Performer Info

Tame Impala: Tame Impala tour dates are currently scheduled internationally and they are hoping to hit it big with a high profile performance at Coachella Valley Music Festival. Australian rock's latest export will be in your area this Spring and Summer, 2011.

The foursome got its start in high school music class in Australia's western city of Perth. They draw heavily on sixties psychedelic rock, folk, and Beatles influenced melodies. They are a self-described "psychedelic hypno-groove melodic rock" band. The original band formed in 2005 and got their start after coming in second at the 2005 Australian music competition, Ampfest. The band unveiled their current name, as well as a new drummer in 2007 and inked a deal with Modular Recordings the following year.

The newly incorporated Tame Impala hit the studio to record their debut EP, "Tame Impala [H.I.T.S. 003]" which was an immediate success. The EP hit #10 on The ARIA charts and released three singles to national radio. The band described the EP as "a beautiful snapshot into what lies within this beast." Tame Impala tour dates were booked nationally, and the band served as the opener for supergroups The Black Keys and MGMT when they traveled down under to perform. The Tame Impala concert schedule also included performances at "Southband" and "Falls Festival" and included a small Australian headlining tour in support of the debut EP.

The band returned to the studio in 2009 to record new tracks and scored a hit with "Sundown Syndrome," which was included on the soundtrack for "The Kids Are All Right," which was nominated for the Best Picture at the 2011 Academy Awards. They booked a national tour in support of the single and their second self-titled EP. Tame Impala concert dates included outings at 2010's "Big Day Out" festival as well as co-headlining performances with Rise Against and Muse.

Their highly anticipated debut LP, "Innerspeaker," was finally released to Australia in May, 2010 and the US in June, 2010 and was an immediate success. It hit the top ten of the ARIA albums chart and was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone magazine. The Tame Impala concert schedule boasted a 2010 headlining tour in Australia and they served as the opening act for MGMT on their American tour. The guys returned to the US for a twenty date headlining tour in late 2010 and were nominated for four ARIA Music Awards at the 2010 ceremony.

The band is a prolific touring act and Tame Impala tour dates are booked internationally through July, 2011. They will appear at California's famed Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April, 2011. They also have dates scheduled at other international festivals and individual shows. They are on the forefront of a musical revolution, don't miss out when they come to a venue near you. Use Eventful as your source for Tame Impala concert dates and venue information .
