Leading the pack are US desert rockers and Josh Homme co-conspirators Eagles of Death Metal, who’ve not visited our shores since 2016. They’ve locked in dates for Sydney, Melbourne and Perth – surely a Perth sideshow must be a sight for sore eyes, huh?
There’s also shows from the likes of famed bluesman John Mayall, a legend in his own right who famously propelled Eric Clapton into stardom after selecting him to play on the 1966 classic Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton. Fellow grizzled blues shark Walter Trout will also jet around the country for a run of dates, as well Morcheeba, Larkin Poe, Buffy Saint Marie, Marcus King Band and War and Treaty. It’s really going down this April!
Check out all the dates and details below. All sideshows are presented by Bluesfest Touring, so we reckon you should head there for tickets.
