Andrew Wishart announces national tour

X Factor sentimental favourite and runner up Andrew Wishart is excited to announce a national tour, kicking off July 14 in Adelaide.

Andrew has been performing live in his home state Victoria for many years.  Announcing a national tour is a dream for Andrew who released his debut album Its Never Too Late on May 4.  The independent self-funded album release marks a huge milestone for the father of 4 who is determined to make his dreams of performing music for a living a reality after his success on 2011’s X Factor TV series.

On the tour, Andrew says “Since X Factor I have received countless requests to release music and to tour from Cairns to Broken Hill and beyond.  I am thrilled I am now doing all these things and look forward to sharing my music with people LIVE around the country.”

The album features the track ‘This Much I Know‘ which was written for Andrew to perform at the Grand Finale of X Factor and is at radio now.  A second single penned by Andrew will go to radio prior to an independent EP being released later this year.

During the live shows, Andrew will treat his audiences to his personal beautiful interpretations of some of his favourite songs  - some of which he performed on X Factor including Adele’s Someone Like You, U2’s With or Without You and Queen’s I Want to Breakfree.   Audiences will also enjoy some surprises including a sneak peak of some of Andrew’s original tracks.   Andrew has the most incredible voice – one that fills a room and leaves audiences wanting more.

Andrew plans to tour for the remainder of the year in both metropolitan and country areas, with more dates being locked in regularly – visit for up to date information on venues and ticketing.
