Whitley Gets Intimate With His Audience In (Last?) Solo Tour

Written by Daniel Clarke on March 22, 2010

Having already toured his phenomenal album Go Forth, Find Mammoth with a full live band, Whitley returns from an overseas sabbatical in May with an intimate solo tour.

It’s a chance to get up close and personal with a singer who feels the pull of other areas of his life already encroaching on his music – travel, study and love. It will be one of the last times you can catch Whitley live in this environment.

Speaking to Triple J’s the Doctor recently, he said “this will be the last solo Whitley tour and the second last Whitley tour of all time. I’ve thought about it a lot and there’s other things I want to do. I want to pursue some education and travel a bit. I wanna learn sign language – be an interpreter for the deaf.”

Whitley toured extensively throughout the summer playing festivals across the country including Falls Festivals, Woodford, Peats Ridge, Southbound and Laneway Festivals. This time, it’s just him, his unique voice, witty and sometimes downright offensive banter and his guitar.
