Australian indie rock band Tame Impala will be coming to Singapore this April! Previously here for the 2013 edition of the annual St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival, the psychedelic rock outfit will, blessedly, be playing an air-conditioned venue this time around: The Star Theatre.

Brought in by promoters Secret Sounds Asia, Tame Impala will be playing The Star Theatre on Thursday, 21st April 2016. Tickets go on sale online from 9AM on Monday, 1st February 2016 via SISTIC. Prices range from S$68 to S$148, which we feel are pretty reasonable.
Tame Impala started out as a humble home recording project by mastermind Kevin Parker who writes, records, performs and produces the band’s potent brand of psychedelic indie rock. Loosely formed in 2007, Tame Impala’s list of touring members has been constantly evolving, with the current line-up featuring Cam Avery (bass), Julien Barbagello (drums), Dominic Simper (guitar/synths) and Jay Watson (guitar/synths).
From their debut self-titled EP (2008), followed by the critically-acclaimed first album ‘Innerspeaker’ (2010) and sublime second album ‘Lonerism’ (2012), Tame Impala has garnered legions of fans worldwide alongside an extensive list of accolades, including numerous wins at the ARIAs and Rolling Stone Australia awards, as well as a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album. On Tame Impala’s third and latest offering ‘Currents’ (2015), Parker addresses a blindingly colourful panorama of transition in the most audacious, adventurous fashion he has yet captured on record.
After winning over legendary festivals such as Glastonbury and Coachella, Tame Impala’s first headline show in Singapore promises to be an unforgettable experience, saturated with mind-altering beauty and boundless creativity.
