The Frontier Touring Company is happy to confirm American soul sensation Aloe Blacc will tour Australia following Falls Festival performances at Tasmania and Melbourne and the Southbound Festival in Bussellton, WA.
The ‘Good Things’ tour will kick off on the 1st of January in Melbourne, the perfect cure for that New Year’s hangover! The tour will continue with theatre performances in Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide in the first week of January 2012.
With his mix of old soul sensibility and classic R&B musical styling Aloe Blacc is one of the most exciting artists to emerge in recent times. The unbelievably catchy track ‘I Need A Dollar’ is the first single taken from his second album Good Things and is tearing up the airwaves and charts both locally and overseas.
‘I Need A Dollar’ has reached an impressive No. 11 on the ARIA Charts and is still sitting in the Top 20 fourteen weeks after entering; it is clear that the Australian public are mad for Aloe. The Deluxe CD/DVD Edition of Good Things will hit stores late October (through Sony).
“This feels like the very embodiment of old-school soul: chunky bass lines, punchy horn bursts, unsentimental lyrics, and tough vocals that leap thrillingly into falsetto” - Toronto Star
“Funny how it takes a great song to make you realize how average everything else is that’s coming out.” - Smoking Section
Joining Aloe Blacc at all shows will be Electric Empire. The soulful Australian trio graced the stage at Glastonbury earlier this year and have received critical acclaim for their self-titled debut album, drawing well-founded comparisons to genre heavyweights Al Green and Stevie Wonder.
Warming up all theatres across the country will be Maya Jupiter. The stunning rapper recently relocated from our shores to the US and has been turning heads with her smooth beats and empowering hits showing them what Australia has known all along – Maya Jupiter is a star.
If you have yet to experience the amazing voice and mind-blowing style of Aloe Blacc live in concert, do yourself a favour and don’t miss these intimate shows as tickets are sure to disappear fast.
