There are fewer more pleasing sights in the live music world than a rock act totally on form. And for Victorian lad Dan Sultan, he couldn’t presently be more on point at the moment: his third long-player Blackbird is universally lauded, has given him a swag of awards and, just last month, notched over to ‘gold’ status in the sales sheets. More than all of that, however, is the confidence all of this has brought the charismatic singer. And it spills out in abundance in his stage shows of late.
The 2015 Melbourne Zoo Twilight Series is off to an incredible start. After announcing a sell out, and then second show for Paul Kelly Presents The Merri Soul Sessions featuring Clairy Browne, Kira Puru, & Vika and Linda Bull we can now announce that Bernard Fanning’s show has officially SOLD OUT. Audiences rushed to snag tickets to this commended acoustic guitarist and legendary lyricist with his live band in one of summer’s most beautiful venues – a dusk evening surrounded by dazzling wildlife, set in the heart of Melbourne.
