ONE NIGHT ONLY: Mar 13th 2016
With a #1 record in the UK Album charts, acclaimed US singer/songwriter John Grant returns to Australia to perform a very special headline show at The Forum Theatre on Sunday 13th March. The show comes off the back of Grant’s newly released third studio album Grey Tickles, Black Pressure, out now via Bella Union.
Grants solo career began with the release of Queen Of Denmark in 2010. After that landmark return, 2013’s Pale Green Ghosts entered the UK Top 20 in its first week and made Rough Trade Shop’s Album of the Year 2013.
Now a resident of Reykjavik, Grant recently lent his considerable talents to Ásgeir, completing the English translation for the singer’s hit album In The Silence. Grant has performed alongside names like Elton John, Hercules and Love Affair, Gus Gus and Goldfrapp. Now, with Grey Tickles, Black Pressure, he’s unveiled his finest work yet.
‘Deceptively capacious … John Grant finds life-affirming humour in mournful scenarios set to perverse disco-industrial grooves. An excellent album.’ – The Age ★★★★
‘Intelligent, irreverent, incredibly strange and possibly John Grant’s finest record to date.’ – Double J Feature Album, Oct 12
“His most riveting album yet.” Q - 4 Stars ****
“A magnificent album, enthralling in its complexity.” MOJO - 4 Stars ****
