Legendary singer-songwriter Paul Kelly is grabbing his guitar, his band and hitting the road for a 24-date east coast tour.
Renowned for songs like How to make gravy, To her door and Dumb things, Kelly will stop by Anita's Theatre in Thirroul for a concert on August 5, as well as further down the coast at Merimbula the day before at Club Sapphire.
He is regarded as one of Australia's finest performers and songwriters, with a place in the ARIA Hall of Fame, 25 studio albums, multiple film soundtracks, and two live albums to his name.
His band also includes great names from Australian music like Vika and Linda Bull, Bill McDonald, Peter Luscombe, Ash Naylor and Cameron Bruce.
"We put our toe in the water with a one off New Year's Eve performance for TV but now we're really looking forward to stretching out and playing music night after night," Kelly said. "We want to see the whites of your eyes, you lovers of sound, joy and fury; we want to charge the air around us and change each other and send you home singing into the night".
In 2020, the musician released two albums - Forty Days (performed, recorded and posted via his socials from home in lockdown) and Please Leave Your Light On (featuring adaptions of Kelly's originals with pianist and composer Paul Grabowsky).
Frontier Touring members pre-sale are released Tuesday, May 18, from 12pm and general public tickets will be released on Thursday, May 20, 12pm.
