Billy Bragg To Play One Show Only In Sydney

Singer songwriter Billy Bragg will perform one show in Sydney in September.

Bragg is heading to Australia next month to be the keynote speaker for the BIGSOUND music conference in Brisbane. This Sydney show will be his only Australian live performance while he is in Australia.

Bragg’s most recent album is the Joe Henry produced ‘Tooth & Nail’ which came after five years of studio inactivity. “I didn’t tell anyone I was in the studio,” says BRAGG, who took up the casual offer of Grammy-winning producer Joe Henry to record in his Pasadena basement. “Don’t even bring your guitar,” Henry told BRAGG, “just some songs and a change of underwear.”

Bragg says ‘Tooth & Nail’ is the rightful successor to ‘Mermaid Avenue’. He calls it “the Mermaid Avenue I never made”.

Billy Bragg with special guest Patrick James will perform for Viv Lees Presents on Friday, September 13 at the Factory Theatre, Sydney.
