East London luminaries, Rudimental have today announced that, due to scheduling conflicts, their highly anticipated Toast To Our Differences Australian tour will be rescheduled for May/June 2019. The tour will now see Rudimental play Metro City in Perth on May 31, before moving through to Adelaide, Mt Gambier, Brisbane, Sydney, Darwin, and wrapping up at Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne on Sunday June 9. The group have also announced that beloved Australian dance pop group Sneaky Sound System will be on support duties for the tour. Rudimental’s new album Toast To Our Differences was released Friday January 25.
Sneaky Sound System have been household names in Australia since the mid-2000s, with massive hits UFO, Pictures and I Love It spearheading their 3x platinum self-titled album. In a swirling midst of albums, tours and multiple ARIA nominations, lead vocalist Connie even lent her voice and lyrics to superstars Kanye West, Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg. Sneaky Sound System take listeners on a house music journey; from slow chugging burners to groove‐laden euphoria, amplified by Connie’s sublime vocals… it’s the sound of summer.
