BERNARD FANNING announces A Day on the Green shows with The Cruel Sea, Sarah Blasko and Bob Evans

With a #1 debut for his new album ‘Departures’, rave reviews, press covers everywhere, plenty of radio love and fans more than thrilled with his new songs, Bernard Fanning is once again at the forefront of Australian music.


And that being said, it’s the perfect time to announce the much-loved, multi-awarded singer-songwriter has teamed up with the equally much-loved winery event a day on the green for a series of concerts nationally in late October/November.


Fanning is set to bring his acclaimed ‘Tea & Sympathy’ and ‘Departures’ albums to the stage on a warm summer’s night against the back-drop of the beautiful vineyards of Mudgee and the Hunter Valley in NSW, Barossa Valley in SA, Yarra Valley in VIC and Mt Cotton in Qld, and the picturesque Kings Park in Perth.  How good will this be?


Special guests on the tour – also making their a day on the green debut – will be the iconic Cruel Sea, along with the incredible Sarah Blasko and the charming Bob Evans.


“I'm really looking forward to these a day on the green shows,” Fanning said. “I have been hearing about them for years and am glad to be playing my new songs in such a dignified setting. And I'm looking forward to a couple of vinos with Bob Evans and Sarah Blasko.”


Fanning’s ‘Departures’ album, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA chart last week, is his first since Powderfinger called it a day and is the highly anticipated follow up to his 5 x Platinum solo debut ‘Tea & Sympathy’.  His recording success is paralleled in the live arena, where he has proved again and again why he is one of Australia’s finest and most popular live performers.


He is delighted to have three top quality Australian acts in The Cruel Sea, Sarah Blasko and Bob Evans joining him for what promises to be a very special a day on the green.


Sarah Blasko’s fourth album ‘I Awake’ has re-affirmed her status as one of the country’s most outstanding and most applauded artists......‘a defining, unsettling masterpiece’ (Rolling Stone), ‘a great Australian talent’ (The Australian), ‘a truly once in a lifetime artist’ (West Australian) and ‘captivating’ (Herald Sun).  After a sojourn in Paris touring and promoting ‘I Awake’, the ARIA award-winning Best Female Artist returns home in July to co-incide with the release of the haunting new single ‘All Of Me’. Enchanting and undeniably brilliant, Sarah is set to thrill a day on the green audiences.


Bob Evans, the lovable alter-ego of Jebediah frontman Kevin Mitchell, has been charming fans with his quirky solo projects for the past decade.  His fourth album instalment ‘Famous Stranger’ was released in March and showcases a progressive pop sound that is downright irresistible. He’s sure to be a crowd pleaser at the upcoming concerts.


Bernard Fanning, The Cruel Sea, Sarah Blasko and Bob Evans – sounds like a wonderful day of great Australian music!
