Aug 20, 2013
After strong demand from his league of dedicated fans, and following two sold-out shows in his hometown of Melbourne earlier this year, Dan Sultan is happy to announce a national tour for his Back To Basics solo show. It will give his fans the opportunity to hear his inspired collection of new material in its rawest form, played live in a stripped-back and intimate environment.
As well as his national headline tour, Dan Sultan has been announced as special guest for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s 2014 Melbourne show alongside reformed Australian rock & roll legends Hunters and Collectors and the Hunter Valley show alongside The Rubens.
It will be a change of scenery for Sultan, who has been busy recording his third studio album, due for release in the first half of 2014. This time, he has teamed up with acclaimed producer Jacquire King (Kings Of Leon, Of Monsters and Men, Tom Waits, Norah Jones, The Editors, Modest Mouse) in the legendary music town of Nashville.
Dan’s upcoming national tour will be an opportunity for audiences to witness his classic yet intriguing songwriting abilities up close, and share an unforgettable experience with Australia’s favourite rock & roll soul man.
Tickets on sale Thursday 22 August.
Dan Sultan continues his association with Rock For Recognition* following a national tour last year. Rock For Recognition is a growing movement of artists calling for the recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our Constitution.

*Rock for Recognition
Australia’s Constitution is silent with respect to the cultures and languages of Australia’s First Peoples. It is also perhaps the only founding document in the world which still contains a ‘races power’ that allows the Parliament to enact racially discriminatory laws.
