Perth-based psychedelic outfit Tame Impala have this week confirmed their debut Liverpool gig is to take place on September 9 at the Liverpool Olympia.
The Grammy-nominated band led by Kevin Parker have announced the long-awaited show along with a Glasgow date as a warm-up to their slot at Bestival the following weekend.
As well as the Bestival announcement, Tame Impala have also this week been added to the inaugural Berlin edition of Lollapalooza to take place in the same month of September.
The accumulation of live dates during this time has led many to believe September may well be the release date to the much-anticipated follow-up to 2012’s ‘Lonerism‘; although no formal announcements have been made by Parker or management.
Since the release of ‘Innerspeaker‘ in 2010, Tame Impala have not only been at the forefront of the rising Perth music scene, but have seen massive levels of global success; selling out headline tours in the U.S. and Europe and having the likes of Paul McCartney and Noel Gallagher out themselves as fans.
Despite the three year gap between albums, Parker has not been shy of the limelight; most recently working with Mark Ronson on the critically acclaimed “Uptown Special“, on which the Australian contributed to three of the album’s eleven tracks.
Pond frontman Nick Allbrook will also be on the bill at both Liverpool and Glasgow dates to the delight of ardent fans, as the musician was formerly a much-loved member of Tame Impala‘s touring band.
Rarely used for music events, many agree that the Olympia will be the perfect venue for the already-iconic group to debut their distinctive live show in a city so indebted to psychedelic music.
