What: Bliss N Eso Circus Under the Stars tour
When: Saturday, May 10 at 5pm
Where: Ballarat Showgrounds
AS PART of Bliss N Eso's latest national tour, the three-piece is going back to its roots.
"When we first started the touring circuit we did places like Lismore and Wagga Wagga and Alice Springs but it seemed that over the years we stopped getting too regional and did a lot more of the big cities," the act's MC Eso said.
"I remember going to those places and the feedback would be amazing. These towns are so hungry and thirsty for any talent to come through.
"This tour is about getting back to the people."
Currently on their biggest tour to date, Bliss N Eso are touring across 15 locations in support of their number one ARIA album Circus in the Sky.
The tour, titled Circus Under The Stars, is set to be exactly that - an outdoor circus-like experience complete with truckloads of state-of-the-art production and staging equipment.
"You can't box us in, so why should the live show be boxed in," Eso said.
"It's not just a DJ and two MCs anymore either. We have a full band with us this time along as well as Ceekay Jones and dead-set legends Horrorshow and Seth Sentry.
"It's exciting to be able to have those acts on the bill."
Circus in the Sky was the eighth best-selling Australian release last year, spawning a never-ending list of hits including House of Dreams, Can't Get Rid of This Feeling, Act Your Age and My Life.
"We hope to somehow change the view of the listener in this world to be a more positive, colourful one. We know the power of music and we just wanted to be immersed in it."MC Eso
The current tour will present fans with a chance to hear many of the album's songs live for the first time alongside Bliss N Eso's extensive back catalogue.
Eso said he hoped Bliss N Eso's music gave fans an opportunity to see the world in a brighter light.
"The power of music - it can change the mind. It can help you," Eso said.
