Paul Kelly Announces 2017 Australia/New Zealand Tour

Paul Kelly Announces 2017 Australia/New Zealand Tour

Paul Kelly will tour Australia and New Zealand at the end of the year off the back of his latest, ARIA chart-topping album, Life is Fine.

The perennially popular singer-songwriter will embark on a 16-date tour of cities and regional centres across Australia and New Zealand throughout November and the beginning of December. Kicking off at the Darwin Entertainment Centre on Saturday, November 4, Kelly will make his way through 12 more Australian venues, and finish up with performances in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland. In Adelaide, Kelly will perform at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre Theatre on Wednesday, November 22.


A range of special guests will join Kelly as he plays his way across both countries, with Busby Marou joining the tour for Darwin, Cairns, Townsville and all New Zealand cities, Sahara Beck playing in Rockhampton, Steve Earle & Middle Kids joining from Brisbane to Perth, and The Eastern playing all NZ shows.

The tour comes after the release of Kelly’s 23rd studio album, Life is Fine, which has given him his first ever number one album on the ARIA charts. Linda and Vika Bull feature on the release, which Kelly has described as a more conventional pop-rock album than his most recent releases, and reminiscent of his work throughout the 80s.
