    Emmylou Harris to Tour Australia in November 2012

    Emmylou Harris, who is spending the North American summer and fall on tour across Canada and the United States, will celebrate the Southern Hemispheric spring touring Australia with her band the Red Dirt Boys this November. The tour, featuring music from Harris's latest Nonesuch release, Hard Bargain, and favorite songs from throughout her storied career, begins at the Perth Concert Hall on Tuesday, November 6, and include stops in Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, and the Gold Coast. Tickets go on sale this week.

    Harris's current tour brings her to the Lagunitas Brewing Company in Petaluma, California, tonight for a special show to benefit Rocket Dog Rescue & Bonaparte's Retreat, the non-profit dog rescue she founded. She performs at the Vancouver Island MusicFest this coming weekend and at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, with Steve Martin and Arlo Guthrie next Wednesday.

    Reviewing Harris's sold-out concert at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park’s amphitheatre this past Friday, the Grand Rapids Press's Lorilee Craker says "Harris was ethereal, otherworldly in the beauty of her voice and the unchanging, haunting quality to her music."

It´s nice that´s Emmylou goes on tour. I hope she come next year to germany. She is my hero and I wish me every year that I can see this wonderfull woman in concert. Love regards from germany, Anke (Sorry for my english)

What a beautiful voice and fantastic performance! The more I listen to Emmylou's singing the more I love it! "Pancho and Lefty", "Tulsa Queen", "Love and happiness", "Shores of White Sand" - to name just a few. But did you listen to her singing of "Michelangelo"?
I will definitely do my best to go to Sydney to see her concert on 15-Nov-2012.
Thank you, Emmylou, for filling my life with your angelic singing!
Viktor

Thank you Emmylou for a great show at Jupiters in Qld a few weeks ago. This was my first time seeing you live and I was singing, laughing and dancing ( in my seat ) the whole show. Great band of musicians as well. Can't wait until you come back downunder.
