Bliss N Eso announce rescheduled Queensland dates for ‘The Sun’ tour

The four shows will now be spread out across June and July

Bliss N Eso have made another change to the itinerary on their current national tour, pushing back four shows across Queensland.

Initially meant to commence at the end of January as part of the 33-date run (which began last month), Bliss N Eso were forced to axe four dates in QLD due to several positive COVID-19 cases in their touring party. The affected QLD shows will now kick off in Townsville on Friday June 24. All new dates can be found below.

Previously, the NSW stretch of Bliss N Eso’s ‘The Sun’ tour was also rescheduled, grouped together into its own leg. Starting in Byron Bay on Thursday April 21, the hip-hop trio will then pass through Lismore, Coffs Harbour, Penrith, Dubbo, Bathurst, Port Macquarie and Newcastle. Shows previously locked in for Albury, Sydney and Moruya remain unaffected.


Butchulla rapper Birdz will support Bliss N Eso on all but three of the NSW dates, with Polynesian hip-hopper MLBRN opening things up in Lismore. Brisbane MC Nerve will step in for the shows in Port Macquarie, Newcastle and all upcoming QLD shows.

All tickets for the original QLD and NSW dates will remain valid for the new shows. Those no longer able to attend will need to submit refund requests by Tuesday, March 1, while remaining tickets are available to purchase from the Frontier Touring website.

The extended COVID-19 restrictions in NSW place roadblocks on entertainment venues hoping to operate at full capacity, as well as bans on singing and dancing. As it stands, the restrictions are expected to be in place until the end of February.

Bliss N Eso released their seventh album, ‘The Sun’, last August via Flight Deck / Mushroom. It spawned a litany of singles, including ‘Lighthouse’, ‘Send It’, ‘Good People’, ‘OG’s’, ‘On One’ and ‘Tell The World That I’m Coming’. The record also sports a stacked bill of featured artists, such as Chillinit, Dizzee Rascal and Kasey Chambers.

Earlier this month, a coroner found that the illegal supply of a weapon and ammunition caused the death of actor and stunt performer Johann Ofner, who was killed after being shot with a blank round during the filming of Bliss N Eso’s ‘Friend Like You’ video in 2017.
