Three of Australia’s fasting rising talents, Dustin Tebbutt, Lisa Mitchell Alex The Astronaut are heading out on a national tour throughout June and July.
The tour will see the three of them heading out on an extensive tour from Saturday, 10 June to Saturday 1 July, with the tour kicking off in Sydney and concluding in Adelaide with stops off in Newcastle (11 June), Brisbane (15 June), Byron Bay (16 June), Maroochydore (17 June), Fremantle (23 June), Perth (24 June) and Melbourne (30 June).
Dustin came up with the idea for the tour will he was touring throughout Europe, mentioning how he and Lisa Mitchell knew each other for years and wanting to work together more often.
“I was in Amsterdam doing some shows and happened to be talking through it all with my keys player who also plays for Lisa. I think at one point we were joking that they could just stay on stage for both of our sets, and then the Idea to share a band started making more sense.”
Lisa also mentioned how she is “looking forward to these shows” and how she has “never done anything like this.” (sic) Lis also mentions how the title of the tour came about after her brilliant idea of a title didn’t make the cut.
“When Dustin and I were brainstorming the name of the tour, I suggested, ‘New Phone, Who Dis?’ Don’t know why he didn’t go for it (laughs).”
