From unknown artist to international star: multi-talented drummer, singer, songwriter and producer G FLIP is one of a kind. Frontier Touring is thrilled to announce G Flip will return home for the DRUMMER Australian Tour this August/September – performing eight huge shows in Brisbane, Cairns, Adelaide, Perth, Torquay, Melbourne, Sydney and Newcastle.
Transcending boundaries and expectations, G Flip (born Georgia Flipo) is becoming the role model they never had growing up. A near-lifelong musician who took up drumming at just nine-years-old, the rising superstar makes the kind of high-powered rock/pop that could only come from the heart and mind of a drummer. First heard on triple j, last month saw the release of new single Be Your Man (out now via Future Classic), a track showcasing G’s insightful and reflective songwriting talent and building upon the vulnerability they have become revered for with their music.
Today’s long-awaited tour news is a homecoming celebration for the singer, marking their first headline dates on Aussie soil since 2019. Tickets go on sale Tuesday 20 June (2pm local time) via www.frontiertouring.com/gflip. Sign up for early access to the Frontier Pre-sale, which starts Monday 19 June (1pm local time).
G Flip recently announced their debut US headline shows, which kick off in September in Santa Cruz, California. The 25-date run includes New York, Boston, Chicago and more, before wrapping in San Francisco in late October. G also just-wrapped a string of stellar Pride Month performances across North America.
Having delivered 2018 debut smash single About You – named Best New Track by Pitchfork, with Rolling Stone hailing G Flip as an ‘Artist You Need To Know’ – G Flip matches their potent musicianship with equal parts sonic originality and fantastically outspoken point-of-view (an element informed by their experience as a queer, non-binary artist). They sealed their status as a major festival drawcard with their early, debut performance at Byron’s Splendour In The Grass back in 2018, while last year’s massive return – which saw the drummer performing one-handed! – immediately became the stuff of legend. For the past few years G has dominated triple j’s Hottest 100, the biggest listener voted music poll in the world. 2019 debut About Us has amassed more than 180 million streams to date and debuted on #1 on the ARIA vinyl charts and #6 on Album charts.
Joining the tour as special guests: with singles Hard For Me, Arizona and I Suck At Being Lonely accumulating six million combined streams and a Top 4 position at Eurovision Australia Decides in 2022, Sydney-based pop chanteuse Charley (Sydney & Newcastle shows) is on a roll, the energetic singer due to release debut EP ‘TIMEBOMBS’ in late June. Brisbane artist Hope D (Brisbane, Cairns, Perth shows) made her debut trek to Austin’s SXSW in 2023, following the delivery of debut album ‘Clash of The Substance’ in Feb 2023. Having performed festival sets at Groovin The Moo, BIGSOUND, Falls and more, fans were won over by tracks like Doormat and instant earworm Emerald. Inspired by artists as diverse as Toots and the Maytals, Gorillaz, Adele, and Amy Winehouse, commanding Melbourne singer Jacoténe (Adelaide, Torquay, Melbourne shows) was crowned triple j’s Unearthed High Winner of 2022, thanks to top 5 most-played track, I Need Therapy (demo).
Teasing new music on the way soon, G Flip is ushering in a bold new era. Welcome them home – don’t miss G Flip live on stage this August/September!
