One night only: Bernard Fanning to play in Hobart

Shared by |tags, ,

Bernard Fanning, the lead singer of one of Australia's most iconic bands Powderfinger, will be playing one live Tasmanian show that you can't miss out on this August.

To promote the release of his second solo album Departures earlier this month, Fanning has planned an extensive national tour through July and August, heading down to Hobart's Wrest Point on Tuesday August 13, 2013.

Departures comes eight years after his debut solo release, Tea & Sympathy, with Fanning commenting that he feels like this is "new ground".

"The production doesn't reveal itself on the first listen – that was very intentional. I see this album as simply a collection of songs I've written at one point in time; I'm not going for some big 'reinvention'. It's more a reset."

The ARIA award-winning artist said that the new album is "much more energetic", making for a really dynamic show when played with his tracks from Tea & Sympathy.

Fanning adds that recording Departures was the hardest vocal session he had ever done, with the backing vocals alone taking a week and a half.

Last week (June 17), Departures debuted at number one on the ARIA albums chart, with Fanning releasing 'Battleships' as the first single from the album.

Shows in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth have already sold out – so make sure to get your hands on some tickets quick!

You can secure your seats at Fanning's Hobart show by visiting the Tix Tas website, with tickets from $70.90.

The R18 show will also feature special guests Big Scary and Vance Joy, so make sure to get along to this gig to witness Australian talent at its best!
