It's with great delight The Frontier Touring Company confirms David Gray will continue his love affair with Australian audiences as he returns this October. This visit will see David Gray return to Australia for the first time since his highly successful arena tour in 2006, performing in intimate venues in Sydney and Melbourne. Celebrating the release of his eighth studio album, Draw The Line, David Gray will perform strictly one show only in each city for his fans, ensuring tickets to these unique events will be in high demand.
After scaling enormous heights - album sales of over 12 million, BAFTA, Brit and Grammy nominations, two Ivor Novellos and an O award - Draw The Line sees David Gray return revitalised, with a new perspective, renewed energy and an invigorated desire. Lead single 'Fugitive' was the first taste fans had of the album, showcasing David Gray in spectacular fashion. A timeless ballad, 'Fugitive' is a welcomed return to the forefront.
Aiming to challenge himself and break his own boundaries, rather than simply reach for round two of world domination, David Gray appears to have achieved both with Draw The Line. Early reviews are already suggesting Draw The Line contains some of David Gray's strongest works to date:
"He can still write a melody" - The Observer
"...a pleasing, intimate experience" - musicOMH
"...Draw the Line makes rather beguiling listening as the nights begin to draw in" - The Guardian
David Gray's long-awaited return to Australia follows his 2006 visit, which saw him take on arena stages across the nation. This time David Gray returns to perform in theatres for the first time since 2003, a must-attend event for his most devote fans.
First introduced to Australian audiences over a decade ago via his epic album White Ladder, David Gray has been embraced by an ever-growing legion of fans. David Gray's last tour was a resounding success, drawing praise from all quarters as fans were enthralled and media gushed.

"Gray demonstrates that adult contemporary pop need not be mawkish or dull." - The Age
