Passenger is currently killing it in Australia, not just in our charts but also in our venues, with the folk sensation announcing his second run of Australian tour dates for 2013, just scraping in the double up by heading back Down Under this December.
Passenger’s single Let Her Go has proved to have some serious legs on it, hitting #1 on the ARIA charts and staying in the upper quartile for 5 weeks. The track comes from good stock, with his All The Little Lights album reaching platinum status in this here land of ours.
The last Aussie tour for Passenger was in support of Ed Sheeran., and though he did manage to squeeze in a few headlining spots at the time, this go-around he’s the main event once more, testament to how much demand for his music has increased since he last performed here. Definitely a show worth checking out.
