Review: RÜFÜS DU SOL's SOLACE Tour
Following the release of the blockbuster album, SOLACE, RÜFÜS DU SOL brought their live show to Brisbane’s Riverstage last night.
The night began with warm-up sets from Brisbane duo Lastlings and Cassian, who both are seeing well-deserved praise as of late, and have recently been signed to RÜFÜS DU SOL‘s own label, Rose Avenue Labels.
“Unmissable” is a word you’ll see in a lot of reviews, but RÜFÜS DU SOL’s SOLACE show was genuinely that. If you just happen to be looking for a sneaky last-minute Sunday plan, tickets are still available to the second show at Riverstage tonight, which also happens to be the last of the Australian SOLACE Tour.The tour’s namesake album followed the trio’s previous two platinum-certified albums ATLAS and Bloom.
Alongside their best-selling releases, it’s performances like these that show how RÜFÜS DU SOL earned their spot on the lineups of Coachella and Exit, and tour internationally over the past two years.
In following with Riverstage tradition, punters were drenched halfway through the show, but it was by no means dampened. RÜFÜS DU SOL‘s high energy performance along with their authentic connection with a sold out audience. From moments like ‘Treat You Better’ bringing concert-goers to a kind of emotional euphoria, to the technicolour performance of ‘You Were Right’, it was clear to see that RÜFÜS DU SOL take pride in delivering a stellar performance.
With each member of the trio elevated on their own podium, a mesmerising lights show, and of course, show-closing confetti, the event saw an impressive level of production and an equally impressive level of finesse from the band.
If RÜFÜS DU SOL performed to the same calibre on each night of this tour, they deserve a massive congratulations. With hardly a hair out of place, or a beat out of time, the trio’s performance was equal parts effortless and entertaining.
