Adelaide, get ready for a night of musical magic next month!
Acclaimed singer-songwriter and South Aussie icon Paul Kelly will join forces with distinguished composer Paul Grabowsky, performing live for one night only this September 8.
The stunning concert will see Kelly and Grabowsky present a reimagining of Kelly’s extraordinary body of work performed in their 2020 collaborative album Please Leave a Light On.
Exploring the expansive back catalogue of the Australian musical legend, Kelly and Grabowsky have intertwined their talents to create a unique show filled with fresh interpretations of songs like ‘Time and Tide’ and ‘Petrichor’.
Following the title of their ARIA-award winning jazz album, the Please Leave a Light On concert will be hosted at Her Majesty’s Theatre, with tickets starting at $79.
With Kelly not returning to his South Australian stomping grounds since January last year for the Cold Chisel reunion tour, this intimate gig will showcase his work like you’ve heard it before, with Grabowsky enhancing the tunes the nation knows and loves.
Long heralded as Australian national treasure, Kelly boasts a long and illustrious musical career spanning decades and multiple genres, producing great Aussie anthems like ‘How To Make Gravy’ and ‘To Her Door’.
A pioneer of the Australian music scene, Kelly co-wrote the iconic and moving protest song ‘From Big Things Little Things Grow’ with prominent Indigenous artist Kev Carmody in 1991, which remains a historical symbol of Indigenous freedom, as well as a much-loved tune.
In his own right, Grabowsky has made his mark in the music world, with the composer long recognised as Australian jazz royalty, having won multiple ARIA’s and Helpmann awards to recognise his outstanding talent.
Presented by the Adelaide Festival Centre, this magical musical union of the two Pauls is something you don’t want to miss.
Please Leave a Light On by Paul Kelly and Paul Grabowsky will be performed live on September 8 2021 at Her Majesty’s Theatre.
