The US singer-songwriter will kick off the headline run at Sydney Opera House on Thursday, 1st December, followed by shows in Brisbane, Fremantle and Melbourne.

Sharon Van Etten – ‘Mistakes’

Van Etten’s forthcoming tour will mark her first Australian shows since 2019, which came in support of that year’s Remind Me Tomorrow. Since then, she’s released a new album: We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong, which arrived in May of this year. Last year, Van Etten released a 10th anniversary edition of her 2010 album Epic, which included covers of songs on the album by the likes of Courtney Barnett, IDLES, Fiona Apple and more.

Van Etten will be supported by Tanya Batts, aka BATTS, at the Brisbane and Melbourne shows. Van Etten recently collaborated with the Melbourne singer-songwriter on the single ‘Blue’, the first to be lifted from BATTS’ forthcoming album The Nightline. Banjo Lucia will be on support duties in Fremantle.
