GRAEME CONNORS TAKES ’60 SUMMERS’ OFF THE BEATEN TRACK
There is no question that 2016 has been a banner year for acclaimed singer-songwriter, Graeme Connors with an induction into the Country Music Roll of Renown (Hall of Fame) and his ’60 Summers’ project delivering a #1 ARIA Country Chart album and #1 Official Country Airplay single with the title track and sold out shows on the accompanying tour. Now, due to popular demand, Graeme’s sensational ’60 Summers’ tour is expanding and going off the beaten track.
Starting on Tuesday 11th October in Tenterfield, the tour will stop at Narrabri, Bourke, Lightning Ridge and St George. These dates will complement a previously announced run which will see Graeme performing in Orange, Thirroul, Cessnock, Penrith and Wyong in early November.
Throughout the two-hour+ show, the iconic singer-songwriter and his incredible band perform a selection of hits, new songs and fan favourites inspired by his best-selling album ’60 Summers: The Ultimate Collection’. The 37 track double-album set was released on Graeme’s 60 birthday on April 29 and delivered the highest ARIA chart placing of his celebrated career when it debuted at #11 on the ARIA All-Genre Album chart and #1 on the ARIA Country Album chart.
It is a fitting tribute to a 40 year career which, over the course of 16 studio albums, has seen Graeme awarded with 14 Golden Guitars, an ARIA award, two APRA songwriting awards, two American Song Festival Awards, two MO Awards for live performance, 12 Tamworth Songwriters Association Awards and a prestigious Songmaker accolade for contribution to Australian songwriting.
Graeme commented “I am thrilled that after 40 plus years in the music business and 60 years of life I have the opportunity to achieve new milestones and I look forward to sharing my thanks with some of the friends & fans that make these things happen when I hit the road for the ’60 Summers’ tour”.
Join Graeme ‘In Concert’ celebrating his outstanding career in an evening jam packed with landmark songs and unforgettable performances.
