The Rubens head out on one of their biggest tours to date, when they hit the road for the Hoops National Tour to celebrate the 7th August release of their sophomore album of the same title.
Taking on 22 dates throughout September and October, The Rubens will be playing fans tunes from their new album Hoops along with some old favourites from their highly acclaimed, self-titled debut. This will be the first time the band have toured the country since their mammoth ‘Never Be The Same’ tour which saw them sell out three Forum Theatres and two Enmore Theatres.
With their new single ‘Hallelujah’ hitting airwaves across the nation, fans have been given a taste of what they can expect from Hoops.
Fans can be sure that all the new songs will translate seamlessly into the live setting, with front man Sam Margin stating: “We put more of a focus on how the songs would work in a live setting for this album. We wanted to write songs that would be fun for us to play live as well as fun for our audience to listen and move to.”
The band can’t wait to unleash their new tracks live, so don’t miss your chance to see them on this run of shows. Tickets will be available for general public sale 9AM on Wed 17th June.
Melbournian 6-piece alt-rock-soul outfit Saskwatch and Central Coast folk rock duo Winterbourne will be joining the bill for most of the dates.
Hoops follows on from the band’s certified platinum, self-titled debut album, which landed at an impressive #3 on the ARIA Album Chart and saw the band win an APRA Award, Nominated for ‘Best Album’ at the j Awards and clocked up three ARIA Award nominations.
Don’t miss The Rubens when they hit your city on the Hoops national tour.
