Steve Earle & The Dukes

NEW BRISBANE SHOW JUST ANNOUNCED! Tickets on sale now!

“a formidable performer” – Guardian

Incomparable Country/Blues/Folk-rocker & pioneer of the Outlaw Country music movement, Steve Earle is returning to Australia.

Grammy award winning, prolific, and multi-skilled, Earle knocked the world on its head in 1986 with the ground-breaking Guitar Town, which shot to No. 1 on the Country charts and immediately established the term “New Country”.

Kahl Wallis supported Steve Earle & The Dukes at their show in Cairns.

A protégé of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt & Guy Clark, Earle is a master storyteller in his own right, with his songs being recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, The Pretenders, Joan Baez & countless others.

From biting hard rock to minimalist beauty to politically charged masterpieces, Earle’s catalogue bursts with 16 exciting, varied releases including Copperhead Road, Train A Comin’, Jerusalem, the Grammy Award winning The Revolution StartsNow, Washington Square Serenade & Townes, and his latest 2015 release, Terraplane, his first ever Blues album, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Blues Chart, won Blues Blast Magazine Acoustic Blues Album of the Year Award 2015, & outsold every release since Copperhead Road. He’s notched 9 Top 40 singles, including the Top 10 country standard/pub-rock anthem ‘Copperhead Road’, 10 Top 10 albums & has 3 platinum-selling albums.

If his musical poetry isn’t enough, he is also a fearless political activist, an acclaimed playwright and actor, and now novelist, having released ‘I’ll Never Get out of Here Alive’ in 2011.

Steve Earle & his formidable band The Dukes are renowned for their rocking live show. Set to pack a punch yet again, returning often to Australia due to high audience demand. The seasoned, multi-instrumentalist offers musical prowess and provocative food-for-thought delivered with imaginative poetry and a glistening plethora of genres that sweep through a remarkable 30+ year career. Don’t miss Steve Earle & The Dukes on their next visit to Australia.
