In sad news today, Memphis songwriter Julien Baker has had to cancel the remaining dates of her 2019 tour – which included 8 dates in Australia this month. Julien’s management have said..
“Due to unforeseen personal matters that have arisen, Julien Baker will be cancelling the remainder of her February tour in Japan, New Zealand, and Australia. We extend our deepest apologies to those who have helped to arrange these shows or planned to attend and thank you for your understanding. Ticket refunds will be available at the point of purchase.”
Internationally acclaimed singer songwriter Julien Baker has just announced a run of dates that will see her phenomenal live show return to Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Byron Bay and Melbourne in 2019. This will be Baker’s third visit down under after a wowing Australian audiences with her sparse and devastating ballads at sold out shows in both 2016 and 2017.
This tour will be the first since the release of Baker’s exceptional sophomore album Turn Out The Lights and marks the first time audiences can hear the record live. Turn Out The Lights is more expansive in sound and vision than its predecessor (2015’s landmark debut Sprained Ankle) but has the same breathtaking vulnerability and resilience. Come February next year, fans will get to hear their favourite cuts from both.
Joining Julien as special guest for these shows is Sydney breakout star Gordi who will be performing songs from her sensational 2017 debut Reservoir – an album recorded across Wisconsin, Reykjavik, Los Angeles, New York and Sydney in between a six year medicine degree and international touring. The Guardian called Reservoir “breezy wintry melancholy at its finest”.
