Swoon. Chris Isaak is coming to Adelaide for A Day On The Green at the stunning Annie’s Lane Winery in Clare. The Grammy-nominated Californian crooner will be touring the country next April and it will be the first time since 2006 that he has hit the a day on the green stage.
Isaak will be joined by James Reyne, Richard Clapton and Thirsty Merc.
Audiences will be treated to an inspired performance of tracks from First Comes The Night as well as long running hits like ‘Wicked Game’, ‘Forever Blue’, ‘Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing’ and ‘Somebody’s Crying’, all injected with Isaak’s sly sense of humour and raw charisma.
Three of his albums – Forever Blue, Wicked Game and The Best Of – boast Australian sales of over triple platinum accreditation, and latest release First Comes The Night (out now via Universal Music) is set to follow, debuting at #2 on the ARIA Album Chart a few weeks ago.
Isaak performed five a day on the green concerts in 2006, in one of the most popular tours the event has seen.
Joining Isaak at all shows will be local legend James Reyne. For more than three decades, Reyne’s songs have been the sound of the Australian summer, selling in excess of 2 million albums in the process. Lucky audiences will be treated to hits including ‘Reckless’, ‘Boys LightUp’ and ‘Motor’s Too Fast’ together for the first time on his forthcoming album “All The Hits – Live” (out November 27 via Liberation Music).
Richard Clapton has endeared himself to music-lovers everywhere through his heartfelt inspired performances and a songbook that defines our times. With hits like ‘Girls On The Avenue’, ‘Deep Water’, ‘Capricorn Dancer’ and ‘I Am An Island’, the ARIA Hall of Famer is a stellar addition to the line-up.
Thirsty Merc released their first album of new material in five years “Shifting Gears” in September, utilising the crowd funding platform PledgeMusic. With the new songs being well received by fans and their classic radio staples ‘20 Good Reasons’, ‘Someday Someday’ and ‘In The Summertime’, Thirsty Merc are back on the road.
