Aussie icon Missy Higgins announces Australian tour

Australian singer-songwriter Missy Higgins announces “The Second Act Tour” in 2024, marking the 20th anniversary of her acclaimed debut album, The Sound of White.

Australian singer-songwriter Missy Higgins announces “The Second Act Tour” in 2024, marking the 20th anniversary of her acclaimed debut album, The Sound of White.

The national tour will hit 21 cities, including Frankston, Ballarat, Canberra, Sydney, Perth, Hobart, Launceston, St. Kilda, Mackay, Cairns, Townsville, Bendigo, Traralgon, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Tanunda, Toowoomba, Caloundra, Rooty Hill, and Newcastle.

Celebrating over a million copies sold and six ARIA Awards, The Sound of White is known for hits like “Scar,” “Ten Days,” and “The Special Two.” Fans can access a Frontier Member presale starting Monday, 11 December, before tickets go on general sale on Wednesday, 13 December, via frontiertouring.com/missyhiggins.

A deluxe 20th Anniversary album reissue is also set for release on April 5, available for pre-order now.

Higgins’s tour presents a unique two-act format, featuring new songs and early career favorites in an acoustic setting, followed by a performance of The Sound of White in its entirety with her full band. This marks her first theatre tour since 2018 and revisits venues from her initial rise to fame in 2004.

The tour is seen as a celebration of Higgins’s influence on Australian music, inspiring artists like Amy Shark, Gretta Ray, Gordi, and Angie McMahon. Reflecting on her journey, Higgins notes a return to the confessional style of songwriting as she navigates life changes at 40, akin to her experiences at 20.

Richard Kingsmill, Music Director of the triple j Networks, highlights Higgins’s impact on subsequent generations of artists. Her authenticity and Australianness have inspired many, transcending gender boundaries in the music industry.

The 20th-anniversary edition of The Sound of White includes a new track, “Cry Me A River,” alongside bonus live recordings. Higgins looks forward to releasing new songs leading up to the tour and a subsequent album later in the year, continuing her legacy as a prominent figure in Australian music.
