Off the back of an enormous year for the young artist including the release of her debut album Sugar Mountain to widespread critical acclaim, countless sold out shows and three ARIA nominations to name but a few milestones, I OH YOU are today pleased to present Jack River’s Sugar Mountain Ball, touring Australian theatres this May and June in the biggest rooms Jack River has headlined.
Jack River explains, “To complete the Sugar Mountain dream I am coming out to theatres to have the prom night we all never had. I made this album to be a grand and brilliant sparkly ballroom where you pour your whole heart out on the dancefloor to heal and cry and become strong. This tour will be the realisation of that ballroom where everything will shine and melt and taste like sugar.”
Presented by and announced via triple j, the Sugar Mountain Ball will transform venues across the country into real life ballrooms reminiscent of 90’s proms past. The tour will begin at Brisbane’s Tivoli on Friday 31 May taking in Melbourne’s Forum Theatre, Sydney’s Enmore Theatre, Fremantle’s Metropolis and finish up at Adelaide’s The Gov on Friday 14 June.
Brisbane pop princess Eves Karydas who’s most recent tracks include Further Than The Planes Fly , Wildest Ones and Couch will be the main support on all shows except Fremantle. Young WA up-and-coming hip-hop artist Arno Faraji will treat Fremantle fans to his self-proclaimed “vibe music” and opening proceedings across all shows will be Gold Coast local San Mei, who’s guitar-heavy, delay-ridden, dreamy pop can be heard on tracks Wonder, Heaven and Two Planets.
“Eves Karydas, San Mei & Arno Faraji are three of the most incredible artists in Australia right now,” explains Jack River, “I have on repeat everyday. These artists are bold and individual in their feats to create their own brand of alt pop music – it’s going to be an honour to share the stage with them.”
But touring is where Jack River feels most alive! “Meeting fans all around Australia over the past year has been unlike anything I ever imagined,” she explains. “The experience of sharing my songs has given me magic fuel to dream bigger and brighter – this tour will be a celebration of that. I also encourage you ALL to dress like you’re coming to the prom of your dreams.”
Join Jack River with Eves Karydas, San Mei and guaranteed glitter in your hair for weeks to follow, at the Sugar Mountain Ball in your city.
