6 Degrees Management are thrilled to announce that Australia’s most successful male artist, Guy Sebastian, will embark on his first ever national arena tour playing six shows as part of his ‘Madness’ tour with tickets going on sale to the general public at 12pm on Monday 18th August 2014.
The ‘Madness’ tour will kick off in February 2015 playing Wollongong, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. To celebrate the tour announcement, Guy Sebastian’s brand new single, ‘Come Home With Me’ will be heard on Australian radio from today and will be available to purchase digitally from Friday August 8th.
Guy Sebastian says, “I love playing live. For me, it’s probably one of the most rewarding aspects of being a musician. It was gratifying to win the ARIA Award for ‘Best Live Act’ last year because we put so much effort and energy into our shows. The ‘Madness’ tour will be on a whole new level; we are really upping the ante and going all out! I’m chomping at the bit to hit the road because it gets a bit crazy when you’re in the studio for hours on end. You definitely have to tap into a different headspace creatively and you can go a bit mad! Aristotle said, ‘there is no great genius without a mixture of madness’ and there was certainly a lot of madness surrounding this single and pulling this tour together…hence the name for the tour, ‘Madness’!”
The new single, ‘Come Home With Me’ was written by Guy Sebastian, Mario Marchetti (Demi Lovato, Black Eyed Peas) and Britt Burton (Alexandra Burke, The Wanted) and was recorded in both Sydney and Los Angeles. The single was mixed in Atlanta and mastered in New York. It’s a catchy pop hit that is sure to delight music directors and Australian music charts when it is released tomorrow.
There will be a number of different ticket options available for the ‘Madness’ tour. Fans that want to get up close and personal and play a part within the show can purchase tickets to ‘The Mad House’. This will be a dedicated standing area at the front of the stage where fans can dance and go wild whilst being involved in show. ‘The Mad House’ will be full of colour, fun and of course…madness!
Fans can expect one of the most incredible live shows with outstanding production on the 2015 ‘Madness’ tour as Guy is working closely with Canadian born, Bruce Ramus who has designed and directed countless international live shows and events including rock bands; U2, R.E.M., David Bowie, Bryan Adams, David Byrne, James Brown and television shows including; the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, MTV Awards, ARIA awards and Super Bowl Halftime Shows.
