Bluesfest Touring welcomes Gomez back to Australia for their first tour in 6 years and the 20th anniversary of their breakthrough album ‘Bring It On’ that featured the hits “78 Stone Wobble” and “Get Myself Arrested”. With so much to celebrate their Perth, Sydney and Melbourne sideshows are not to be missed. The group stood apart from other bands in the Brit-Pop era in their attitude and sound. Typical of this was the comment from the panel of judges for the Mercury Music Prize who described the album as “an intriguing blend of swamp blues, bar-room rock and eerie power.”
Seamlessly fusing elements of gothic-rock, folk, and doom metal, Wolfe will be performing in Wellington, Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and finally Perth throughout March of 2018.
Wolfe’s music offers a combination of the delicate and the crushing, brooding and visceral, lyrically steeped in introspective dread. The end product is a winning formula that has earned Wolfe critical commendation for the best part of a decade. Her latest release, Hiss Spun, unveiled in September this year, is receiving similar praise.
Wolfe has garnered a considerably larger audience since her 2012 shows. With the release of the critically acclaimed Hiss Spun, it’s expected that these shows will sell out quickly. Grab your tickets early – don’t miss out.
