Now that we’ve all had time to get to know Kate Miller-Heidke’s most recent album O Vertigo!, she’s preparing to showcase its songs on stage with an extensive national tour.
This isn’t the first time she’s brought the songs to the stage, but it is the first chance that music lovers in regional centres will have the chance to enjoy Kate’s live show in some time. It’s also the first time she’ll play them with a full band, after launching the album with an acoustic tour earlier this year.
The upcoming shows will give Kate a chance to give back to her loyal fans that helped fund the album in just three days via PledgeMusic.
“I feel like live performance has always been at the heart of what I do,” Kate explained. “Often the test of a good song is if it works in a very stripped-back, acoustic mode. I love reinventing the songs in this way. I’m looking forward to bringing the new songs, as well as a mixture of older stuff, out far beyond the
capital cities, especially places I’ve never played before.”
After these shows Kate will head to the United Kingdom for her first headlining tour before travelling to America to perform in the New York Metropolitan Opera’s production of The Death of Klinghoffer, so who knows when you’ll get a chance to see her again! It’s definitely her last local tour of the year, so make sure you don’t miss it.
