I saw Rufus Du Sol for the first time in Orange County, CA back in 2017 when the trio first announced at the show they will be making the move from Australia to their new home in Los Angeles. The show was small and intimate with a small light production but nothing more was needed for the group to electrify the room with back to back hits from their recently released at the time Bloom album. The Move to the US provided the group with a massive new audience to tap into as they were busy preparing a little album called Solace.
Solace’s release marked a new chapter for Rufus Du Sol . With a grammy nomination under their belt and a wave of new fans, the group quickly jumped at the opportunity to take their show to new levels. I had the opportunity to see the trio again in Los Angeles where they played three back to back nights at the iconic Shrine Expo Hall. It was obvious that the group took the production of their show seriously and wanted to deliver something special to their fans. With a multi-layer stage design highlighting both a visual experience of their performance.
Now five years have gone by since I first saw Rufus Du Sol and I’ve made the move to Austin, TX. Making the trip to the Germania Insurance Amphitheater to hear another amazing album titled Surrender in person. The group did not fail me as the production has been taken even higher delivering my favorite Rufus Du Sol show to date!
I couldn’t take my eyes off the stage as each member of the trio performs their part live in beautiful harmony. Lasers beamed down from the top of the stage surrounding each member and although there is a frontman vocalist in the group the show and production worked together in a team performance. Ear protection is a must at every show and festival and I always double-check to have mine when attending a show. I enjoyed the sound quality of the performance so much that I actually took my earplugs out to enjoy the full sound of the performance. I left this set feeling satisfied and excited for the group’s next project.
