Chase & Status have announced their long-awaited return to Australasian stages, touring nationally for the first time in more than a decade – with local drum’n’bass icon Luude tagging along for the ride.

The co-headline tour will kick off in Brisbane (Meanjin) on Friday April 19, when the British duo and Tassie fave will take over the Fortitude Music Hall. They’ll hit up the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney (Eora) next, playing there on Saturday April 20, before heading over to Perth (Boorloo) to play RAC Arena on Wednesday April 24.

Then, following a detour through Auckland (Tāmaki Makaurau) to play the Trusts Arena on Friday April 26, the two EDM acts will wrap their Australian stint up with shows in Adelaide (Kaurna, Saturday April 27 at the Hindley Street Music Hall) and Melbourne (Naarm, Sunday April 28 at PICA).

Tickets for all five shows go on sale next Wednesday (January 31) – first at 9am local time for Aussies, then 7pm for Kiwis – following a presale that kicks off at the same times a day earlier (January 30). Head here to get the lowdown on tickets.

The tour comes in support of Chase & Status’ 2023 mixtape 2 Ruff, Vol. 1. It also marks the duo’s first time playing to crowds all around Australia since 2014, when they toured as part of the Future Music Festival (RIP). They have been back a few times since, though, performing one-off Perth shows in 20116, 2018 and 2023, as well as a one-off Brisbane show in 2017.

Meanwhile, Luude is expected to be dropping his debut album sometime in 2024, having dropped two massive singles in 2023 – the Issey Cross collab Oh My (which also featured Moby) in January, then the Bru-C collab TMO (also featuring Kevin Lyttle) in April. He also went Platinum with the standalone single Big City Life (a joint effort with Mattafix) in 2022, following his double-Platinum, Colin Hay-assisted remix of Men At Work’s Down Under in 2021.
