Aussie singer songwriter (and one of Ireland’s favourite sons) Damien Leith will celebrate his landmark tenth anniversary in the Australian Music business by hitting the road from late August this year on an extensive national tour.
The tour stretches all the way through to the middle of December and will visit almost every state and territory in the country (the Northern Territory misses out on this occasion), with a slew of regional shows to keep country punters happy.
Entitled “The Winner’s Journey : 10th Anniversary Tour”, it will see Damien performing songs from across his decade in the business, right from the ‘Idol’ beginnings, through to original releases and tracks from his beloved covers albums.
“It is hard to believe that it has been 10 years since I first stepped onto the ‘Australian Idol stage’,” the singer says in a statement. “One thing is for certain, I wouldn’t be doing what I am today without all the amazing support from fans over the years. From my albums, to my books and concerts, you’ve been there all the way and I can’t thank you all enough.”
Brilliantly, Damien will be taking requests via his Facebook page before each show in a way of further connecting with his audiences.
He may even drop in one or two tracks from a new album he’s been working on that’s currently slated for release later this year, details for which are to be revealed “soon”.
Tickets for all shows are on sale now.
