Anyone walking around the Melbourne CBD today might well bump into Amy Shark. The chart-topping singer-songwriter just announced a last-minute pop-up gig in Melbourne’s Southbank.
“I’ve never done this before!” said Shark on Twitter. “I’m in Melbourne CBD and ready to play some songs and see your faces! Come join me today: I’ll be performing solo on the Evan Walker Bridge at 1.15pm, see you there x”
The Evan Walker Bridge runs across the Yarra River in Melbourne’s Southbank neighbourhood, with Flinders Street Station to the north and Melbourne Skydeck to the south.

In a previous post, Shark described 2021 as “a tough but amazing year.” Her second album, Cry Forever, came out in April 2021. The record debuted at #1 in the ARIA charts and picked up ARIA nominations for Album of the Year, Best Artist and Best Pop Release. Shark’s Keith Urban-featuring single ‘Love Songs Ain’t For Us’ was also nominated for Song of the Year.
Shark is hitting the road through February and March 2022, playing headline shows in Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Wagga Wagga. Shark is headlining Deniliquin’s Play on the Plains festival in early March, alongside Spacey Jane, Skegss and Northeast Party House, and appearing at Bluesfest in April.
In the meantime, the Melbourne CBD is where you’ll find her.
