Delinquent party starters Confidence Man have announced their 3AM (La La La) Australian tour for October and November.

“3AM (La La La) is gonna shake your mind, body and soul. If not, sounds like a you problem. It’s bubblegum warehouse at its finest, and that’s a legally binding con man guarantee. We can’t wait for the homecoming of the century. We’re gonna hotbox your head, steal your car, rearrange your body and probably crash your house party. Clothes optional,” Sugar Bones says.

London-based Janet Planet, Sugar Bones, Reggie Goodchild and Clarence McGuffie, aka Confidence Man, return home for their 3AM (La La La) Australian Tour kicking off Thursday 24 October at Freo Social, Fremantle before heading to The Gov, Adelaide on Friday 25 October. The tour continues to the Enmore Theatre, Sydney on Saturday 26 October, then onto The Tivoli, Brisbane on Friday 1 November before two Victorian shows at Torquay Hotel, Torquay on Saturday 2 November and Forum Melbourne on Monday 4 November. Special guest on all shows is London-based, Australian-raised, Loods.

Confidence Man have quickly attracted a hardcore fanbase of ravers, young and old, through their jaw-dropping, high-octane live shows. Before the 3AM (La La La) tour hits Australia in October, Confidence Man are currently on the festival circuit across Europe, UK and the US, including a highly anticipated return to Glastonbury in a few weeks. For the first time, they’re building an ambitious set – helmed by Rob Sinclair, lighting and production designer for none other than Kylie Minogue, Madonna and Tame Impala.

Confidence Man have just announced their third studio release, 3AM (La La La) featuring the sugary shot of euphoria single I Can’t Lose You – album released Friday 18 October via I OH YOU. Pre-order here. The visual for lead single I Can’t Lose You sees the rave-poppers setting their sights sky high – flying over the city of London in a helicopter, naked. They want to whisk you away from the dull wasteland of modern mediocrity, pump up the volume and dump you on the dancefloor.

Following the huge acclaim of their last album, 2022’s Tilt, Confidence Man’s next club-focused chapter began with the release of 2023’s On & On (Again), co-produced with Daniel Avery. They’ve since released underground hits with DJ Seinfeld (Now U Do) and DJ Boring (Forever 2 (Crush Mix)), as well as a remix album (Confidence Man Club Classics Vol 1).

Raised in the Steel City, aka the coastal, industrial Australian town of Newcastle, Loods is an understated character with a fun, raw take on dance music and is special guest on all 3AM (La La La) shows. Since relocating to London in 2018, Loods has delivered a string of high-impact releases including summer anthem Walking Away, a collaborative project with dance music icon A-Trak, peak-time Italo burner Pure Bliss Meltdown (Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune), the Gummi EP, and Riviera. All of this set against the backdrop of extensive touring throughout the UK, Europe and Australia, mixes for Rinse FM, NTS and triple j, and numerous remixes for artists like Pete Tong, Purple Disco Machine, Flight Facilities, and plenty more.

Confidence Man are bigger, bolder and hit harder than a ten-tonne truck. Don’t miss 3AM (La La La) live with special guest Loods this October and November.
