The Rubens will hit Bar On The Hill, Newcastle on Fri 6 November as part of their ‘Hoops’ National Tour, celebrating the release of their sophomore album of the same title this August.
Joining The Rubens at Bar On The Hill will be the vivacious alt-rock-soul Melbournians, Saskwatch, and Central Coast folk-rock duo, Winterbourne.
This will be one of The Rubens’ biggest tours to date, taking on 22 dates throughout September and October. The lads can’t wait to unleash their new tracks live from their latest offering, Hoops, along with some old favourites from their highly acclaimed, self-titled debut.
This will be the first time the band have toured the country since their mammoth ‘Never Be The Same’ tour, which saw them sell out three Forum Theatres and two Enmore Theatres.
With new single ‘Hallelujah’ caressing airwaves across the nation, fans have been given a taste of what they can expect from Hoops.
Fans can be sure that all the new songs will translate seamlessly into the live setting, with front man Sam Margin stating:
“We put more of a focus on how the songs would work in a live setting for this album. We wanted to write songs that would be fun for us to play live as well as fun for our audience to listen and move to.”
The band can’t wait to unleash their new tracks live, so don’t miss your chance to see them on this run of shows. A special limited allocation of presale tickets will be exclusively available for Oztix members from 10am on Monday, 15th of June (excluding Enmore, Theatre, Forum and Tanks Arts Centre) and general public sale will commence 9am on Wednesday, 17th of June.
Hoops follows on from the band’s certified platinum, self-titled debut album, which landed at an impressive #3 on the ARIA Album Chart and saw the band win an APRA Award, Nominated for ‘Best Album’ at the J Awards and clocked up three ARIA Award nominations.
