Tame Impala have been forced to reschedule their upcoming Australian tour

Just a couple of months before his local trek was set to kick off, Kevin Parker has announced that Tame Impala won’t be visiting Australian stages again until December of 2021.

First announced in January of this year, Tame Impala were set to kick off their local tour in April, performing their first headline trek of the country since 2015 in support of their new album, The Slow Rush, with US trio Khruangbin coming along for the ride.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic threw a spanner in the works, and by late March – just weeks before the tour was set to kick off – the dates had been postponed until December of this year. However, as many bands have experienced due to multiple reschedulings, holding any event in 2020 appears to be an ambitious undertaking, with Tame Impala once again pushing back their upcoming tour.

In a statement released today, promoters explained that the shows have been officially postponed due to the “constantly changing nature of the pandemic, and associated Government directives in Australia and New Zealand”.

Now set to take place in December of 2021, the dates and venues follow closely with the previously-planned December tour, albeit with the Sydney and Brisbane shows being switched around.

While tickets to the tour are on sale now via Ticketek, ticketholders are advised that all passes to the previously-announced dates remain valid for the newly-rescheduled performances.
