Paul Kelly Life is Fine Tour 2017

Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce one of Australia’s most loved and respected artists, Paul Kelly, will embark on a colossal national tour this November and December. In celebration of the release of his ARIA #1 debut 'Life Is Fine' (out now through EMI), Kelly will tour Australia, visiting both regional and metro cities before heading to New Zealand for three performances.

Kelly’s recently released 23rd studio album 'Life Is Fine' shows he hasn’t lost touch and remains in firm command of his craft. The 10 time ARIA award winner has achieved his first ever number one album after almost 40 years as a recording artist.

One of the reasons behind Kelly’s enduring power as a songwriter is his continual drive to break old habits and refresh his creativity. In 'Life Is Fine' there are songs with an R&B groove like the sizzling opener, ‘Rising Moon’, jumping rockers like ‘Firewood and Candles’ and ‘Rock Out on the Sea’ and fun songs like ‘Leah: The Sequel’. The humorous tunes contrast with another of Kelly’s exquisite songs of regret, ‘Letters in the Rain’, and the rich imagery at the heart of ‘Petrichor’.

“There's a frequent wit to these songs, and an even greater sense of humanity, as Kelly captures the details of human nature with a master's touch, not to mention a fluid and effective melodic sense". – AllMusic

"Some of his best songs in years" – The Guardian

Joining Kelly on his Darwin, Cairns and Townsville shows are Rockhampton duo Busby Marou. Recognised for their delightful harmonies blending with melodic, acoustic tunes and heartfelt lyrics, the band won the APRA Award for Blues & Roots Work of the Year for 2012 hit ‘Biding My Time’.

Don’t miss your chance to see Australia’s foremost singer-songwriters, Paul Kelly, in concert this November.

With special guests Busby Marou
