Dan Sultan

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse, Tonedeaf & The GO! Foundation

Dan Sultan’s national Dirty Ground tour takes the ARIA-winning performer back out on the road in intimate solo mode.

The tour celebrates the release of his latest EP Dirty Ground, full of sparse and stunning new songs as well as some quieter moments and B-sides from his acclaimed 2014 album Blackbird. Blackbird recently received the 2014 ARIA Award for ‘Best Rock Album’. The new songs, which showcase Dan’s outstanding and unique vocal talent, include co-writes with Australian folk legend Paul Kelly and Damian Dempsey from Something For Kate.

The EP was recorded in one day at Melbourne’s Way Of The Eagle studios with lauded producer Jan Skubiszewski. In this intimate solo mode, the sit down shows allow Sultan to showcase his unique talent as not only a singer and songwriter, but a teller of stories.

Joining Dan on stage as his support act will be Melbourne’s own Pierce Brothers. It’s been a whirlwind 12 months for these twins as their latest EP The Night Tree came in at #21 on the ARIA charts, top ten on iTunes & #1 on the AIR charts. On their latest national tour they sold out five shows in their hometown of Melbourne and have sold over 30,000 EP’s independently – an astonishing feat as the young duo having no major radio play or label support.

This tour is proudly presented in association with the GO! Foundation, of which Dan is an ambassador. The GO! Foundation aims to assist Indigenous Australian youths achieve their goals through education scholarships.
