This tour is hot on the heels of the release of Quiet Heart: The Best Of The Go-Betweens, curated by Forster and fellow members Lindy Morrison, Amanda Brown and Robert Vickers.

Of course, Forster was half of the shining songwriting partnership with Grant McLennan, but his four solo albums have received rapturous critical acclaim in turn.

The solo shows will span his influential career with the Go-Betweens, as well as his solo work and select covers.

All tickets are available from the venues.

Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 October – Visy Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse
Friday 26 October – Thornbury Theatre, Melbourne
Saturday 27 October – Theatre Royal, Castlemaine
Sunday 28 October – Caravan Music Club, Melbourne
