Luka Bloom Shares Long Statements, Remembering His Old Australian Tours And Music

Expressing his deep connection to Australia, Luka Bloom fondly recalls his first gig in the Southern Hemisphere back in 1992 via a press release statement. “On Friday the 20th November, 1992, I did my first gig in the Southern Hemisphere. It was in the Enmore Theatre in Sydney. My love for Australia was born, and it has never dimmed, or faded, not in the slightest. Over 14 tours, I have loved every show, every town or city I have played in. It is always fun and always an adventure,“ says Luka Bloom of his connectiont to Australia”.

Luka Bloom continues. “When my 15th tour of Australia begins in February 2024, it will be 5 years since my last visit in 2019. Too long. But there it is; so much has happened in our world. Approaching 70 now, I am closer to my final visit to Australia than my first one. Every gig counts these days. They always did, but especially now. Every opportunity to sing in Australia is precious to me. I am grateful for the welcome you have given me, and my songs. And cannot wait to return”.

He further said about the cities he hasn’t performed yet. “This tour will be long, with cities I have never before sung in, like Cairns, Townsville; and later Albany in the Southwest. It will be great to make some new friends and meet the friends I know already. Since the last tour I have recorded 4 albums. Live in De Roma, is from a concert in the great Roma Theatre in Antwerp, in November 2019”.

Luka Bloom concludes his statement by saying. “Bittersweet Crimson is a studio album from Windmill Lane, recorded in February 2020, just before ’The Great Pause’ of Covid….. Out of the Blue, is an instrumental album recorded during ’The Great Pause’ from 2021. Wave up to the Shore is a collection of 50 songs and tunes from across the 50 years I have been doing this.’ “We have some catching up to do, in the great red land. I can’t wait.”‘
