Iron & Wine, vehicle for singer-songwriter Samuel Beam‘s deeply personal and poetic folk songs, have already been announced as one of the main draws for Bluesfest 2014, sharing the stage with John Mayer, John Butler Trio and more. Now Iron & Wine have announced that they will be playing two very special headline shows while Down Under.
Beam and co. will be playing one Sydney show at the famed Opera House and a Melbourne show at the equally iconic Forum Theatre. The highly-acclaimed Texas-native and his band will be delivering what is sure to be two intimate and splendorous performances, continuing a special bond that Beam has shared with Australian audiences for almost a decade.
His upcoming visit to Aussie shores will see him bring his latest album, Ghost On Ghost to life with a full band. The group have been touring extensively over the past few months and are poised and ready to share Iron & Wine’s fifth full-length as well as the rest of his much-loved discography with Australian audiences.
Pre-sale tickets are on sale now through Handsome Tours, with general public tickets out 9:00AM Friday, 20th September. Don’t miss out, this is destined to be one of the most memorable music events of 2014.
UPDATE 3:03pm AEDT 01/04/14: Iron & Wine has announced that rising Aussie star D.D Dumbo will continue his recent momentum by playing as support during the sold-out Melbourne show at The Forum. Dumbo has been garnering acclaim as of late for his debut single, Tropical Oceans.
