The Delta Riggs Announce ‘Summer In Space’ Tour
After a monstrous 2015, one of Australia’s most formidable new rock bands, The Delta Riggs will grab the New Year by its horns with their national “Summer in Space” tour.
Few of their contemporaries could compete with the year The Delta Riggs have had. Since releasing their latest album ‘Dipz Zebazios’, the band have spent much of their time on the road. Whether it be in a headline capacity, opening for The Foo Fighters throughout our nations stadiums, supporting local legends You Am I or dominating the stages of Groovin The Moo and Splendour In The Grass. The band have meandered their way all over the country peddling their unique take of no-nonsense, straight-up rock n’ roll.
Dipz Zebazios was followed up with the Dipz From The Zong mini-album. Released as a special edition 12” filled with various remixes, alternate versions and other curiosities informed but its older brother. It would be a Riggs release without a set of tour dates.
The Summer In Space tour will see The Riggs loading up the van and hitting the highways for a run of shows in regional centres. The Riggs will be joined by Brisbane-based hoons The Belligerents and Sydney’s own Wild Honey. The run kicks off at Port Macquarie’s sold out Festival Of The Sun next weekend, and wraps at the triumphant return of Mountain Sounds Festival on the NSW Central Coast.
Ever the hardened road dogs, The Delta Riggs embark on the Summer In Space tour in their finest form yet. Their riffage is as sharp as knives, their tone as bluesy as possible, and cheeky swagger aplenty.
