Billy Bragg has announced that he will be following up his whirlwind jaunt Down Under with a nationally encompassing run of headlining shows for March next year. Currently in town for BIGSOUND, Bragg has also confirmed a one-off Sydney showcase taking place this Friday, 13th September.
Bragg’s return next March will be in support of his current album Tooth & Nail and we should all be very grateful for this release as it has inspired Bragg to return Down Under with his full band in tow for the first time in 5 years. The album also sees Bragg revisit his penchant for heartache, pinning his heart back on his sleeve for a run of tracks that document the struggles of maintaining the relationships in our lives.
40 years into the game is a risky time to shake things up but Bragg has decided now is the time to reinvent himself; a move that has so far been met with thunderous applause. Of course, Bragg and co will also be delving deep into their back catalogue including Wilco collaboration and fan favourite Mermaid Avenue.
Tickets go on sale next Monday, 16th September at 9am local time.
