Having just released their fifth album, Medicine Man (you can read Tone Deaf’s positive verdict right here), funk-soul extraordinaries, The Bamboos have announced the dates for their national tour; and the first show first show in Melbourne at The Corner has now sold out.

Anticipation for Medicine Man is at fever pitch with glowing reviews rolling in for their release, with the rumour mill surrounding the mystery guests of their collaborative heavy album appearing on tour heating up. All other shows are bound to be at capacity in no time.

Crafted by bandleader Lance Ferguson alongside a who’s-who of international and Australian music icons like Tim Rogers, Megan Washington, Mark Ronson collaborator Daniel Merriweather and Bamboos’ fave Kylie Auldist, Medicine Man also enlists the help of US soul-man Aloe Blacc, Bobby Flynn and the band’s newest member, Ella Thompson.

The first single ‘I Got Burned’ featuring Tim Rogers has had massive radio support this year with high rotation on Triple J and even receiving
additions on commercial radio, all which resulted with it debuting at #19 on the ARIA Australian Singles Chart.

On the road the band will heavily feature the new LP as well as dipping in to past faves from previous albums 4, Step It Up, Rawville and Side Stepper. So be sure you don’t miss The Bamboos on their biggest tour yet.
