One of Australia’s most impressive and beloved pop exports, Amy Shark is coming home for an intimate Australian regional tour in October and November. Fresh off her national tour earlier this year, which sold over 30,000 tickets and saw Amy performing at some of the country’s largest venues, Amy will bring her critically acclaimed debut album Love Monster and crowd favourites from her EP Night Thinker to regional fans all across the country. The tour will kick off at NEX in Newcastle on October 3, and will then move through Canberra, Coffs Harbour, Lake Kawana, Darwin, Wodonga, and Geelong, and wrapping up in Hobart at the renowned Odeon Theatre on November 8. Tickets will go on sale on Tuesday 13 August 9am.
An overnight success years in the making, Amy Shark has come a long way since her breakthrough single Adore. In just two years she has gone from moving 82 tickets in her hometown of Brisbane, to selling out arena-sized venues all across the country. Love Monster, her debut album, shot straight to number one on the ARIA charts upon release, and in 2018 she won an impressive four ARIA awards for her efforts. Both Adore and the powerhouse lead single from Love Monster, I Said Hi, have hit Platinum status four times over, with killer singles Weekends, All Loved Up and Mess Her Up all hitting that coveted Platinum milestone.
The upcoming Australian regional tour might be the last chance for fans to see Amy live in such intimate-capacity venues. Thrilled to be heading back on the road in her home country, and endlessly grateful for the massive love from her regional fans, Amy enthuses, “So many parts of regional Australia have backed me since my first Night Thinker EP. I’m really looking forward to travelling around this beautiful country and repaying everyone who’s supported me from the start.”
