The sideshows keep on coming today, with Morcheeba announced as the latest artist on the Bluesfest lineup to plot a run of headline dates.

It’s hard to believe that 2020 is set to mark 25 years since England’s Morcheeba first hit the scene. Formed by Skye Edwards and brothers Paul and Ross Godfrey, the group managed to achieve some impressive chart success over the years, even hitting the Hottest 100 with 2000’s ‘Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day’.

Not long after, the group managed to make their first trip out to Australia, visiting as part of the 2003 Bluesfest lineup, and repeating that feat in 2014 and 2018. Now, even though the group has been a two-piece for a few years, fans will get a chance to wish them a happy 25th anniversary when they appear at next year’s Bluesfest festival.

However, if you’ve been hanging out for another dose of this influential English outfit for a couple of years now, you’re in luck, with Morcheeba also announcing a pair of headline dates while they’re in the country.

Kicking off their Aussie tour with a headline gig at Melbourne’s 170 Russell on April 7th, Sydney punters will get a chance to catch them live when they hit up the Enmore Theatre on April 9th.

Morcheeba will also be found performing a mammoth set at the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm in Byron Bay next April, but if you can’t make it (or want to double your fun), be sure to check out all the pertinent details below.

Tickets to these shows go on sale from 10am local time on Monday, November 4th through Bluesfest Touring, while a pre-sale kicks off at 10am AEDT (or local time) on Thursday, October 31st.
