Vika & Linda
Together, their voices are one of Australian music’s most emotionally charged and critically acclaimed sounds. With their soulful and stunning vocals right at the fore, Frontier Touring is thrilled to announce iconic Melbourne duo Vika & Linda will take to ornate theatres in Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney for four intimate headline shows.
‘Our new album The Wait has been a long time in the making and we are looking forward to bringing our whole band to play it for you in beautiful theatres across the country. We can’t wait to see your lovely faces in August – we’ve missed you all.’ – Vika & Linda
With their goosebump-raising harmonies and a full band behind them, the tour will be a celebration of the Bull sisters’ recent news – their first album of original material in 19 years. New album The Wait was released on Friday 17 September 2021 via label Bloodlines (pre-order the album here). To celebrate the news, the beloved siblings recently dropped not one, but two stunning lead singles: ‘Raise Your Hand’ and ‘My Heart Is In The Wrong Place’.
Vika & Linda had one of their busiest years in 2020, releasing two highly successful albums: anthology ‘Akilotoa (which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album charts), and the lockdown inspired Sunday (The Gospel According To Iso), which debuted at #2.
Now, they’re gearing up for The Wait – a rousing collection of 12 tracks showcasing Vika & Linda’s legendary, effervescent performances. Songwriting credits for The Wait read like a who’s who of Aussie music royalty: Don Walker, Glenn Richards, Chris Cheney, Bernard Fanning, Kasey Chambers & Brandon Dodd, Ben Salter, Paul Kelly, Neil Murray & Matt Walker, Mick Thomas & Jemma Rowlands, and emerging talent Eva Seymour.
Moving easily from the stage to the studio, over the past three decades Vika & Linda have forged their own path, earning Platinum album sales and a huge live fanbase with each release. With a sound that defies genre classification, the sisters’ do it all: rock, country, gospel, reggae, R&B, soul and blues, as well as paying tribute to their rich Tongan heritage.
