The phenomenal Em Rusciano has just had two shows added to The Rage & Rainbows Tour, with her Sydney State Theatre and Melbourne Hamer Hall shows’ pre-sale allocation exhausted just hours after going on sale.

Frontier Comedy is thrilled to see Em now perform two shows at Melbourne’s premier music venue Hamer Hall on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 July, and add a show at Sydney’s iconic Enmore Theatre on Sunday 11 August to accompany her State Theatre performance on Saturday 10 August. Em’s shows at Hobart’s Federation Concert Hall on Wednesday 24 July, The Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide on Friday 26 July, Riverside Theatre at PCEC Perth on Saturday 27 July and Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on Friday 2 August are also all selling fast, so jumping in when the general public goes on sale at 1pm today (Wednesday 8 May) is strongly advised!

Em’s highly anticipated new live experience (let’s face it, an Em Rusciano show is not just a show) is an unprecedented Australian theatre tour for the comedian, singer, writer and broadcaster. With an impressive career trajectory that has launched her from finalist and audience favourite in a hugely popular national talent show to hosting brekky radio and selling out theatres around Australia, the glitter cyclone embodied by Em Rusciano continues to take no prisoners and tell no lies. And she’s once again doing it with her Dad, Vincie, playing in her band.

This past year Em had a baby, turned 40, left a high profile job and had a combined 45 minutes sleep. There’s been next-level rage. There’s also been love. There’s been day drinking and breastfeeding… no, not at the same time.

With The Rage and Rainbows Tour, Em is finally giving voice to that gnawing rage we all try to hide. She’s unleashing the rage, dunking it in white wine, rolling it in glitter, and giving it an eight-piece back-up band and four costume changes. She’s also going to tell you what you can do with it to send it on its way.

With sell-out shows around Australia for the past five years consecutively, a best-selling memoir, award-winning audiobook and two top 10 singles, Em is one of Australia’s most prolific performers — and let’s not forget she’s done all of the above and more while raising a young family. With a Facebook following of 275,000 fans, 32,000 on Twitter and 180,000 on Instagram, Em’s social media community is fierce, loud and passionately loyal.

Em has teamed up with MSquared Productions, Australia’s 2019 Eurovision representative, the ridiculously talented Kate Miller-Heidke, and her partner Keir Nuttall to write original, fabulous songs especially for The Rage and Rainbows Tour. The songs are available here, and learning all the words so that we can have a knee-trembling singalong is strongly encouraged. As Em puts it,

“Now, listen here: I want you to learn them before the show. Study them. Press play/pause on your stereo and write out the lyrics while lying on your bed with a lollipop, like the good ol’ days. I want you to be able to sing along with me, lighter in the air, hand on your heart.”

The Rage and Rainbows Tour is more than a show. It’s a festival for anyone who’s felt fed-up, furious, exhausted, demoralised… but still maintained a passion for sequins.

Don’t miss the unstoppable force of female empowerment, nurturing motherhood and sheer moxie that is Em Rusciano as she scatters truthbombs, rage and rainbows to theatres across Australia in her most epic show yet. As proven by the extraordinary pre-sale performance, this tour WILL sell out – book early!
