CHRIS ISAAK “BEYOND THE SUN” TOUR 2013 NEW SYDNEY DATE ADDED
Due to overwhelming demand, McManus Entertainment is thrilled to announce that Chris Isaak will play a second Sydney date on his upcoming Australian tour. Owing to the sell-out success of his previously announced date at Sydney’s State Theatre, a new show has been added on Tuesday 9 April at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre.
Music’s coolest crooner will now begin and finish his national “Beyond The Sun” tour in Sydney, also visiting Perth, Melbourne, Byron Bay, Deniliquin, Thredbo, Rockhampton, Cairns, Townsville and Caloundra.
Tickets for the newly announced Sydney show go on sale through Ticketek on Monday 18 February 2013. Tickets for all other dates are now on sale through various outlets.
Chris Isaak says, “Australian audiences are the best! I think I have a show they are gonna dig! We are playing all the hits and it’s really fun to throw in a whole “show within the show” where we play a bunch of the real early rock n roll hits like “Ring Of Fire” and “Can’t Help Falling In Love”. We roll out an upright piano and a stand up bass and I think it’s the most fun I’ve ever had on stage. I’m looking forward to surfing till soundcheck and playing all night”.
From crooner to retro-rocker to one of music’s most sensitive singer-songwriters, Chris has been making some of the coolest music for the past 25 years. In addition to being a multi-platinum artist, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, acclaimed actor and all-round great guy, Chris is a charismatic showman and entertainer. His live shows are spectacular events that keep his audiences coming back again and again. His stories alone are enough to keep people wanting more! His long-time legendary band, Silvertone, featuring Kenney Dale Johnson on drums, will accompany Chris on his upcoming Australian tour.
Chris Isaak has had an impressive recording career since his 1985 debut Silvertone to last year’s Beyond The Sun, which pays tribute to some of music’s greatest artists including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison. Beyond The Sun debuted at number 3 on the Australia ARIA album chart.
Some of his biggest hits include Wicked Game, Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing, Dancin’, Blue Hotel and Somebody’s Crying.
Chris Isaak will be joined by special guest Jon Stevens at all the shows (except Melbourne). Kasey Chambers will join Chris for the Melbourne show at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
