Beth Orton | Australian Tour rescheduled to April 202417 Oct 2023
Frontier Touring wish to advise that the highly anticipated upcoming Australian tour by Brit Award winner and Mercury Prize nominee Beth Orton has been rescheduled to April 2024 –the singer’s previously announced East Coast headline shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney originally due to kick off next month.
The minor delay means good news for Tasmania fans, with Orton pleased to reveal the addition of an additional performance at Hobart’s Odeon Theatre on Friday 26 April.
Says Orton today:
“Dear Australia! I have an important announcement. I am having to reschedule my upcoming dates to April 2024. It’s not something I wanted to do, but for my health I need to take a pause. Through the wonders of modern science, medication, diet and being super careful, I’ve been able to keep all of my commitments this year which has been a miracle. But the advice at this stage is not to push it in November. I’m going to stay close to home and keep everything I do local for a few months and then I will come in April when I can take on the long haul flights and put everything into touring your beautiful part of the world with an extra special configuration of musicians in my band. I’m really excited to announce that we are adding a new show in Hobart too. Tickets will be valid for the new dates which are listed above and below. I can’t wait to see you all soon.”
Tickets for Orton’s just announced Hobart show are on sale now. Head to frontiertouring.com/bethorton for all the venue and ticketing information.
Tickets for the November 2023 Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane shows are valid for the corresponding April 2024 rescheduled dates – ticketholders don’t need to take any action. See further below re any refund info.

‘Orton’s best record in more than 20 years’ – ★★★★ Classic Pop
