KINGS OF CONVENIENCE
Australia Tour February 2024
Handsome Tours and Laneway Presents are proud to present the return of Kings of Convenience in 2024.
Originating from Norway, Kings of Convenience bring their distinctive blend of indie folk-pop to the Australian audience. Described by Pitchfork as “a soft breeze on a summer evening,” their music weaves soft, gentle, and bossa nova-inspired tunes reminiscent of iconic acts like Simon & Garfunkel and Belle and Sebastian, creating a bittersweet yet comforting musical experience.
Founded by Eirik Glambek Bøe and Erlend Øye in 1999, Kings of Convenience swiftly became trailblazers of intimate, acoustic music with their debut, “Quiet Is The New Loud.” After a 12-year hiatus, their latest masterpiece, “Peace or Love,” embodies the enduring essence of their friendship and musical collaboration.
Kings of Convenience’s Australian Tour kicks off at Melbourne’s Forum on February 22, followed by an all-ages show at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on February 24. Brisbane’s Princess Theatre hosts an 18+ event on February 26, leading to the grand finale at Perth Festival’s Rechabite on February 28. Experience their enchanting live performance, where delicate voices, subtle guitar melodies, and captivating stage presence create a mesmerizing atmosphere. Prepare to be moved and inspired, carried away by a sense of enduring peace and love that lingers long after the final note.
