Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne and his band will tour Australia in February next year, his first visit here in more than five years.
The tour will be a combination of theatre shows and performances under the "a day on the green" banner at some of the most picturesque wineries around Australia. Jackson will perform with his full band - Kevin McCormick (bass), Mark Goldenberg (lead guitars), Mauricio Lewak (drums), Jeff Young (keyboards and harmony vocals), Val McCallum (guitars) and Catherine Russell (harmony vocals) and deliver songs from his acclaimed thirty-year career.
In addition to the classic rock tracks, Jackson will spotlight material from his latest album "The Naked Ride Home" (Warners). "The Naked Ride Home" is Jackson's 13th career album and his first of new material since 1996's "Looking East". "The Next Voice You Hear: The Best Of Jackson Browne" was released in 1997.
In a review headlined "The ultimate Los Angeles songwriter rides on", U.S. Rolling Stone magazine awarded "The Naked Ride Home" a four-star (excellent) rating in their October issue, describing it as "passionately crafted and sung".
Over the course of three decades, Jackson has written and performed some of the most literate, moving songs in popular music. With classic albums like "Late For The Sky", "The Pretender", "Running On Empty" and "For Everyman", he has defined a genre of songwriting that is charged with honesty, emotion and personal politics. Along the way he has sold more than 15 million albums and touched the hearts and minds of countless fans worldwide.
