The angel in realtime. tour will be held in Australia’s most spectacular arenas in July and August 2022, kicking off at Perth’s RAC Arena, then to Adelaide Entertainment Centre and Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena, before heading to Melbourne’s iconic Rod Laver Arena. The band also return to Auckland and Wellington for their first Aotearoa headline shows in five years.

“Brisbane and Hobart, don’t worry — something special is coming your way,” the tour organisers said.

They’ve previously released the self- produced single ‘The Angel of 8th Ave’ off their forthcoming album, which tackles the life and times of the group’s singer David Le’aupepe’s father, who died not long ago.

The band – which have roots in christian rock and first came together at Hillsong, before rising to prominence through Triple J, have just begun to creep into the US charts, with their latest release making waves on the Alternative Airplay tallies.

But they return to Australia as bonafide national rockstars, and their national tour should be one to watch.
