Lucinda Williams’ upcoming Australian tour has just gotten bigger, with new dates added in Victoria and Tasmania.
With the legendary US singer/songwriter’s first Melbourne show at the Forum on Monday 7 December now sold out, Williams will follow it with a performance at the Prince Bandroom on Tuesday 8 December – her first gig at the venue since her 1993 Sweet Old Tour.
The news is also good for Tasmanian fans, who get an all-ages show at Hobart’s Odeon Theatre on Thursday 10 December. Tickets for both new shows go on sale 10am local time on Wednesday 30 September.
Williams – America’s best songwriter, according to Time magazine – is heading to Australia on the back of her acclaimed double album of last year, Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone. Last week it beat the latest releases from the likes of Sturgill Simpson and Shakey Graves at the 16th annual Americana Music Festival to be named Album of the Year.
As well as her headline shows, Williams will also perform series of concerts for a day on the green, on a bill that also includes Paul Kelly’s Merri Soul Sessions, Kasey Chambers and Marlon Williams.
