Ben Lee Announces October Tour

With three sold-out East Coast shows to kick off the long weekend and new album Love is the Great Rebellion just released, Ben Lee has announced he’ll be heading around the country on a much larger tour in October.

The US-based singer/songwriter will hit up metro and regional venues on his eight-date run, beginning in Brisbane on October 3.

Led by the single ‘Big Love’, Love is the Great Rebellion is a family affair for Lee: his wife Ione Skye makes an appearance, as does his five-year-old daughter Goldie and father-in-law, ‘60s folk icon Donovan.

It also reunites him with US producer Brad Wood, who worked with Lee on his double-platinum selling Awake is the New Sleep.

Frontier Members pre-sale runs from midday AEST on Tuesday 9 June until midday AEST Wednesday 10 June. General public tickets go on sale 10am local time on Friday 12 June.
