Patti Smith says she had ever intent of her last Australian tour being her last Australian tour ever but she had too good a time and so she is coming back.

Patti’s 2017 Australian tour was a sell-out. At 70- she thought that was it. In 2020 at age 73 Sydney and Melbourne in Australia and Christchurch and Auckland in New Zealand will be treated to encore performances.

‘I’d like to do it all over again. I’m ready if you are!” How could we refuse?”, Patti said in a statement. “I really didn’t expect to be coming back, but it was just such a great trip. I really thought that I wouldn’t be able to come back – so I’m delighted that I was wrong”.
