Thelma Plum‘s’s ‘Homecoming Queen’ tour has once again been postponed, due to the latest Melbourne lockdown and imposing border restrictions. Scroll down for the full list of rescheduled shows.
The largely sold-out tour, which kicked off this month in Toowoomba, has now had to shuffle various Perth and Melbourne dates to accommodate the latest COVID outbreak.
In a statement today (May 31), Plum said, “good old Covid really is the gift that keeps giving… I was really trying to avoid this but with hard borders and quarantine requirements effecting exactly half my band and crew, we have had to make some changes to the Homecoming Queen Tour to make sure the show really does go on.”
All Victorian shows have been moved into July, and all Western Australian shows have been bumped back to late-June. An additional show will take place in Bunbury at the Prince of Wales on Thursday June 17.
The three previously scheduled shows at The Torquay Hotel have now been condensed into just two shows on Monday 19 and Tuesday 20, July. All tickets remain valid for the new dates.
Kira Puru and Molly Millington will individually support on selected dates before both joining the bill on its final six dates.
Plum’s ‘Homecoming Queen’ tour dates originally supposed to take place in May of last year, in support of the fourth and final single from her debut album, 2019’s ‘Better in Blak’. The shows were postponed to November 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and then postponed once again late last year.
Back in March, Plum won first place in the Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition. Plum received a $50,000 cash prize for her submission, the title track from ‘Better in Blak’.
