Gold Coast-based party starters Bootleg Rascal have just announced a 14-date East Coast tour across metro and regional areas. Along for the ride will be Gold Coast-based New Zealand born rapper Saint Lane who will appear at every show, excluding Sunshine Coast, Hobart and Caltowie.
After being forced to cancel their 2020 plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the group will take to the stage in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Wollongong, Canberra, Sydney, Central Coast, Frankston, Melbourne, Geelong, Belgrave, Byron Bay, Gold Coast, Hobart and Caltowie.
“After moving and cancelling a bunch of dates in 2020, it feels good to finally be announcing something that is more likely to go ahead,” says guitarist Jimmy Young. “Anyone who knows us well, understands how important playing live shows is to us, so fingers crossed we’ll be able to get out there and make up for lost time with some banging parties.”
The band have continually traversed the globe playing multiple sold out headline shows in France, UK, Holland, Germany, New Zealand and Australia, and performed sold out shows in the USA. They’ve also regularly appeared on major Australian festivals including Falls Festival, The Big Pineapple Festival, Lost Paradise, Hills are Alive, Festival of the Sun and Party in the Paddock.
Bootleg Rascal are currently in the studio working on another record, set for release in early 2021. In the coming weeks, they’ll also announce a scavenger hunt for free tickets and merchandise, that will launch via their social media platforms.
