Tommy Emmanuel - Live in concert 2023

Australia’s internationally acclaimed acoustic guitar icon Tommy Emmanuel CGP has recently added yet another accolade to his vast collection, having  been named number one acoustic guitarist in the world on Music Radar, as voted by his fellow musicians.

Tommy returns to Australia in May 2023 for the first time in four years. He will undertake a packed three week national tour, including  headlining the renowned Blues On Broadbeach festival on the Gold Coast.

Tommy brings the power and dynamism of a full band to his solo acoustic playing, with incredible charisma, stunning speed and dexterity and unerring command of melody.

Tommy’s message is pure love for the guitar and the music and his delight in sharing it with the world, one audience at a time. Tommy’s greatest honour was being named by his childhood idol Chet Atkins as a ‘Certified Guitar Player’ (CGP). The legendary US guitarist and producer Atkins gave this designation to only five players in history.
