Frontier Touring are pumped to announce UK rock duo Royal Blood will make their way back to our shores, touring across Australia and New Zealand in December.
“We’re incredibly excited to be announcing these shows in Australia and New Zealand in December this year. We haven’t toured over there since 2018 so we can’t wait to get back out there. It’s been far too long” – Royal Blood
Royal Blood will kick off with a show at Auckland’s Spark Arena on Thursday 7 December, before heading across to Australia for a show at Brisbane’s Riverstage on Monday 11 December, Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Wednesday 13 December, to Melbourne onFriday 15 December to perform at Festival Hall then heading to Adelaide’s Hindley Street Music Hall on Tuesday 19 December before finishing off the tour on Thursday 21 December at Perth’s HBF Stadium.
Joining the British lads will be Psychedelic P*rn Crumpets and The Buoys on all Australian shows plus Racing and Elliot & Vincent in Auckland.
Royal Blood will also be performing at Let The Good Times Roll, Memorial Park, The Entrance, NSW* on Sunday 10 December and Changing Tides Festival, Kiama Showgrounds, Kiama, NSW* on Sunday 17 December.
Last here in Australia & New Zealand in 2018 playing sold-out crowds across both countries, Royal Blood – Mike Kerr & Ben Thatcher – are returning fresh off the back of an extensive tour run across Europe & the US as well as new music, having just released their latest album ‘Back To The Water Below’, out now via Warner Music Australia, HERE. Featuring the singles Mountains At Midnight, Pull Me Through and new track, Shiner In The Dark, ‘Back To The Water Below’ follow three previous consecutive UK #1 albums from the British Duo.
Their breakout year in 2014 including a debut Glastonbury, SXSW and Radio 1’s Big Weekend slot saw the band soar into notoriety. Releasing their debut album ‘Royal Blood’ that same year, the critically acclaimed project became their defining moment, being crowned as the fastest selling British rock debut in three years, with huge tracks Figure It Out and Out Of The Black remaining fan favourites almost 10 years on.
Touring across the UK & US the band won a Brit Award in 2015 for Best British Band, which catapulted them onto the world stage, touring with Foo Fighters and performing huge festival sets across the world including Coachella, Fuji Rock and Australia’s own Laneway Festival.
With a consecutive No.1 for second album ‘How Did We Get So Dark’, Royal Blood’s signature sound was well and truly cemented, with NME calling the project “10 shamelessly melodic rock monsters that hit home like a nail gun to the eardrum”.
Touring with the likes of The Killers, Pearl Jam and Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood began touring the world in their own right, playing sold out shows and festival sets worldwide. Due to embark on an extensive tour of the UK & US from September-November, the duo will be fired up to perform to their biggest fans in Australia and New Zealand this December.
