The living legends of gospel musicwill be returning to Australian Shores with their glorious meld of gospel, blues and rock n roll. It’s harder to find a more joyful sound than their unforgettable shows filled with laughter and packed with emotion that they have finessed over seven decades of touring. The Blind Boys were formed in the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind over 70 years ago and they haven’t stopped since, their road has not been easy – but their regard in the industry is unrivalled;
Winners of 5 Grammy Awards and honored with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award (2009) are just some of their career highlights. The Blind Boys have shared the stage and collaborated with the finest musicians and songwriters including Lou Reed, Bob Dylan, Ben Harper, Mavis Staples, Tom Petty, John Fogerty and Peter Gabriel just to name a few.

On their last tour to Australia in 2011, The Blind Boys Of Alabama received rave reviews from their two sold out Sydney Opera House performances, a Palais Theatre concert, sold out performances in New Zealand and standout shows at Bluesfest.
