Venue: Concert Hall  View Seat Map
Presented by: Sydney Opera House

For his Opera House debut and only Australian side-show for 2014, Dallas Green returns to Sydney in classic confessional form with an intimate, career-spanning solo set.

Description

Celebrating a decade since the phenomenal online groundswell that brought us the haunting debut album Sometimes, singer-songwriter Dallas Green follows last year's critically-acclaimed tour of marathon band performances with his stripped back Opera House debut as City and Colour - taking the stage solo with his crystalline falsetto, life-defining lyrics, and the songbook of soul-searching confessionals that brought us the Nashville-born sweep of The Hurry and the Harm.

Rustling a dozen years on the road leading post-hardcore heroes Alexisonfire, the Canadian singer-songwriter has flourished from bedroom-recorded beginnings to sharing an open-book intimacy inspired by his own deeply-driven struggles to cathartic effect. Echoing the rustic edges of fellow countryman Neil Young whilst supporting the likes of Bob Dylan, City and Colour's pin-drop silences and heart-bruised live renditions have garnered an unending love on Australian shores – from introducing the Little Hell hit single 'Fragile Bird' to the world through Triple J to fulfilling his last Sydney statement that 'if you promise you'll always be here, I'll always come back'.

Now returning for a career-celebrating Opera House debut in the epic setting of the Concert Hall, Dallas Green will guide audiences through his most panoramic release yet whilst taking City and Colour back to where it all began in classic, intimate form.
