Solo and acoustic, Robert Forster performs a tailor-made setlist of songs from 1978 to 2021.

Dubbed “the truest and strangest poet of his generation”, Forster is a statesman of Australian indie music. Seven solo records and co-founder of one of Australia’s most prolific bands in the 1980s (The Go-Betweens), he returns to the streets of his town for one night only.

“I’m ready to leave home. To re-engage with what I enjoy doing most. It will be the beginning of 2022, and I have just two shows booked for the year. Thankfully, one of them is in Brisbane. Life begins again.”

Reacquaint yourself with Forster’s iconic repertoire, as he travels through the pages of his weighty songbook.

Robert Forster will be supported by New Zealand ’90s band, The Garbage & The Flowers.

Robert Forster: Life Begins Again has been rescheduled to Thursday 31 March 2022 due to the impacts of COVID-19.
