Paul Kelly Plays Four Outdoor Concerts This December With World-Class Special Guests

Legendary Paul Kelly is playing four special outdoor concerts this December on his 'Making Gravy' tour. He will be playing the biggest hits from his four-decade thick catalogue at Perth's Optus Stadium, then will make his way to Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl and Sydney's The Domain. Eagerly-awaiting fans at the Brisbane Riverstage will see the final show.

It's perfect timing, with Kelly's just-announced new greatest hits album 'Songs From The South' (1985–2019) being released on November 15 through EMI Australia. It will feature numerous revered songs from the iconic songwriter's illustrious career, including cuts from his most recent studio albums, 'Life Is Fine' and 'Nature'. Classics like 'To Her Door', 'Dumb Things', and 'From Little Things Big Things Grow' will be there, plus recent gems such as 'With The One I Love', the Dan Sultan collaboration 'Every Day My Mother's Voice', and a brand new single with Kasey Chambers, 'When We're Both Old And Mad', and of course, 'How To Make Gravy'.

Alongside the album release of 'Songs From The South' (1985–2019) is Kelly's new book, Love Is Strong As Death, a collection of poems he curated, to be released on November 18 (Penguin). '13 Ways To Look At Birds', Kelly's classical album, will also be out on August 30.

Inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 1997, Paul Kelly is renowned as one of Australia's greatest performers and songwriters, with a prolific 24 studio albums, multiple film soundtracks, and two live albums under his belt. 2017's 'Life Is Fine' saw Kelly finally achieve his first ARIA #1 album, also earning him ARIA Awards for Best Male, Best Adult Contemporary Album, Best Cover Art and Engineer Of The Year. He backed it up with another ARIA #1 album in 2018 with 'Nature'. He's toured Australia countless times, both as headliner and occasionally in support of greats like Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. In 2017, he was awarded the Order of Australia for his distinguished service to the performing arts and the promotion of the national identity through his artistry and body of work.

The special guests on the tour are some of Australia and New Zealand's finest musical exports—Courtney Barnett, Kate Miller-Heidke, and Marlon Williams. Thelma Plum will also be providing sweetness, and that extra tang, as she opens the show in Sydney. They will all elevate the outdoor concert series to a new level, highlighting the best and brightest local talent in today's scene.
