Bernard Fanning 2015 Australian Tour

Bernard Fanning has had a career most musicians can only dream of.

He has spent over two decades entertaining and delighting audiences across the world with his extraordinary voice and renowned songwriting. From fronting Powderfinger, to penning nine albums (including Powderfinger and solo releases), travelling the globe from his backyard of Brisbane on countless sell-out tours, to becoming one of Australia’s most legendary musicians – winning a poolroom’s worth of ARIA Awards along the way.

After spending the past European summer in Madrid, Bernard’s well-earned break was interrupted by his oldest partner-in-crime: his acoustic guitar. Now, with a refreshed take on his distinctive and relentless songwriting, he brings home a new album along with a summer tour. Performing at the stunning surrounds of Leeuwin Estate in Margaret River, and the Melbourne and Taronga Zoo Twilight Series, an intimate night at the Newtown Social, and a hometown show at friend and Powderfinger’s bassist John Collins’ new venue The Triffid.

Bernard and his band will bring to life his acclaimed ‘Tea & Sympathy’ and ‘Departures’ albums, featuring hit singles “Wish You Well”, “Songbird”, “Watch Over Me” and “Battleships” as well as debuting to Australian audiences as yet unheard new material.

Sydney’s Little May will join Bernard to open all shows, in a music scene awash with thumping bass and auto-tuned rap, their arrival was a bolt from the blue  – their songs emotionally charged, intimate and lyrical and their music an entirely original take on folk with blues and indie influences that saw music writers invent the term ‘ghost folk’.
