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

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
