Ocean Alley have announced the Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney legs of their upcoming national tour will be postponed until November, along with format changes across shows to keep in-line with current COVID restrictions around the country.
More than 30,000 tickets have been sold to date, with the tour serving as the first opportunity for many audiences to experience the band’s ARIA-nominated third album Lonely Diamond live in the flesh.
As a result of state restrictions, all dates on the tour will now operate as seated shows except Perth. The Adelaide show will take place on November 27 & 28 at Thebarton Theatre.
Ticket buyers are advised to check their emails for confirmation of which dates their tickets are now valid for from their respective ticket agency. Date swaps may be possible pending ticket availability, or a full refund can be obtained from the point of purchase.
In a statement regarding these changes, the band said “This tour has been more than 16 months in the making, but as you know COVID continues to affect us all nationwide. We’ve ben working closely with venues and state health departments, creating different border exemption and quarantine plans in line with each state’s chaining restrictions to ensure we are doing everything in our power to get this tour on the road.”
Australia’s beloved psychedelic-surf-rockers have spent the past decade creating a unique lane for themselves as a proudly independent band. 2020 saw Ocean Alley debut at #3 on the ARIA Album Chart with their critically acclaimed third album Lonely Diamond.
Limited tickets are still available for the Adelaide shows and van be purchased here.
