PJ Harvey 2017 Australia and NZ Tour

PJ Harvey 2017 Australia and NZ Tour


Wednesday, 31 August- Billions Australia are pleased to announce that PJ Harvey is returning to Australasia in January with her full 10-piece band. Shows in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland, Wellington and Brisbane follow the release of the critically acclaimed album The Hope Six Demolition Project, which hit #1 in the UK album charts. These will be PJ Harvey’s first live dates in Australia and New Zealand since 2012, with a show that is receiving rave reviews from audiences in the US and across Europe.

Tickets will go on sale Thursday 1 September.

Review from the New York show
"Right from the first song, PJ Harvey's current live show is a tour de force of beautiful and savage artistry. Her latest album, The Hope Six Demolition Project, reads like an elegy for imperialism, its songs become a dramatic celebration of hope live...By the time the night was done the audience called for an encore, and when that was done, it screamed for another, chanting and clapping until well after Harvey's microphone was removed. The show is that good."
Kory Grow, ROLLING STONE

Howard Davis: Never Too Old To Rock & Roll - Jethro Tull

As Greil Marcus recently observed in an NYRB review of Robbie Robertson's autobiographical Testimony, in rock and roll there is always an origin story. In the case of Jethro Tull founder Ian Anderson, he claims to have been influenced by his father's big band and jazz record collections and the emergence of rock music in the 1950s, but became disenchanted with the "show biz" style of early US stars like Elvis Presley...
