DAN SULTAN | ‘Blackbird’ tour announced

dan tourThe Blackbird tour will see Dan Sultan touring for close to two months, visiting every state in the country including capital cities and smaller, regional towns. Sultan will be backed by a full band at all shows, with gig-goers in capital cities treated to a little extra glitz from a big-band set-up.

The past few months have seen the award-winning Melbourne artist deliver smouldering live performances – both in support of Bruce Springsteen and on his own ‘Under Your Skin’ headline dates.

Sultan’s new album is the culmination of many months of writing and recording, and sees powerhouse riffs met by crackling gospel interludes, old-school rock and roll jams, pure country tones, bare and aching ballads, harmonies, horns, banjos – even an Arabic scale or two. Blackbird is the simple journey of a man singing about love, desire and identity – an Australian musician coming into his own.

Sultan is awash with nervous anticipation for the release. “It was very daunting thinking about writing a new record as it had been so long since Get Out While You Can, but it was a relief to finally be writing again. And then it was just as daunting thinking about recording a new record but then a real relief to be doing so.”

“And then it was also daunting thinking about a new album actually coming out but now it’s very satisfying that it’s in the bag and ready to go! It has taken a lot to finally get to this point and now I’m looking forward to getting on the road and touring it.”

With support from Stonefield and Way Of The Eagle (DJ set)
