begins on Thursday, June 15th at 9am local time. Fans that bought tickets to the artist’s previously announced 2022 tour can also gain first access to tickets on Wednesday, June 14th at 9am local time.

“This has been a long time coming, I am SO excited to be announcing these shows and playing some of these cities for the first time,” Rex wrote on social media today.

Rex is belatedly touring in support of his latest album, WHO CARES?, which topped the UK Albums Chart and reached number two on the ARIA Albums Chart.

Recorded in Amsterdam in a mere 12 days, the English artist’s fourth studio album was a collaboration with Dutch musician Benny Sings, while it also featured contributions from Tyler, the Creator (Rex previously featured on the rapper’s 2017 album Flower Boy).

WHO CARES? was included in Complex‘s Best of 2022 So Far list, with the publication hailing it as “sobering, uplifting, fun,¬†and honest all at the same time, making for a great addition to his expanding catalog.”

WHO CARES? was followed by the song “THREAT”, described by The New York Times as “a tender take on self-doubt.”
