Blockbuster set for Sebastian

By Shepparton News

This winter, for the first time in two-and-a-half years, Guy Sebastian takes his band on the road with his hit-laden Then & Now regional tour.

One of Australia’s most popular and successful male artists, Sebastian brings a blockbuster set to some of his favourite regional cities throughout June and July.

Recent releases from Sebastian’s current album, Conscious, such as Bloodstone and Set In Stone, will be performed alongside songs which have shaped his illustrious career for the past 15 years and made him one of Australia’s most enduring artists, with more than 40 platinum-certified releases and more than three million sales to date.

Fans will also be treated to a sneak peek of his highly anticipated new material, set to be released later in the year.

Sebastian said his year had started well.

‘‘I’ve spent a lot of time writing new material and preparing a new body of work that really excites me, and I can’t wait to share it.

‘‘One of my favourite things to do is perform live and I’m excited to bring my music to fans who live more remotely and get back to some amazing locations across Australia.

‘‘I’m creating a show that will be a unique, one-of-a-kind experience for my loyal fans.’’

Supporting Sebastian on his Then & Now tour is Aussie-born Chicago-based singer Fatai.

Since releasing her debut single Purple in late 2015, and her debut EP Undone shortly after, Fatai has gone on to sell out multiple headline tours in North America, Australia and New Zealand, and she is currently working on her sophomore EP.

Since bursting into the consciousness of the Australian public in 2003, when he was crowned the first winner of Australian Idol, Sebastian has gone on to become the only Australian male artist in history to achieve six number one singles and two number one albums.

To date, Sebastian has had 42 platinum-certified releases, sold more than 3.7million singles and albums, and his first number one solo single, Angels Brought Me Here, still holds the record for the fastest selling single in ARIA chart history.

Guy Sebastian appears at Shepparton’s Eastbank Centre on Thursday, June 21 at 7.30pm. Tickets are $86.90. To book, phone Riverlinks on 58329511.
