Living legend Tony Joe White is returning to Australia in April. The gravelly voiced singer known as the Swamp Fox is a regular visitor to these shores, but we love having him here!
This time around he’ll play the blues festivals in Byron Bay and Perth, the Boogie festival in rural Victoria, and an amazing show with Dan Auerbach at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel.
The tour coincides with Tony Joe’s latest album Deep Cuts, which features reworkings of all his classic songs. The album doesn’t just update these iconic songs, it reframes them for a whole new audience. The album will be available exclusively at all Tony Joe’s Australian shows. Here are the dates!
