Armed with a Grammy, seven ARIA nominations, and over 500,000 tickets sold across their North America, UK and Europe Surrender tour, there is no doubt the world has been experiencing the rise and rise of RÜFÜS DU SOL this year. And Australia is up next, with the band’s Surrender tour set to touch down in Aus later this month, kicking off at Brisbane Showgrounds on November 26, before taking in Sydney’s The Domain on December 2 and 3, Adelaide’s Ellis Park on December 10 and Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse on December 15 and 16, before finishing up at Perth’s Langley Park on December 17.
Shaping up to be one of the biggest headline tours of the year, the Aussie Surrender tour will see the band take over festival-sized green sites to present their brand new live show and ARIA #1 album, Surrender, offering the only opportunity for fans to witness the phenomenon that is RÜFÜS DU SOL live in Australia in 2022.
“It’s been three years since we’ve played in Australia, so it feels perfect for these to be the last shows of our world tour this year,” says Tyrone Lindqvist. “We’re really excited to be coming home and performing this new show to our Australian fans, friends and family at the biggest outdoor venues we’ve ever headlined.”
And this tour on home turf will be the perfect way to cap off what has been a truly memorable and mammoth year, having scooped a coveted Grammy for Best Dance Recording, leading the ARIA nominations charge with seven noms for Best Video, Best Pop Release, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best Dance/Electronic Release, Producer/Best Produced Album and Best Group, and playing sold out shows at some of the most iconic venues around the world, including The Gorge Amphitheatre (Washington), Hollywood Bowl (LA) and multiple shows at Red Rocks (Colorado) and Forest Hills Stadium (NYC).
RÜFÜS DU SOL have also today announced their partnership with AIME (Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience) across the Australian tour through their VIKP ‘Very Important Kind Person’ campaign, giving away 5 double passes to some Very Important Kind People.

Equipped with a well-refined, immersive live experience, Australia is in for a guaranteed treat when RÜFÜS DU SOL are finally able to bring their Surrender tour down under in 2022, offering fans a unique opportunity to accompany the band into their world. RÜFÜS DU SOL will be supported nationally by England’s Grammy and Mercury Prize nominated, classicly trained electronic artist, Jon Hopkins, and the band’s Rose Avenue label artists Luke Alessi as additional support in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, and RONA. in Brisbane and Adelaide.
