Damien Leith is about to deliver a new album of originals and Wilbury covers, and he announces the Now & Then tour.
Capitalising on the surprise success of his Roy Orbison tribute album, Leith’s new album Now & Then delivers a mix of originals and covers of tunes from The Traveling Wilburys, together and individually, including ‘(I’ve Got My Mind) Set On You’, ‘End Of The Line’, and ‘Won’t Back Down’.
Now & Then will hit stores this Friday, and in turn fans will get to see Leith perform new tunes, and his Orbison interpretations, on a national tour in September.
The former Idol will be hitting all points, including Hobart, Launceston, and Wangaratta. Tickets go on sale for “members” this Wednesday 18 April and for the general public on Friday 20 April from the venues, Ticketek for Melbourne and Ticketmaster for Sydney.
