Thirty million streams, a national sold out tour and a debut London show that sold out two months in advance – it was, truly, a monumental twelve months.
Today, Thelma announces her national Homecoming Queen tour this May, June and July. Tickets go on sale this Friday 21st February. The tour announce, follows Thelma’s recent inclusion in the 2020 Splendour in the Grass line up.
Thelma says “The last year has been pretty crazy for me since people started to hear Better in Blak, both the song and the album, and it’s been amazing to have the stories which were inside my head resonate with so many people. It’s given me the opportunity to do some travelling and touring overseas, but it wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t celebrate where we are going, but more importantly where we have been, I cannot wait to return and take my little band family and the wonderful Kira Puru on the road for the “Homecoming Queen Tour”
