Vera Blue — The Way That You Love Me Tour

Magnums Hotel | October 13 | 6pm

As she continues making her mark on the live stage, Vera Blue has delighted fans with the announcement of her 13-date The Way That You Love Me tour, returning the artist to some of her favourite places in Australia as well as taking her to new regions never visited before.

To add to the excitement, Vera Blue has teased new music from her forthcoming new album. The 41-second clip posted on Facebook, is taken from her next single, The Way That You Love Me, which is expected to drop in the coming weeks.

Vera Blue said of her upcoming tour, “I’m super excited to be coming to regional towns and venues that I haven’t been to before, as well as a couple of my favourite cities. Pumped to be bringing a new show featuring a few songs I’ve been working on recently. Thrilled to be bringing my good friend Alex The Astronaut on tour as well, will be good vibes with our tour fam.“
