Beck announces Australian headlining shows

Melbourne & Sydney shows set for Apr 2023

Frontier Touring has announced that 2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominee and 8x Grammy-winner Beck will perform two intimate and unique acoustic shows in Melbourne and Sydney in April 2023.

Delving deep into his acoustic roots, these special performances will highlight the pure songcraft of Beck’s standards and rarities, his unparalleled versatility on show at his first Australia headline shows in five years. Beck will perform at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre on Monday, April 3rd and Sydney’s Aware Super Theatre on Thursday, April 6th, before heading north for a set at Byron Bay’s Bluesfest.

A Frontier Members presale runs 24 hours starting Monday, December 5th at 11 am AEDT or until pre-sale allocation is exhausted. The general on sale is Wednesday, December 7th at 11 am AEDT.

As the title of his most recent album Hyperspace might imply, Beck has travelled light years from his emergence as a reluctant generational spokesperson when “Loser” exploded from a rejected 1992 demo into a ubiquitous 1994 smash. In the decades since, his singular career has seen him explore all genres and eras of music, blurring boundaries and blazing a path into the future while foraging through the past.

Beginning with his 1994 debut Mellow Gold, Beck’s creative evolution has always progressed at an exponential rate. From 1996’s multi-Platinum cultural touchstone Odelay to 1998’s world-tripping Mutations and the florescent funk of 1999’s Midnite Vultures, 2002’s sombre Sea Change, 2005’s Platinum tour de force Guero and 2006’s sprawling The Information, 2008’s acclaimed Modern Guilt, 2014’s Album of the Year Grammy winner Morning Phase, 2017’s Colors and his 2019 Hyperspace… No Beck record has ever sounded like its predecessor.

Beck 2023 Australian Tour:

Apr 3 – Melbourne, VIC @ Palais Theatre
