This July, Sydney guitar-wizard Plini is set to return to the stage to celebrate the release of his latest album, Impulse Voices. After a year of show postponements and cancellations, Plini and his band of musical superheroes (Chris Allison, Jake Howsam Lowe and Simon Grove) are thrilled to reunite on stage, performing new songs, old songs and all the notes in between.
"It was definitely a little strange releasing a new album without being able to celebrate it with live shows, but being able to announce these three (and hopefully more soon) has me and my band over the moon! Going to be practising like crazy, putting together a new setlist... I'm even a little excited just to coil cables after the shows. See you all soon!" says Plini.
To ensure a truly memorable evening, all three shows of this east coast run will be supported by the inimitable Stephen Taranto and his band, playing music from his critically-acclaimed EP Permanence for the first time ever.
Plini and Stephen will also host a music masterclass / Q&A session before each show – an opportunity to ask about their approaches to playing, writing, creativity, music business and more.

Plini's critically-acclaimed debut album Handmade Cities was voted #5 in Guitar World Magazine’s “20 best guitar albums of the decade,” and hailed by Steve Vai as “one of the finest, forward thinking, melodic, rhythmically and harmonically deep, evolution of rock/metal instrumental guitar records I have ever heard.”
Routinely mentioned in “best guitarist” lists, Plini was named #4 in the “Top 10 best prog guitarists in the world today” by Music Radar in early 2020.
Over the last few years, Plini has toured the world supporting bands like Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Tesseract and Intervals, as well as playing festivals and headlining his own tours all over North America, Europe, Australia, Asia and India. In 2018, Plini was the first instrumental act ever to play the legendary Download Festival in the UK so we reckon prog fans should get themselves to a show.
