After an awe-inspiring reunion in 2018 following a lengthy hiatus, fans have eagerly awaited the opportunity to witness The Butterfly Effect’s electrifying live performance once again.

Armed with their debut self-titled EP in 2001, The Butterfly Effect quickly gained recognition as Triple M’s Unsigned Find of 2002. The release of Begins Here in 2003 led to their first European tour and catapulted the band to the pinnacle of the alternative rock scene. Their second album, Imago, achieved gold status in a mere 8 weeks after debuting at number 2 on the ARIA Albums charts in 2006. Subsequently, 2008’s Final Conversation of Kings continued their gold streak, debuting at number 3 and showcasing the band’s evolving, more progressive sound.

Following frontman Clint Boge’s departure in 2012, the band embarked on a well-documented ‘Farewell Tour,’ but fate had other plans. Reconnecting in 2017, The Butterfly Effect was welcomed back with open arms, evident from their sold-out reunion tour in March 2018. This iconic act refused to fade away, culminating in the release of IV in 2022, which debuted at an impressive #5 on the ARIA Album charts.

Tickets for this exhilarating tour will be highly sought after, as The Butterfly Effect has a proven track record of selling out shows in record time.
