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 The Best Albums Of 2016

    OK, I’m not even going to try and rationalise this surrender to a ‘best of’ listicle. Still…maybe there is an argument for making some semblance of narrative order out of a year that brought us Trump, Brexit and the deaths of Prince, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen and Alan Vega, who I missed just as much as the Big Three. So without further ado….oh, but first a word from the sponsor More>>
