What a crazy week it’s been. I must say what an honour and delight it was for The Black Fins and I to be invited to pay tribute to Crowded House alongside one of my favorite people Missy Higgins at the 2016 ARIA Awards as they were inducted into the Hall of Fame. Beautiful songs that people will carry in their hearts and whistle on their lips for generations. Thanks to all of the Crowdie team for having us.
Also, I was honestly and genuinely so surprised to win an ARIA that I forgot to thank a whole lot of people! So I’d like to take this opportunity to thank those who bought Civil Dusk and came along to the tour. You, the fans are the most important people in the process because without your support, none of us would have anything to do. So thanks. Dad rock wins again.
With the Civil Dusk tour now wrapped up, it’s exciting to share some further tour news with you!
We, Bernard Fanning and The Black Fins, do hereby declare our joy in announcing the birth of the ‘Sooner Or Later’ tour with Kasey Chambers through regional QLD, NSW and VIC. We have been having such a ball playing each other’s shows over the last ten years that we finally decided to take it on the road. Looking forward to getting to some places that I have never played in and sharing the stage with a great mate and total legend, Kasey.
To get you in the mood, I’m happy to share a performance of ‘Sooner or Later’ below which we filmed and recorded live at the stunning Palais Theatre in Melbourne back in October. If you came along to this show on the Civil Dusk tour you might want to take a closer look – you could spot yourself in a cameo!
So without further ado, all dates and ticketing details can be found at soonerorlatertour.com
