Chris Isaak Is Coming Back To Australia for the First Time Since 2016

Chris Isaak will return to Australia in April for his first shows since 2016.

For Chris, this is the longest gap he has ever had between Australian tours. He has been here on 12 visits. Chris has toured Australia previously in 2013, 2011, 2009, 2006, 2004, 2002, 1999, 1998, 1996 and 1995. He also performed at the AFL Grand Final in 2015.

Australia has been Chris’ most successful market. Since 1993, Australia has given him his highest charting albums with ‘San Francisco Days’ (no 20, 1993), ‘Forever Blue’ (no 2, 1995), ‘Baja Sessions’ (no 8, 1996), ‘Speak of the Devil’ (no 11, 1998), ‘Always Got Tonight’ (no 12, 2002), ‘Christmas’ (no 26, 2004), ‘Mr Lucky’ (no 11, 2009), ‘Beyond The Sun’ (no 3, 2011) and ‘First Comes The Night’ (no 2, 2015).

And it all started not with ‘Wicked Game’ but the single ‘Dancin’ which was only ever a hit in Australia in 1985.
