Live Nation and Bluesfest Touring to present Jackson Browne’s first visit to Australia and New Zealand since 2009.
Jackson Browne has written and performed some of the most literate and moving songs in popular music and has defined a genre of songwriting charged with honesty, emotion and personal politics.
In a career spanning over 45 years, he has released nineteen albums: 11 Top 40, 4 platinum, 3 multi-platinum, & 2 Gold. 1977’s Running on Empty is 7 times platinum.
His new studio album, Standing In The Breach, is a collection of ten songs, at turns deeply personal and political, exploring love, hope, and defiance in the face of the advancing uncertainties of modern life.
Beyond his music, Browne is known for his advocacy on behalf of the environment, human rights, and arts education. He was inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2007, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 by Bruce Springsteen, who said to Browne of The Eagles “You wrote the songs they wished they had written”.
Joining Jackson Browne are his longtime band mates Bob Glaub (bass), Mauricio Lewak (drums), Jeff Young (organ, piano), Alethea Mills (vocals) with the addition of Greg Leisz (guitar, lap steep, pedal steel), and Shane Fontayne (guitars).
