Moby or as we affectionately call him, Mobes, is returning to Australia a decade after the release of his monster album Play, which catapulted him onto the worldwide stage, garnering critical acclaim and sales in excess of ten million. Moby’s return will see him perform an array of fan favourites, as well as showcasing tracks from his 2009 release Wait for Me (available now through EMI) – an album many are hailing his finest to date.
Wait for Me sees Moby take a path many hadn’t anticipated. At times morose, and distinctly darker than previous releases, Wait for Me offers a slow burn, where layer after layer is uncovered listen after listen offering a unique perspective over Moby’s world. Fans and critics have offered their praise in unison, suggesting only one outcome: Moby is at the peak of his career.
