STATEMENT FROM GREAT GABLE:
Like all our mates in the music industry we’re devastated to have to postpone our upcoming tour of Australia & New Zealand in April, but the most important thing is keeping everyone safe.
Our team has worked hard to pull together an even bigger run of shows in October and November to make up for missing these ones, plus we’ve added a bunch of extra shows across regional Australia in a lot of places we haven’t visited yet.
Big love to all the legends who have already bought their tickets to our April/May dates – your tickets will be fully transferable to the new shows in your city. If you’re unable to make the new dates you will be able to get a full refund at the point of purchase.
Keep supporting all your favourite bands through this time – stay home, buy merch, stream as much music as you can and look after yourselves.
Alex, Cal, Chris and Matt xx
This October and November, Great Gable will perform in Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney, with new dates added in Wollongong, Hobart, Torquay and Maroochydore. The Perth four-piece will also travel across the Tasman sea for shows in Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington. Perth nu-soul R&B producer Jamilla will accompany Great Gable on the tour to open all shows. Melbourne-based Velvet Bloom will deliver her unique blend of jazz, pop and soul to all Australian shows. Additional special guests will be announced in due course.
The news follows the release of Great Gable’s addictive new single All My Friends via ADA Worldwide. Produced by Matt Corby and Alex Henriksson, the track features driving rhythms and golden tones. “All My Friends is about working towards forgiving yourself after hurting someone close to you. It’s coming to peace with the mistakes you’ve made in a relationship and accepting that you’re allowed to move on,” says lead singer Alex Whiteman of the track.
Great Gable has quickly amassed a fervent, die-hard fanbase following the 2019 release of ‘The Lazy Bones’ EP featuring singles I Swear and Cool Mind Blue. Renowned for their mesmerising and commanding live performance, they’ve supported the likes of Ocean Alley, The Jungle Giants, Thelma Plum and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and performed festival sets at Groovin The Moo, Falls Festival and SOTA Fest.

Great Gable is proud to be part of FEAT Artists. A portion of sales from the tour will be invested into FEAT, a world-first initiative that allows artists to balance their carbon footprint from touring by investing into new and existing solar farms around Australia.
“Alex’s voice shines here – the right combo of regretful emotion with a little restraint. “– RICHARD KINGSMILL, TRIPLE J | 4 ½ STARS
“…a dreamy take on their rich indie-pop that balances the bands potent vocals with hearty guitar melodies..”
“..Great Gable has spent most of 2019 making waves, spreading their cool melancholic sound across a multitude of incredible live shows.”
