Confidence Man closed out 2019 on a high by releasing new single ‘Does It Make You Feel Good?’ and making celebrity fans out of U2 and Noel Gallagher. Now they’re welcoming in the new decade by announcing their first Australian headline tour in two years with a strut around the nation. On support will be the hard-hitting synth sounds of Mickey Kojak and a fusion of house, soul and jazz from Tasmania’s Close Counters.
Confidence Man are also giving one fan and a friend the chance to win an afternoon in heaven with Janet and Sugar, with the ‘Cocktails with Confidence Man’ competition. To enter, fans will need to register and purchase pre-sale tickets to the tour via this link.
A newfound friendship with U2 and Noel Gallagher has landed the band a supporting role in Noel’s UK tour this coming June. In the lead up to these shows, Confidence Man will play at Japan’s Snow Machine festival and support New Order’s sold out Australian shows. In April, they’ll hit the stage with Sofi Tukker in the US, support Lionel Richie in the UK, and travel to the UK/EU for their own huge headline tour.
They have spent much of the past two years playing global festivals, including Splendour in the Grass, Glastonbury, Governors Ball, Primavera and many more. With the ever-greater push towards poptimism and emotional exploration in all areas of music, Confidence Man have no reason to be shy. After all, they know what they’ve got on their hands.
