The Paper Kites Announce 2024 Australian Tour

The Paper Kites have announced a tour of their native Australia playing theatres across the country in June 2024. The tour, their first locally in over two years, comes in support of their sixth studio album At the Roadhouse. It will feature an extended eight-piece version of the group, billed as The Paper Kites & The Roadhouse Band. A full run of dates and ticketing information can be found below.

The tour will include a performance at Brisbane venue The Tivoli, which was recently announced as part of the venue’s Open Season programming for 2024. It will also see the band return to Sydney’s Enmore Theatre for the first time since 2017 and Melbourne’s Forum Theatre for the first time since 2019.

The tour will mark the band’s first time performing in Australia with The Roadhouse Band, which is a trio of auxiliary musicians composed of vocalist/keyboardist/percussionist Hannah Cameron, vocalist/guitarist/percussionist Chris Panousakis and pedal steel player/guitarist Matt Dixon.

After being brought in to play on At the Roadhouse, the band decided to incorporate the Roadhouse Band into live shows supporting the album. The octet played its first shows together across North America in 2023.
