PJ Harvey tour

Two time Mercury Prize winner PJ Harvey will return to Australia in January to showcase her critically acclaimed Let England Shake album.

PJ will play shows at the Sydney Festival and Hobart’s MONA FOMA festival as well as dates in Perth and Melbourne accompanied by a band which features regular collaborators Mick Harvey, John Parish and Jean Marc Butty.

Earlier this year PJ Harvey spoke to FasterLouder and explained that her new album took “an enormous amount of work… [there was] such a lot of preparation not only in terms of writing and creating it in the first place, but in terms of the way it was presented, all the artwork, and then setting up the dates.”

PJ Harvey tour:

Friday 13th January – Concert Hall, Perth (18+)
Sunday 15th January – Regent Theatre, Melbourne (All Ages)
Monday 16th January – Regent Theatre, Melbourne (All Ages)
Wednesday 18th January – State Theatre, Sydney (Presented by FasterLouder)
Thursday 19th January – State Theatre, Sydney (Presented by FasterLouder)
Saturday 21st January – Princes Wharf One, Hobart

Tickets on sale Monday 17th October

So fucking excited for this. With PJ, Bon Iver and Kanye already announced, 2012 is looking set to surpass this year for me, when it comes to live music.

Dorset is a county, not a town. I believe she's from Bridport. Also it's only spelt with one t

have fun, you lucky people who'll go to see her! :p
i'm so very picky about women vocalists, but her voice i can never get tired of. :) still, i'm not a huge fan, so frankly can't say if i'd be willing to pay a large sum to see the show...

Hmm think I will skip presale and wait for full launch of Sydney & Perth Fests (both Nov 2nd), have a feeling Biophilia will fit into there somewhere?

Bjork is either Sydfest or Harvest 2012 I think (if they even have a Harvest 2012). Only touring artist atm that could match the size of getting Portishead.

Followed by Motorhead in 2013 and The Talking Heads in 2014.

I see a trend emerging...
