Bliss n Eso announce Flying Colours 15th Anniversary headline tour for October 2023

Illusive Presents and Frontier Touring are excited to bring legendary Australian hip-hop trio Bliss n Eso back to the stage in 2023 with their Flying Colours 15th Anniversary Tour this October.

Celebrating 15 years of their iconic, ARIA Award winning, Platinum certified, top 10 Flying Colours album, the trio have had an illustrious career.  Considered Australian hip-hop legends, with three No.1 albums and an extensive sweep of ARIA-certified Platinum and Gold singles, Bliss N Eso have truly earned their star status.

“Honestly, this album was such game changer for us and we’re so pumped to be hitting the road to celebrate its 15th anniversary with all our beloved fans.  We are blessed to have had such an amazing career that is still as strong as ever and Flying Colours was truely such a pivotal point in our trajectory.  Even when I play it today I can really hear that monumental shift in our sound and growth as artists. It’s rare these days that a body of work stands the test of time and still means so much to so many people.  Even more than winning our first ARIA award with this album, it was the deep connection with our fans this album created that really spawned the fanbase we have today and that’s what means the most.  There’s so many bangers on this record that are constantly requested but we rarely get to play live, so to break these bad boys out for the first time in years and let em rip all together is going to be INSANE.  And of course to finally release this truly special album on vinyl for the FIRST TIME EVER is just the icing on the cake!” – Jonathan (MC Bliss of Bliss n Eso)  

Following a huge 2022 touring up and down the country on not one but two Australian tours – The Sun Tour & Wheel Of Tunes Tour – Bliss n Eso will take on six huge new dates kicking off on Friday 6 October at Metropolis Fremantle, then heading to Adelaide on Saturday 7 October for a show at Hindley Street Music Hall, onto Melbourne’s 170 Russell on Friday 13 October, Hobart’s Uni Bar on Saturday 14 October, Sydney’s Metro Theatre on Friday 20 October before heading to The Tivoli in Brisbane for their final show of the tour on Saturday 21 October.

Frontier Members presale commences Tuesday 18 July from 10am local before the general public on sale kicks off Thursday 20 July from 10am local.   Tickets via frontiertouring.com/blissneso 

To celebrate 15 years after their career defining album, the upcoming Flying Colours 15th Anniversary Tour symbolises the moment everything changed for Bliss N Eso and this is a chance for them to thank their fans!   Bliss n Eso will be performing the ARIA Award winning Platinum certified top 10 Flying Colours album in its entirety, which includes the hit singles ‘Woodstock 2008’, ‘Bullet and a Target’, ARIA Platinum ‘The Sea is Rising’ and ARIA Gold ‘Eye of the Storm’ plus performances of their biggest catalogue hits with a few surprises in store!
