Stella Donnelly - Beware of the Dogs national tour

This event has passed!



Debut album named one of the best albums of the year by NME, Rolling Stone (U.S). NPR, Paste, Flood, Consequence of Sound and more!

Fresh from a stand-out performance at Glastonbury (where she appeared with Billy Bragg), Stella Donnelly is delighted to announce a series of national headline dates in support of her debut album Beware of the Dogs, released in March this year.

Supported by triple j, the tour will take in venues across Melbourne, Fremantle, Adelaide, Hobart, Brisbane, Canberra, and Sydney, along with a number of regional towns including Castlemaine, Ballarat, Wollongong and others this September and October. Melbourne four-piece Jade Imagine will accompany Stella for all headline tour dates. In late September, Stella will also play acclaimed West Australian festival Wave Rock Weekender.

In March, Stella Donnelly shared Beware of the Dogs to mass critical acclaim. The release, which features her biting lead single ‘Old Man’ as well as ‘Tricks’ and the playful ‘Die’ was named feature album on triple j, Stereogum, RTRFM, SYN, Rabbit Radio and Radio Adelaide, among others. The 13-track collection has been lauded by The Australian, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Herald Sun and has also received praise across the globe from Rolling Stone, Noisey, Pitchfork, The Guardian and others.

Since the release, Donnelly has spent much of her time touring North America and Europe in support of the album with sold-out shows in London, New York and Los Angeles. Last month, she played three sold-out VIVID Live shows at the Sydney Opera House and joined American alt-pop star Maggie Rogers on her headline tour in Australia and New Zealand. She will play a series of European festivals this month before returning to Australia in September.

"There seemed little doubt that Stella Donnelly was worth the hype, but the richly rewarding Beware of the Dogs is a stunning debut from a deadly smart talent with plenty to say in songs worthy of your undivided attention." - triple j

"If Thrush Metal, her previous tape release, was brazenly political enough to earn Donnelly her fair share of admirers, Beware of the Dogs, its complex and nuanced companion piece, will be the linchpin that turns them into devotees." - Noisey

“Beware of the Dogs is a triumph on its own terms, going from high point to high point as she maps the pains, pleasures and anxieties of her personal patch of twentysomething bohemia.” - Rolling Stone

“Donnelly provides her listeners with songs to laugh with and rage to, driven by hooks with the power to make someone out there feel a little bit less alone.” - Stereogum
