RU­FUS THE FULL BLOOM TOUR

To­day Time: 5.30–10.30pm Where: The Big Pineap­ple, 76 Nam­bour Con­nec­tion Rd, Woom­bye.

The line-up of tunes about to hit the Big Pineap­ple tonight is bloom­ing. Ru­fus is drop­ping into the Sun­shine Coast with The Full Bloom Tour and lead vo­cal­ist Ty­ron Lindgy­ist says the band is ex­cited to be back on the Coast after head­lin­ing at last year’s Big Pineap­ple Fes­ti­val in May.

Hot on the heels of their five ARIA 2016 nom­i­na­tions and hav­ing toured sev­eral times around the globe, the Syd­ney based trio em­braced Ber­lin’s chilly win­ter safe-haven of Euro­pean elec­tro-beats to work on fresh ma­te­rial. Be­ing so far from friends and loved ones emerged a new, emo­tional sound. Just take their de­but, You Were Right, for ex­am­ple. With Lindgy­ist’s raw hon­esty singing, “Un­der the water, I’m sink­ing fur­ther down. Float­ing I’m noth­ing, I’m noth­ing. Arms are wide open, I’m calling out your name.”

Com­bined with a dreamy less-is-more at­ti­tude from drum­mer James Hunt and beau­ti­ful sim­plic­ity from key­boardist, Jon Ge­orge, The Full Bloom Tour is a show not to be missed.

This will be the last chance for Aus­tralian au­di­ences to see the band live be­fore they take time off the tour­ing cir­cuit to start work on their next al­bum in LA.

With the Sun­shine Coast show sell­ing out fast, 500 more tick­ets have been added so get in quick if you want to catch the chilled dance vibes that is Ru­fus. Visit big­pineap­ple.com.au/event for de­tails.
