Paul Dempsey does not stop. Having spent 2018 touring Europe, the UK, Iceland and South America with David Bowie’s band, completing sold out east and west coast regional Australian tours, contributing the lead single to the extraordinary Vast Project, performing at the Australian of the Year Awards, having a song in triple j’s Hottest 100 and writing for the upcoming new Something for Kate album, Paul also recently sold out Melbourne’s grand Recital Centre in less than 24 hours. Add to that a second sold out hometown show, and if this isn’t enough, Paul is excited to announce his first solo acoustic show in Sydney since 2014!
Having released his second solo album ‘Strange Loop’ to outstanding reviews and a top 5 ARIA chart debut, this solo show will showcase Paul’s formidable talent as he takes to the stage on his own, offering fans intimate and stripped back interpretations of songs from ‘Strange Loop’ as well as his gold-selling debut ‘Everything Is True’. He is also promising a well-chosen cover, something that he has a unique talent for, in this up close and personal evening with one of Australia’s most respected and loved artists.
