Adalita to dish out musical magic
MELBOURNE rocker Adalita will embark on a major metro and regional tour, starting in October. The Magic Dirt frontwoman will play new material from her second solo album, All Day Venus, which is set for a September 20 release. Adalita will have a full band with her for her headline tour including exParadise Motel bassist Matt Bailey. ‘‘I can’t wait to tour. It’s all I think about, it’s all I want to do, I’m so hungry for it and I want to share that with the people that I bring on board for this band,’’ she says. ‘‘I want to create a little universe that people can enter and really get involved in.’’ Live, the album is likely to take on a life of its own. ‘‘I’ve never had a band on my solo project so it’s all completely new to me and really I’m just gonna be winging it from here on in,’’ Adalita says. ‘‘Of course I’d like to emulate the album and stick pretty close to it but I hope it ends up sounding raw and pretty loud.’’ Opening for Adalita on the tour will be indie songstress, Laura Jean.
Adalita plays the The Zoo, in Brisbane, on October 24 and the Coolangatta Hotel on October 26. Tickets go on-sale on Monday. Visit adalita.com for details.
