Shot For Sneakers: Tourist
Last time William Phillips AKA TOURIST came to Australia, he announced at his debut Sydney show that it was his biggest headline show to date. That was in 2016 at the Oxford Art Factory. Almost three years later in 2019, Tourist returned to Australia equipped with his second record, Everyday.
He returned for a few festival dates performing at Pitch Music & Arts Festival and Days Like This and in a fitting continuation, he played a few headline shows, including a sold out Sydney date at the Oxford Art Factory.
After sound check before the show last week, our pal James Simpson caught up with Tourist to take some snaps. Check those out below!
