Drapht will headline his own run of WA regional shows as part of the Back On The Road tour.
While it's been more than a minute since we've had live shows to look forward to, the path to recovery is becoming clearer especially with the 'Back On The Road' WA regional tour.
Spread across 4 headline tours, 10 regional venues and 2,400km of travel, the 'Back On The Road' tour will feature some of WA's finest, home-grown musical stars in August and September.
The first two cabs off the rank are ever-green, hip hop stalwart Drapht (the 'Jimmy Recard' and 'Rapunzel' emcee is also a 2-time ARIA Awards winner) and Fremantle indie pop-rockers Spacey Jane, who last month welcomed their debut album, 'Sunlight', into the world.
These two will play a separate run of August shows in North West towns Geraldton, Exmouth, Dampier, Port Hedland and Broome, inland to Kalgoorlie and to the South West centres of Esperance, Albany, Bunbury and Dunsborough.
Spacey Jane welcome Ghost Care as their support act. While OGs Downsyde as well as Complete join Drapht's tour bus.
Another two headline acts are to be announced for the September run of dates; stay tuned.
"Being a WA-based AU/NZ agent and producer in an industry floored by the virus," promoter Paul Sloan of Supersonic Events/ Billions Australia says, "I couldn't be more excited or proud than to get back to my roots as a WA promoter and send these local legends around our home state.
"Fans, venues, bands and all the various support businesses involved to mount this project all win here and that feels really good.
"Our community is alive and helping each other and that is just the best feeling. We're McGowan Out Tonight!"
