Delta Goodrem has announced a huge tour of Australia.
Later this year, the singer will play six national shows for her first major tour in seven years.
Announcing the tour, Delta Goodrem said: “I want to reconnect with the Australian public again, play all the songs they love, kick my shoes off, get on the piano, get on the guitar. It feels like now is the right time. I’m in my element. Playing live is what I do best, it’s primal, it’s exciting and it’s heartfelt.”
“This tour is what I’ve been thinking about as I’m falling asleep, I’m so excited,” she added: “This tour will be the one that celebrates all the chapters of my career. I want to capture the earthiness, a bit of sparkle and fantasy and show how I’ve evolved as an artist.”
The tour will kick off on October 27th in Newcastle, followed by shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Brisbane will be her final stop on November 11th.
Talking of her upcoming shows, Goodrem said: “I want to make this the best show yet. I’ve been able to see so many concerts over the past few years, which has been really inspiring. It’s going to be familiar yet unpredictable. I can be quite spontaneous on stage.
“I love going to concerts where you’re reminded it’s live. I’m hoping people can choose some of the songs, I’m up for having a request moment. It’s time to move into the new chapter of live shows. I want to take people down memory lane but also inspire and empower them for their future.”
Along with performing some of her greatest hits, and giving fans the opportunity to request songs, Delta Goodrem will also perform “Memory” from the musical “Cats” which she performed in.
“So many people who came to Cats said they’d been waiting 10 or 15 years to see me sing live. I can’t wait to sing Memory again, play all the songs that have meant something to people, the songs that have been a soundtrack of our lives over the past 15 years,” Goodrem said.
Tickets for the shows go on sale next Thursday (30th June) at 2pm.
