Offshoot no longer, Angus Stone’s passion project Dope Lemon grew some serious teeth and claws with the 2019 release of his second full-length album Smooth Big Cat, and he’ll be roaring and ready to go as he steps off the Groovin the Moo bandwagon for three exclusive sideshows this April and May!
Appearing at the Fortitude Music Hall in Brisbane, the Enmore Theatre in Sydney and the Forum in Melbourne, these much-anticipated shows will display the swaying, swagger filled guitar haze that has made Dope Lemon appointment listening for Stone’s devoted Australian fanbase.
Recorded in his northern New South Wales ranch studio Belafonte, Smooth Big Cat was recently described by DIY Magazine as an “enveloping, blissed-out jam of a listen”.
It features chill singles ‘Hey You’ (#84 in triple j’s 2019 Hottest 100), ‘Salt & Pepper’,’Give Me Honey’ and ‘Dope & Smoke’ which landed at #2 on the ARIA chart upon release in July last year.
Stone played every single instrument on the album, as well as pitching in on mixing and production, proving that the wealth of powers he has spent the last 15 years mastering through his work with his sister via the Angus & Julia Stone juggernaut (not to mention his various solo projects) have turned him into a full-blown musical wizard.
In collaboration with his sister, Angus has released four consecutive ARIA Top 10 albums, built a rabid following all over the world and has become one of the most successful Australian artists of the last 30 years.
These shows will give devoted Dope Lemons the chance to meet their citrus scented heroes by purchasing a special VIP Meet & Greet ticket. Included in this offer is a GA ticket to see Dope Lemon, the chance to meet Angus Stone himself and grab a selfie, early show entry (secure that primo position!), a VIP tour gift, commemorative lanyard and much more.
Ticket holders can also look forward to a travelling pop-up art exhibition at each show, generated by some very Dope Lemons and curated by the band. Giving the fans a juicy new platform at the show.
