The alt-pop trailblazer’s third album is due out just over a week before it kicks off.
Oliver Tree has booked a run of Australian and New Zealand tour dates to promote his forthcoming second album, Alone In A Crowd.
It’ll kick off at Shed 10 in Auckland about a week and a half after the LP drops, with the first show scheduled for Tuesday October 10. The following night (October 11) will see Tree play the Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington, before heading to Australia to round the week out with shows in Brisbane (Friday October 13 at the Fortitude Music Hall) and Sydney (Saturday October 14 at the Hordern Pavilion), as well as an appearance at the Yours & Owls festival in Wollongong on Sunday October 15.
Over the next week, Tree and his band will take to stages in Melbourne (Wednesday October 18 at Festival Hall), Adelaide (Friday October 20 at the Hindley Street Music Hall) and finally Perth (Saturday October 21 at Metro City). Tickets for all of the headline shows go on sale at 10am local time this Friday (July 21), with a joint Secret Sounds and Live Nation presale starting at the same time a day earlier (July 20). Head here to sign up for the presale, and here to keep tabs on the general sale.
Alone In A Crowd is due out on September 29 via Atlantic, and has thus far been previewed with the singles Miss You (with Robin Schulz) and Bounce; the former is Tree’s all-time biggest single in Australia, having peaked at #4 on the ARIA Top 50 Singles chart with two Platinum certifications.
Tree last toured Down Under last July, when he performed at Splendour In The Grass on the back of his Cowboy Tears album (which arrived in February of 2022). Reviewing his set for The Music, Mick Radojkovic and Jess Martyn wrote that he is “not one to do anything by halves”, shouting out his “impressive mullet, eccentric style and loud persona” that “made for an action-packed 45-minute set, that also included a few doppelgängers and a few more c-bombs”.
The write-up added of Tree’s performance: “Although his pandering to the crowd felt overly theatrical, his tunes Do You Feel Me, Life Goes On and Cowboys Don’t Cry were clear winners, as were his cowboy hat, scooter tricks and karate moves. In one sentence, his performance was a metaphor for the power of being yourself, and perfectly reminiscent of his album title Ugly Is Beautiful.”
