RÜFÜS DU SOL announces 1-night show at the Gorge in October

In the latest of a slew of concert announcements as COVID-19 restrictions continue to ease around the country, RÜFÜS DU SOL has shocked the PNW with a Gorge show on October 1st.

Earlier this morning, the Australian trio posted a cryptic video of two locations from drone footage. The caption only included “October 9th,” leading many to (correctly) speculate an impending show. Although they didn’t include a caption, the keen eyes of PNW-ers quickly recognized the first shot as the Columbia River Gorge in central Washington.

As if that wasn’t enough to whip the whole region into a frenzy, RÜFÜS DU SOL was still seizing the day. Shortly after their first post, they returned with an official show poster confirming the details.

What we know so far:

After today, we know mostly everything barring a few details about the show. Presale tickets go live on Monday, February 28 for the October 1 show. If you miss out on the artist presale, the general sale will go online Wednesday, March 2. We don’t yet know the price of tickets.

It’s unclear exactly how camping at the Gorge will work for this event. But, it’s likely that the campgrounds will be open the night before (Friday), and the night of (Saturday) the show. More information specifically around camping will be clearer closer to the show date.

So far, it appears that one opener is slotted for the evening. The British producer, singer, and songwriter Fred again.. will be performing in support of RÜFÜS. Although he’s partially responsible for some of the biggest hits in pop music from Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding, he finally received mainstream recognition after releasing two albums across the last two years.

RÜFÜS DU SOL follows success of their fourth fell-length album

It’s no secret that the last few months have been good to RÜFÜS. In fall 2021, they released their highly-anticipated fourth full-length album, Surrender. No songs dip under 1.6 million plays on Spotify, with their highest previously-released single On My Knees topping a dizzying 21.6 million plays.

Since their album’s release, they’ve still remained fairly quiet on social media. RÜFÜS has played a handful of arena-sized shows in support of the album, and have several headlining festival slots to play over the summer.

Either way, it’s felt like a lifetime since the last time the PNW has been treated to a RÜFÜS show. Stay tuned for more information as we get closer to the show, and let us know if we’ll see you there!
