Dream A Highway – One More Australian Show

With the incredible and continuing support that has been shown by music loving fans of Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, Love Police Touring are excited to announce a very special musical celebration called DREAM A HIGHWAY featuring Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings Machine, Willie Watson and Haas Kowert Tice at Festival Hall in Melbourne on February 20.

This show comes at the end of a three week nationwide tour that has seen Gillian and Dave drive some 6937 kilometres of our highways to deliver revelatory shows night after night. Beginning in Perth as the duet Gillian Welch, and rolling all the way East to Melbourne, then North to Brisbane, Gillian and Dave are then joined by three musical amigos to transform into Dave Rawlings Machine for a run of shows all down the East Coast. This last special show will be a gathering of all the possible musical entities this group of extremely talented Artists can deliver.

Tickets for DREAM A HIGHWAY are ON SALE NOW. Please visit the Tour page for the most updated ticket links and the remaining Australian tour dates for both Gillian Welch and the Dave Rawlings Machine.

More Dave Rawlings Machine shows in April

After 45 shows in the US, the Dave Rawlings Machine preps for its first visit to Australia, a 6-show run down the East Coast following the first Gillian Welch tour down under since 2004.

For those cities in the US that we weren’t able to visit since Nashville Obsolete‘s release in September, we have great news! DRM has added a handful of shows in April, including first visits to Florida & Mississippi, as well as stops at old favorites in Bloomington, St. Louis, Louisville, Kansas City and more. This April run of shows also includes a co-headline in Charleston, SC, with our good friends the Punch Brothers and DRM’s Saturday appearance at Merlefest!

All April shows go on sale this Friday, 1/22 (except where noted) with a special fan club presale this Thursday, 1/21. A small number of great seats will be set aside for the presale, and you can access them with the passcode: “CANDY“. See the tour page for full run of dates!

After 11 Years, a Trip to Australia

Gillian Welch and David Rawlings will make a long awaited return to Australian shores in January and February in 2016 for not one but two very special tours.

 

 

Playing as the duo, Gillian Welch, in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, they will then transform into the quintet of the Dave Rawlings Machine for the drive back down the East Coast. Brisbane, Bangalow, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne will all get to experience the first ever visit by the Machine.

 

 

“We are very excited, once again, to be bringing our songs and our selves, and a few of our good friends, all the way from Tennessee to the land of Australia way down under. We will be driving the wild back roads from Perth to Melbourne, Sydney to Brisbane… come out and say howdy when we roll in to town!” – Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Nashville, Tenn.

 

Dave Rawlings Machine play in support of the recently released and critically acclaimed album Nashville Obsolete which features seven original compositions written by Welch-Rawlings. The Machine live band will feature Dave and Gillian, as well as Willie Watson, Punch Brother Paul Kowert and incredible fiddler Brittany Haas.

 

 

This will be the first Gillian tour in Australia since the GRAMMY nominated release The Harrow and the Harvest (2011), with the last tour down under wrapping up in 2004, following the releases of Soul Journey, and the 2001 masterpiece Time (The Revelator). The last tour stopped at such venues as the grandeous Forum Theatre in Melbourne to the tiny Meeniyan Town Hall, where they slayed ‘em all in shows that continue to be talked about.

 

All Australian tour dates will go on sale next Tuesday, Dec 1st, at 9am local time. See all dates below and visit gillianwelch.com for all news and tour updates.
