Off the back of an enormous year for the young artist including the release of her debut album Sugar Mountain to widespread critical acclaim, countless sold out shows and three ARIA nominations to name but a few milestones, I OH YOU are today pleased to present Jack River’s Sugar Mountain Ball, touring Australian theatres this May and June in the biggest rooms Jack River has headlined.
Jack River explains, “To complete the Sugar Mountain dream I am coming out to theatres to have the prom night we all never had. I made this album to be a grand and brilliant sparkly ballroom where you pour your whole heart out on the dancefloor to heal and cry and become strong. This tour will be the realisation of that ballroom where everything will shine and melt and taste like sugar.”
Presented by and announced via triple j, the Sugar Mountain Ball will transform venues across the country into real life ballrooms reminiscent of 90’s proms past. The tour will begin at Brisbane’s Tivoli on Friday 31 May taking in Melbourne’s Forum Theatre, Sydney’s Enmore Theatre, Fremantle’s Metropolis and finish up at Adelaide’s The Governor Hindmarsh on Friday 14 June.

Joining Jack River for the ride are Brisbane pop princess Eves Karydas who’s most recent tracks include 'Further Than The Planes Fly', ‘Wildest Ones' and ‘Couch’ who will be the main support on all shows except Fremantle. Young WA up-and-coming hip-hop artist Arno Faraji will treat Fremantle fans tohis self-proclaimed “vibe music”. Opening proceedings across all shows, Gold Coast local San Mei, who’s guitar-heavy, delay-ridden, dreamy pop can be heard on tracks ‘Wonder’, ‘Heaven’ and ‘Two Planets’.
“Eves Karydas, San Mei & Arno Faraji are three of the most incredible artists in Australia right now,” explains Jack River, “I have on repeat everyday. These artists are bold and individual in their feats to create their own brand of alt pop music - it’s going to be an honour to share the stage with them.”
