Ryan Bingham with Harry Hookey & Tim Wheatley Tour Dates

Though he’s perhaps best known as an Oscar Winner, Grammy Award Winner, and Golden Globe Award winner for The Weary Kind, his contribution to the Crazy Heart soundtrack, the Texas-raised Ryan Bingham is an artist with an unmistakable voice and a soulful knack for “drifter poetry.”

This consummate songwriter will be joined by Melbourne’s own Harry Hookey for five special headline performances while he’s here for Out On The Weekend. Fans in Melbourne will be getting a special added bonus with an appearance from talented Australian singer-songwriter Tim Wheatley.

Outlaw, songstress, style icon, Nikki Lane is all these things and more. With a new album produced by The Black KeysDan Auerbach under her belt, her star is sure to swiftly rise. Meanwhile, The Delines have been enjoying a reputation as one of the most buzzed-about bands in any genre.

Opening for both acts on all shows will be singer-songwriter Bex Chilcott’s alter ego, Ruby Boots, whose forthcoming album is set to feature the likes of Davey Lane (You Am I), Jordie Lane and Vikki Thorn (The Waifs), and Tony Buchan lending their musical and production talents.
