Will Welsh songstress Duffy add Australian dates to her tour itinerary for 2009? She last week announced that given the chart success of her debut album ‘Rockferry’ across the Tasman, she would play three dates in New Zealand, set down for late March/early April 2009. Her album has achieved double platinum status in New Zealand, notching up sales of more than 30,000 copies. In Australia, meanwhile, her album has been classified ‘gold’, for sales of more than 35,000 copies. Given the similar sales amounts and given our two countries are geographically so close to each other, surely selected Australian dates will be announced for just prior (March) or just after (April) the New Zealand dates…? We’ll keep you posted. Meanwhile, an expanded ‘collectors’ edition of ‘Rockferry’ is due for release in Australia on November 22.
