Thelma Plum announces 2020 headline Australian tour

Her national 'Homecoming Queen' tour kicks off in May

Singer-songwriter Thelma Plum has announced an extensive headlining Australian tour.

The 13-date ‘Homecoming Queen’ Tour begins in late May and wraps up in early July. The singer will perform in major cities such as Sydney, Perth and Melbourne, as well as a number of regional stops. Check out the full list of dates below.

Plum commented in a press release that the tour is to celebrate the last 12 months of her career, reflecting on both the success of her 2019 debut album ‘Better In Blak’, but also its impact.


“The last year has been pretty crazy for me since people started to hear ‘Better In Blak’, both the song and the album”, she said.

“It’s been amazing to have the stories which were inside my head resonate with so many people. It wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t celebrate where we are going, but more importantly where we have been.”

Joining Plum on tour is Melbourne-based singer Kira Puru, who was recently announced as a part of this year’s Groovin The Moo line-up.

Yesterday, Plum was announced as a marquee act for this year’s Splendour In The Grass, which takes place in late July after her Homecoming Queen Tour. Other acts on the festival’s lineup include headliner Flume, alt-rock band Violent Soho and hip hop act Sampa The Great.

‘Better In Blak’ received critical acclaim upon release. It placed third on triple j’s Album Of The Year listeners’ poll and received six ARIA Award nominations. Three songs from the record, the title track ‘Better In Blak,’ ‘Homecoming Queen’ and ‘Not Angry Anymore’, also clinched spots on triple j’ Hottest 100 of 2019. They came in at number nine, 65 and 78, respectively.

Tickets for the ‘Homecoming Queen’ tour go on sale at 10am on Friday (21 February) via Plum’s official website.
