Chart toppers and Aussie legends, Ocean Alley have announced a string of rescheduled tour dates, set to kick off next month! The six-piece have also announced a format change to the tour to keep in-line with current COVID restrictions around the country.
Kicking off August 20 in Brisbane, the tour will continue on to Fremantle, Sydney and Melbourne, before wrapping up in Adelaide on November 28. Along for the ride are Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and Dulcie. All previously announced shows will now operate as seated shows except Perth, which will run at full capacity, standing event, with remaining shows now split into two sessions. The tour marks one of the first times fans will be able to experience the bands ARIA-nominated third album Lonely Diamond in the live arena.
In a statement regarding these changes, Ocean Alley said “This tour has been more than 16 months in the making, but as you know, COVID continues to affect us all nationwide. We've been working closely with venues and state health departments, creating different border exemption and quarantine plans in line with each state's changing restrictions to ensure we were doing everything in our power to get this tour on the road. However, the latest outbreaks in several states mean we have no option but to postpone our shows in Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney until November.
At this point in time Brisbane and Perth are going ahead as per the original dates. We are working on securing border exemptions and establishing strict COVID-safe bubbles whilst on the ground that will allow us to enter and play the shows in QLD and WA. If the circumstances change and we cannot play, we have back-up dates held in November and December respectively should we need to reschedule. Thanks as always for your support and patience. Fingers crossed we'll see you soon! Stay safe."
Ticket buyers are advised to check their emails for confirmation of which dates their tickets are now valid for from their respective ticket agency. Date swaps may be possible pending ticket availability; otherwise tickets can be safely resold via the Tixel marketplace or a full refund obtained from the point of purchase.
