Event Details

Vintage Trouble blew away Bluesfest audiences with their blistering live sets at the festival in 2016, leaving new fans in their wake, eager to see them again…Bluesfest Touring has made their wish come true with the announcement that they will be touring again in 2017.

The band has performed on such television shows as Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Later...with Jools Holland as well as supporting Brian May, Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones & The Who.

Their performance on Later... with Jools Holland was one of the most talked about of the year, blowing up Twitter as the 6th most tweeted topic worldwide just hours after it aired. The very next day, their self-released debut, The Bomb Shelter Sessions (2012), entered the charts at No. 1 R&B Album, No. 2 Rock Album, and No. 13 on iTunes. The Bomb Shelter Sessions also earned praise from NPR, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal & Billboard. Their first video, 'Nancy Lee', filmed entirely with an iPhone, won at the Original iPhone Film Fest, not just taking the Music Video category, but the festival's grand prize as well.

On the back of touring with AC/DC in 2015, Vintage Trouble's album 1 Hopeful Rd smashed worldwide charts, hitting No. 2 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart, No. 14 on the UK Album Charts, & the single 'Strike your Light' is No. 1 in Japan. Vintage Trouble has continued to tour non-stop, playing numerous festivals, including Bonnaroo, Coachella & SXSW; their impromptu acoustic Glastonbury set was one of the 2014 festival's most talked about events.

Since their formation , the self-branded "Trouble Makers" have built an immense, fervent fan base with their brand of live-wired, straight-shootin, dirty-mouth'd, pelvis-pushing juke music, don't miss out as they take Australia by storm again in 2017.
