Icon of Australian music Judith Durham has announced her first solo tour in over a decade.
The press release dubs Durham “Australia’s Original Pop Princess” and after her 50 year musical journey solo and with The Seekers, to massive Australian and international success, we’ll have to agree.
Durham released solo album Colours Of My Life last year and the Colours Of My Life national solo tour will showcase five decades of music, including location-specific songs from her charity album The Australian Cities Suite and Seekers hits.
Judith said in the press release “Life is so full of surprises lately, and to be given this opportunity to sing live for all my beautiful Australian fans at this 50th anniversary milestone time in my life is a dream coming true. It has been on the horizon for 10 years since my last big tour here and I can’t wait to get out and say hello to everyone in song.”
Pre-sale tickets can be purchased from April 24, with a general release of tickets on Thursday 3 May from Ticketek, the Opera House, and Tickermaster for Hobart.
