With Special Guests Holy Holy

In an amazing five-year journey from multi-ARIA Award-winning debut Moonfire, performances alongside Laura Marling and Mumford & Sons and last year's ARIA #1 classic-in-the-making, Harlequin Dream, Sydney's own Boy & Bear bring it all home for their grandest statement yet; an Opera House debut of golden age song-writing and pure folk-driven bliss before waving goodbye ahead of a 32-date tour of Europe and America, their biggest yet.

From their watershed rendition of Crowded House's 'Fall At Your Feet' to 2012’s gracious Remembering the Mexican performances in the heat of award-winning glory, Boy & Bear's world-wondering reach has resulted in a band at the height of their craft whilst venturing deeper within the heart of classic rock 'n' roll folklore. Guiding the gilded harmonies of breakthrough hits 'Mexican Mavis' and 'Rabbit Song' into the timeless tradition of American greats such as Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon and The Eagles on their sophomore follow up, the Sydney quintet have embraced the nation's spirit in a rare series of shows that have reached their most regional and earliest followers.

Renowned for eschewing encores in an all-singing display with drummer Tim Hart front of stage alongside his brother Jon Hart (banjo, mandolin, keyboards), Killian Gavin (guitar), David Symes (bass) and singer-songwriter Dave Hosking, the band's road-honed reputation has yielded festival-rousing performances and even the roots of their return single 'Southern Sun' – written in the setting hours prior to New Year's Eve before taking Falls Festival away with a headline set.

Now debuting their soaring melodies and rustic rhythms on the Concert Hall stage, don’t miss one of Australia's finest musical successes in a befitting finale on harbour-side shores before heading abroad.
