OZ … Â AUSTRALIAN STORIES
READÂ THE BOOK
HEARÂ THE ALBUM
SEEÂ THE TOUR
Beloved Aussie singer/songwriter Missy Higgins has just announced a one-off Australian tour called OZ.
These September/October dates will be Missy’s only shows for at least the next 12 months.
Tickets for The OZ Tour will be released at 10am on August 14 from usual outlets.
The announcement of this special concert series follows hot on the heels of two other major Missy announcements.
Firstly she revealed that she is due to give birth to her first child in early January (hence her strictly limited touring plans).
Secondly she just unveiled a brand new album of eclectic Australian cover versions and a companion book of essays.
Both the album and the book are called OZ.
OZ - the album, and OZ – the book, will be released on September 19.
They can each be enjoyed on their own or they can be experienced together in a deluxe cloth-bound CD/Book edition.
Now comes news that OZ … the tour … will commence in Cairns the day after these book and album releases.
Fittingly the strictly limited tour will then take the ARIA Award winning singer/songwriter right around Australia
before finishing in her hometown of Melbourne on October 29.
The concerts will see Missy combining some OZ songs with her own classics such as “The Special Two”, “Scar”, Steer”,
“Where I Stood”, “Unashamed Desire” and Everyone’sÂ Waiting”.
Over the last decade Missy Higgins has become one of our most beloved singer/songwriters.
HerÂ three previous albums, The Sound of White, On a Clear Night and The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle, have sold more than a million copies.
They’ve each gone to #1 on the Australian charts and each has also been recognised with ARIA Awards.Â
