Frontier Touring by arrangement with Premier Artists is pleased to announce that iconic singer, songwriter and ARIA Hall Of Fame inductee Richard Clapton perform at The Gov on Saturday 26 June as part of his Music Is Love national tour.
‘It’s all about passion and precision here, as Clapton swings from The Doors to Neil Young, offering a rock history lesson, including a peek inside his musical youth’ – Herald Sun
‘Clapton has crafted an album that honours its title… The message is timeless, and Clapton, with his enduring hippie look and soulful voice, is the perfect messenger’ – STACK
Fresh off the release of Clapton’s new album Music Is Love (1966-1970), the revered songwriter will perform two sets: an electric first half showcasing his latest release; followed by a ‘Best Of’ set featuring all of Clapton’s most legendary hits.
Music Is Love is Clapton’s first covers album and his 16th studio release. On this release, Clapton has gone back to his roots, highlighting his love for artists such as Bob Dylan, The Byrds, David Crosby, Neil Young and Buffalo Springfield.
Inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame in 1999, Clapton is considered one of our finest songwriters, responsible for iconic songs such as ‘Girls On The Avenue’, ‘Deep Water’, ‘Capricorn Dancer’, ‘I Am An Island’, ‘The Best Years Of Our Lives’, ‘Lucky Country’, and ‘Glory Road’. Nicknamed ‘Australia’s favourite hippie’, he nurtured the career of INXS (producing their first hit ‘The Loved One’ and second album Underneath The Covers), and released his autobiography The Best Years Of Our Lives in 2014.
Don’t miss your chance to see one of our country’s greatest songsmiths, Richard Clapton, this June.
