Jack River announces Sugar Mountain Ball tour

Off the back of an absolutely huge 2018, Jack River has announced she'll bring her Sugar Mountain Ball to Australian stages this May and June.

Following the release of her debut album Sugar Mountain last year – as well as countless sold-out shows and three ARIA nominations – Jack River has announced she will be hitting the road again, this time undertaking what might be her most magical tour yet.

The Sugar Mountain Ball see Jack River perform in the biggest rooms she has ever headlined as she transports fans back to the ’90s. Venues across the country will become real-life ballrooms, reminiscent of prom nights we’ve only gotten to dream about thanks to our favourite rom-coms.

The tour’s concept has been something River has dreamt of for a long time. “To complete the Sugar Mountain dream I am coming out to theatres to have the prom night we all never had,” she says.

“I made this album to be a grand and brilliant sparkly ballroom where you pour your whole heart out on the dancefloor to heal and cry and become strong. This tour will be the realisation of that ballroom where everything will shine and melt and taste like sugar.”

The tour is going to be made even more special thanks to the top-notch artists filling the support slots. Brisbane pop princess Eves Karydas – who we’ve given the nod to as an artist to watch in 2019 – will bring her catchy tunes to the party, as will Gold Coast local San Mei whose dream-pop will open proceedings.

Make sure you’ve got your best prom outfit ready to go. “Meeting fans all around Australia over the past year has been unlike anything I ever imagined,” River says. “The experience of sharing my songs has given me magic fuel to dream bigger and brighter – this tour will be a celebration of that. I also encourage you all to dress like you’re coming to the prom of your dreams.”
