He continued: “Sydney for a while was my home – I spent months busking, writing, recording and playing small venues around the city – so to come back all the years later and play this iconic venue is just the most wonderful feeling. I genuinely can’t wait!”

Passenger new Australian tour will see him return to stages down under for the first time in six years, in honour of the tenth anniversary of his seminal LP, All The Little Lights.

The down under leg of his All The Little Lights (Anniversary Edition) world tour begins on Thursday, 17th October in Perth, and will also see Passenger visit fans in Brisbane, and Melbourne on top of the aforementioned Sydney dates.
