BLACK SORROWS ANNOUNCE SINGLE, ALBUM & INTERNATIONAL TOUR

Posted in Blog    //    Post Date - September 13, 2018


ARIA Hall Of Famer and Australian music luminary Joe Camilleri has just announced The Black Sorrows’ 21st album for release in 2019, Citizen John.

Citizen John sits comfortably alongside The Black Sorrows finest work including Harley And Rose, Hold On To Me and Dear Children, and will be released by the new Mushroom label Bloodlines early next year. And although the finishing touches are still being applied to the new album, The Black Sorrows are happy to reveal an appetizer in the form of this first single and underrated Bob Dylan penned pop gem ‘Silvio’.

The new album will showcase The Black Sorrows sophisticated brand of soul and blues, and will be followed later in 2019 by the Bloodlines re-issue of all of The Black Sorrows’ vast catalogue of albums.

Citizen John comes almost 35 years after Joe Camilleri started The Black Sorrows one Sunday afternoon at Melbourne’s Café Neon. Yet even with the massive successes enjoyed by The Black Sorrows over the four decades since, Joe has remained fiercely independent, saying recently:

“I’m not a perfect fit with the music industry. I call it art, they call it product. I just like making music. But Bloodlines is a great home for my music. It’s nice to be back working with Michael (Gudinski) & Warren (Costello) as they are genuine music fans.”

The ARIA Award winning band are also one of Australia’s most-loved, having sold more than a million albums and continuing to do in excess of 150 live performances shows each and every year.

The Black Sorrows are currently in Europe playing 18 shows in Germany (one of their biggest international markets) and immediately upon their return will undertake some Australian headline shows and music festivals.

To set the tone for 2019, The Black Sorrows have been announced as one of the feature artists at the 30th Byron Bay Bluesfest and back to Europe touring April/May 2019 in what will be yet another landmark year of touring for the band.

Citizen John is Joe’s 49th career album and would you believe the first since he celebrated his 70th birthday. But these are just numbers to Joe, who remains ageless. And his music is timeless.

LEE KERNAGHAN ANNOUNCES FINAL 2018 25th ANNIVERSARY DATES

Posted in Blog    //    Post Date - September 13, 2018


Lee Kernaghan has announced the final dates for 2018 on his massive 25th anniversary Boys From The Bush tour. With a string of dates in November and December, Lee brings to a close an incredible almost two-years celebrating his seminal Outback Club album. It’s hard to believe this enigmatic country musician has been out on the road for more than 25 years. For fans of his music, it is no surprise Lee Kernaghan just keeps getting better and better. He is always working on new material, tours rigorously and puts incredible energy into each show.

When Lee announced his 25th Anniversary Tour last year, the plan was to kick off at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January and tour the country until the end of 2017. The tour was massive, selling out date after date, and the audience feedback was overwhelming – they wanted more! It sold out an incredible 29 out of 32 shows – a fitting result for a 25th anniversary – and culminated in two huge concerts at The Palms at Crown in Melbourne in November.

At the end of the tour, the demand was clear – the tour needed to be extended, reaching out to areas that missed out in 2017. When Lee announced the Boys From The Bush tour was rolling into 2018, tickets immediately started to fly out the door, and the shows so far in 2018 have followed suit – selling out to audiences around the country.

Lee can’t wait to continue the celebration of his auspicious anniversary with his legion of fans. “It’s an amazing experience being on stage singing songs like Boys From The Bush, Hat Town, Flying With The King, Australian Boy and The Outback Club,” he says. “So many of those songs are not just about me, they’re about us, our people, our country, and our way of life – that’s what inspires me the most. I am really happy about being able to continue the party to areas we could not get to last year.”
The Boys From The Bush tour features Lee’s classic hits, ballads and rural anthems that have won the country legend a nationwide legion of fans that he prefers to call ‘mates’. With 38 number one hits to his credit, the show celebrates Lee’s career, and even more than that – it celebrates the fans who have been there from the beginning – and those who have joined in along the way.

Lee Kernaghan’s Boys From The Bush 25th Anniversary Tour is an unforgettable experience and a part of Australian music history! Book your tickets early and join the celebration of the epic career of one of this country’s all-time greats.
Tickets to the final 2018 tour dates on the Boys From the Bush – 25th Anniversary Tour are on sale now.
