PERTH psychedelic rockers Tame Impala have announced they will be returning home this April for their biggest ever Australasian tour.

The band will kickstart their tour in Auckland, New Zealand on April 16 and then go on to perform in Brisbane (April 18), Sydney (April 20), Melbourne (April 23), Adelaide (April 25) and finally bring down the curtains on their tour in Perth on April 28.

In addition to the huge tour announcement, Tame Impala have also revealed their support for the upcoming run of shows, with Texan trio Khruangbin set to join them on their jaunt around their homeland and New Zealand. The sunny instrumental three-piece will warm crowds with their mind-expanding live show.

Led by multi-instrumentalist Kevin Parker, Tame Impala have established themselves as one of Australia's biggest musical exports. The live experience of their music has been seen by audiences at Coachella, Glastonbury, Primavera and Splendour In The Grass, and it's world-renowned. The tour will conclude April 28 at Perth's RAC Arena.

What: Tame Impala, with special guests Khruangbin When and where: Thursday, April 16. Tantalising with shimmering singles, the most recent 'Lost in Yesterday' is "swimming in nostalgia and hooked on a funky rhythm section" (Billboard). The band's last Australian tour, in 2015, came on the back of their number one ARIA-charting album Current, and saw them play venues across the country, including the Sydney Opera House's forecourt.

Tickets for the Aussie shows go on sale from 10am local time on January 28th, and the Auckland show goes on sale on the same day from 12pm local time in NZ.

Tame Impala are nominated for Best Australian Band and Best Australian Song (for "Borderline") in the brand-new Australian-exclusive categories of the NME Awards 2020.
