Archie Roach – POSTPONED (new date)

Tue 12 April at 7:30 pm

In his final national tour ever, legendary songwriter, ‘voice of the Stolen Generations’ and 2020 Victorian Australian of the Year Archie Roach AM will take his brilliantly reviewed Tell Me Why show to capital cities May through September.

This spectacular live concert will celebrate Roach’s eponymous memoir and latest album. Audiences will hear seminal songs from his back catalogue alongside influential music from his youth and three new autobiographical songs written since completing his memoir.

With well documented health challenges, including a stroke and lung cancer, Archie Roach is by most measures not a well man, but once he takes to the stage a certain majesty takes over and the stories and the songs are as compelling as the voice that sings them.

Roach will be joined onstage by his five-piece band, including award-winning jazz composer and improviser Paul Grabowsky, and special guest vocalist Emma Donovan.

“Releasing my debut album, Charcoal Lane back in 1990, was the most amazing experience in my life. I never imagined that I would be here three decades later still recording and singing on stages in Australia and the World. Music has kept me going, kept me alive. It’s something that I have come to love, especially the relationship I have with those who come to my shows. I am also most grateful to all the people that I have worked with through the years.” – Archie Roach
