Finally showing us there’s proof to the old adage that ‘good things come to those who wait’, Lime Cordiale are set to kick off their long-awaited Aussie tour this month.
It was back in July of 2020 that the Oli and Louis Liembach (that is, Lime Cordiale) released their second album, 14 Steps To A Better You. To say the record was a bit of a success is probably putting it mildly.
With six ARIA nominations (including one for Album of The Year and a win for Breakthrough Artist – Release), an appearance atop the Aussie charts, Gold certification, and a spot amongst Rolling Stone Australia’s Greatest Aussie Albums of All Time list, it’s clear it was a major moment for the brothers.
Since then though, bringing the album to the live stage has been a little bit difficult. In fact, releasing an album in COVID times has been such a difficult experience that it’s only now that Lime Cordiale are set to bring their powerful second album to stages around the country.
Opening proceedings with a huge show at Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl, two nights at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion, and finally, a stellar headline gig at Brisbane’s Riverstage on May 6th.
Check out Lime Cordiale’s ‘Robbery’:
Across their 13-year career, Lime Cordiale have managed to assert themselves as one of the coolest Aussie bands on the scene today, with their live shows playing no small role in helping to prove that fact. Slick instrumentals, huge choruses, and an inimitable stage presence all combine to help prove that these upcoming shows are going to be more than worth the wait.

In fact, the group’s acclaim on the live stage is so renowned that even Dre London – manager for chart-topping icon Post Malone – teamed up with Lime Cordiale after catching their show in Byron Bay a few years back. If that doesn’t help to underline the sort of global appeal that the Liembach brothers hold within their talented hands, then nothing does.
Since the release of 14 Steps To A Better You back in 2020, Lime Cordiale have made good use of their inability to hit the road. Unveiling an extended version of the record in 2020, it was just back in January that the pair shared their latest release, Cordi Elba – a collaborative EP with English musician and actor Idris Elba.
Of course, it remains to be seen just what’s next for the group, but given how truly effortless they make the music game look, it seems as though we won’t be having to wait too long before they return with a powerful third record.
Lime Cordiale’s long-awaited 14 Steps To A Better You national tour kicks off this month, with tickets to their remaining shows on sale now. It’s been a long time coming, and with Lime Cordiale having made it clear that whatever they touch turns to pure gold, then these are some shows you are certainly not going to want to miss.
