Beth Hart Tour Dates

A singing and songwriting powerhouse that anyone will tell you is simply not to be missed, Beth Hart will be making her Australian debut with performances at The Basement in Sydney and Melbourne’s esteemed Corner Hotel, in addition of course to her appearance at Bluesfest this April.

Hart’s incredible voice, that combines elements of Janis Joplin and Stevie Nicks and is able to command a raft of genres, has led her to collaboration with the likes of Jeff Beck and Slash and has garnered praise from Bluesfest Director Peter Noble, who labelled her “as good as it gets.”
