UPDATE: Following Paul Kelly’s Wollongong show at Anita’s Theatre on Saturday August 17th selling out, a second show for Illawarra fans has been announced.

Last October Australian singer songwriter Paul Kelly released his 19th studio album ‘Spring And Fall’. He will be performing the record in its entirety, followed by a generous selection of older songs. This selection will change from night to night and will include well-known songs and a few surprises.

Paul recently said on stage in the USA where he is currently touring to rave reviews: “‘Spring and Fall’ is a song cycle which is just a fancy way of saying - if you listen to the songs in order they tell a story. Each song links to the next and the whole piece is a love story told from multiple points of view.”

The band touring with Paul will be Dan Kelly on guitar and vocals; J. Walker, who co-produced and played on the album; Zoe Hauptmann on bass (who recently performed on the Finn and Kelly tour) and Bree Van Reyk (Holly Throsby, Seeker Lover Keeper) on drums.

Australian Music Prize Nominee, Hip Hop MC and Producer, Urthboy, will be opening the show each night. Paul and Urthboy first worked together in 2008, when Urthboy reworked Paul and Kev Carmody's song From Little Things Big Things Grow to celebrate Kevin Rudd's apology to the Stolen Generations. More recently they have collaborated on a cover of the Hunters and Collectors song True Tears Of Joy.

Urthboy’s most recent album ‘Smokey's Haunt’ has been celebrated for its storytelling with 4 and 5 star reviews across the board and his live show promises to be an intriguing part of each night's entertainment.

Tickets on sale at 9am Friday June 14.

"A song cycle reflecting the rise and fall of a romance, it's understated yet engaging, melancholy yet revealing - something only a master like Kelly can accomplish." - Austin Chronicle, USA

Kelly is one of the world's most expressive and economical songwriters, one of the world's best, period." - Boston Globe, USA

"Paul Kelly is a national treasure; it's just a shame he's not our nation's to claim." - Popdose, USA

"…He never loses the attention of the listener, which is a resounding confirmation of his sharply intelligent, heart-tugging talent." - The Mirror, UK

“…a singer-songwriter amongst the greatest of his - or any other generation." - Mojo, UK

"All good songwriters are not afraid to re-interpret their songs, change them around, play them differently. That's what makes a good song; it can be whatever they want it to be at that particular time and it still stands up on its own. Kelly is the undisputed master of this." - Americana, USA
