Richard Clapton is going on tour this June!
The ARIA Hall of Fame inductee is set to perform headline dates in Melbourne, Brisbane, Thirroul, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth next month. The Music Is Love tour will see the revered songwriter take to the road alongside his band for these very special double-set theatre shows.
Hot off the back of his 16th record, Music Is Love (1966-1970), the first set of the show will see Clapton playing songs from the record. The second set will see him performing some of his best and biggest hits.
“I am so looking forward to this tour,” said Richard. “This is a very rare event so come on down and hear some of the world’s greatest songs played by a great band.
“And yeah – I will be playing a lot of my old songs as well, so all in all it’s gonna be a lot of fun! This is gonna be a real trip!”
Music For Love is Clapton’s first covers album, which was inspired by a visit to San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury two years ago. Looking back to his roots, the record sees Clapton taking on some of his favourite tracks from the likes of Bob Dylan, The Byrds, David Crosby, Neil Young and more.
He was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame back in 1999. The songwriter is responsible for tracks like ‘Girls On The Avenue’, ‘Deep Water’ and ‘Capricorn Dancer’, among others.
The Frontier members pre-sale will open for 24 hours prior to general release, from Wednesday, 12th May at 12PM AEST.
General tickets go on sale at 12PM AEST on Friday, 14th May.
