Fresh from an amazing year in 2019, Thelma Plum is set to hit the road in a few months, bringing her Homecoming Queen tour around the country.
Releasing her long-awaited debut album, Better in Blak, in July, Thelma Plum managed to turn 2019 into one of her biggest years yet, hitting #4 on the ARIA charts, and scoring the highest-placed song by an Indigenous act in the triple j Hottest 100 with the title track.
Now, fresh from being announced as one of the stunning Australian artists on the Splendour in the Grass lineup, Plum has revealed she’s heading out on a national tour throughout May and July.
“The last year has been pretty crazy for me since people started to hear Better in Blak, both the song and the album, and it’s been amazing to have the stories which were inside my head resonate with so many people,” she explained.
“It’s given me the opportunity to do some travelling and touring overseas, but it wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t celebrate where we are going, but more importantly where we have been, I cannot wait to return and take my little band family and the wonderful Kira Puru on the road for the “Homecoming Queen Tour””
Kicking off in Kingscliff on May 28, the tour will see Plum visiting most major cities across the mainland, along with appearances at the Big Pineapple Festival, and Adelaide’s Deadly Hearts festival.
Tickets to the upcoming tour are on sale from Friday, February 21. Check out all the details below.
