INTIMATE MELBOURNE SHOW ANNOUNCED THIS DECEMBER
"The most important artist of his generation." - Q Magazine
Frontier Touring are thrilled to confirm that Damon Albarn, one of the most intuitively gifted and inventive musicians in modern music, will be performing at Melbourne’s iconic Palais Theatre on Friday 12 December, to celebrate the recent release of his critically acclaimed new solo album, Everyday Robots (Parlophone).
Everyday Robots, an album which “underlines that Albarn is an artist of originality and depth, a master of melody, and a gifted, inventive musician” (MOJO), features guest appearances from Brian Eno and Natasha Khan of Bat For Lashes, and is the first record to be released under his own name.
Joining Albarn onstage is his new live band The Heavy Seas, including guitarist Seye Adelekan, drummer Pauli The PSM, guitarist Jeff Wootton and Mike Smith on keyboards.
Albarn’s eclectic musical style and observational lyrics have made him one of the world’s most influential and consistently interesting contemporary musicians. He was first heard alongside Blur bandmates Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree through the band’s wry commentary on English life on classic albums Modern Life is Rubbish (1993), Parklife (1994), and The Great Escape (1995).
The 46-year-old Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, producer and composer’s career also encompasses the massive global success of virtual band Gorillaz; two full length opera compositions (Dr Dee and Monkey: Journey To The West); Africa Express, the collective of African and Western musicians founded by Albarn and Baaba Maal in 2007; and writer and producer credits on Bobby Womack’s acclaimed The Bravest Man In The Universe (2012). Other releases include Mali Music (2002), The Good, The Bad & The Queen (2007) with The Clash’s Paul Simonon; and Rocket Juice & The Moon (2012) with Tony Allen and Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
No further dates will be added to Albarn’s Australian visit, so be quick to get tickets to this iconic musician’s first ever Australian solo show when they go on sale from 9am on Friday 18 July!

Fraser A. Gorman
Part of the Milk! Records stable alongside the world-conquering Courtney Barnett, the Torquay-raised, Melbourne-based Gorman has won a reputation in his adopted hometown for his classic folk-influenced songwriting (think Dylan, Guthrie, etc) and rollicking live shows. After a string of well received EPs and singles, including community radio faves “Dark Eyes” (watch here) and “The Book of Love” (watch here), anticipation is high for Gorman’s debut LP, coming soon.
Joining him onstage will be guitar slinger extraordinaire Davey Lane, a regular in Gorman’s band, a solo artist in his own right and member of You Am I.
