Birdy Announces Australian Tour April 2013

Written by Marc Zanotti on December 3, 2012

English singer/songwriter Birdy is headed to our way in April 2013 for her very first Australian tour. Birdy, real name Jasmine van den Bogaerde, made waves both at home and internationally with her 2011 self-titled debut album.

Comprised of almost entirely cover songs, Birdy’s take on Bon Iver’s Skinny Love went quadruple platinum in Australia, outperforming the original. The teenaged sensation’s debut album also reached the #1 spot on the ARIA charts. Birdy’s latest cover is What You Want, a 2004 tour single by Australia’s own John Butler Trio.

Passing through Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney, Birdy will be joined on the road by are two other young singer/songwriters. 20-year-old Lewis Watson is travelling across the pond from Oxford. While local performer Lakyn Heperi, also aged 20, will be providing even more acoustic pop to the proceedings.

Tickets on sale from 9am on Wednesday, December 12. For more ticket info head over to www.officialbirdy.com and www.livenation.com.au
