East London luminaries, Rudimental have today announced they’ll be heading back to Australia for a national tour in February 2019, as part of their Toast To Our Differences world tour to celebrate the release of their new album that’s set to drop globally on January 25, 2019. Tickets will go on sale at 11am on Wednesday October 10 through Ticketek, except the Brisbane show which is through Ticketmaster.

The tour will see Rudimental play Margaret Court Arena (Melbourne) on February 8, before moving through to Bonython Park (Adelaide), Old Mt Gamier Gaol (Mt Gambier), Hordern Pavilion (Sydney), Mindil Beach (Darwin), Riverstage (Brisbane) and finishing up at R.A.C. Arena (Perth) on February 17.

With over 1.4 billion global streams, 20 million single sales, 40 platinum awards, 22 million monthly listeners on Spotify (ranked 55th artist in the world), 700 million YouTube views and a global audience of 1.5 million+ across socials, there is no doubt Rudimental are conquering the world and loving every second of it! Their single These Days featuring Jess Glynne, Macklemore and Dan Caplen has racked up more than 2.4million sales worldwide and has just been certified triple platinum here in Australia. The new single with Major Lazer, Let Me Live featuring Anne-Marie and Mr. Eazi is quickly climbing the airplay charts on a similar trajectory to all the other Rudimental singles that have gone before it.

There’s a lot of love for these guys here in Australia (one of their best performing markets) and it’s been over two years since the full band last toured here. But the good news is, they’re pumped to get back to our shores after being reminded of just how fun our Aussie audiences are when they headlined Snowtunes with a DJ set last month. Piers Agget enthuses, “We can’t wait to come out to Australia again. It feels like our second home, we’re gonna be playing the new album and touring with new singers and bringing a new spin on that Rudimental vibe”.

Division Agency are particularly excited to be bringing Rudimental back down under, having enjoyed a long and successful history with the band. They first introduced them to Australian audiences at Future Music Festival back March 2013 where they took the country by storm and proved to be one of the stand out performances that year and in subsequent appearances.

General public tickets go on sale at 11am on Wednesday October 10, with pre-sales beginning with Telstra Thanks® at noon on Friday October 5 and concluding at 5pm on Sunday October 7.

The new album Toast To Our Differences is set for a January 25, 2019 release.
