Archie Roach Will Tour Australia For The Last Time

in News

Archie Roach will head out on his final Australian tour in May.

Archie has suffered health issues in recent years. He has had a stroke and has been treated for lung cancer. One last tour his way to say goodbye.

In a statement Archie said, “Releasing my debut album, Charcoal Lane back in 1990, was the most amazing experience in my life. I never imagined that I would be here three decades later still recording and singing on stages in Australia and the world. Music has kept me going, kept me alive. It’s something that I have come to love, especially the relationship I have with those who come to my shows. I am also most grateful to all the people that I have worked with through the years.”

Archie Roach will perform with a five-piece live band with award-winning jazz composer and improviser Paul Grabowsky, and special guest vocalist Emma Donovan.
