2018 has already been a huge year for the tropical ambassador as he transitions from a hectic international touring schedule as Xavier Rudd’s drummer, and back into focussing on his chilled island-time project. Kicking off the year with over 20 dates across Australia and New Zealand played in support of the first new Bobby Alu track since 2015, he also wooed the royals during a spotlight stealing performance with Ricki-Lee at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony back in April.
In his quest to chase the summer, Alu has just finished the first leg of a 23-date tour, wooing Europe in support of US acoustic groove merchants Nahko (of Nahko & Medicine For The People) and Trevor Hall. Over the second leg through July and August, he hits some huge festival stages including Sound Of The Forest (Germany) and Boardmasters (UK), in between supporting The Beautiful Girls on their ‘Beautiful World’ tour (and if that wasn’t enough, he’ll also serve as The Beautiful Girls drummer, bringing a little more Alu allure to the European summer).
The music video for ‘Move’ is OUT NOW. Bobby Alu’s tour of Europe continues throughout July and August.
