Kate Miller-Heidke announces the massive CATCHING DIAMONDS national regional tour. Coming soon to towns across Australia in January-March 2024.
Kate Miller-Heidke is an award-winning singer-songwriter who traverses the worlds of folk, pop, opera and musical theatre. She has performed on stages as varied as the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Coachella, the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Eurovision Song Contest, the Sydney Opera House, and the Roebuck Bay Hotel, Broome.
And now, after long months locked away writing, Kate is hitting the road to play in dozens of beautiful theatres around Australia on the CATCHING DIAMONDS TOUR.
Kate will be playing her greatest hits and most beloved pop songs, as well as performing tracks from her original musicals Muriel’s Wedding The Musical and the brand new Bananaland, some unexpected covers, taking requests, and telling stories from across her varied career. Excitingly, she’ll also be debuting new material from her forthcoming 6th studio album, which will dive deep into the genre of ‘gothic folk’.
This is a special opportunity to see Kate in intimate, stripped-back mode, accompanied by her long-term collaborator Keir Nuttall on guitar. (The bendy poles from Eurovision will be there emotionally, but not physically).
Kate says of the upcoming tour, “Playing live has always been at the heart of what I do – I live for it. I can’t wait to get back to some places I haven’t been in AGES, and some I’ve never been to, and connect with my amazing audiences across Australia. Regional crowds are some of the greatest people to play for!”
Like all Kate Miller-Heidke shows, the CATCHING DIAMONDS TOUR will be a celebration of voice, storytelling, emotion, humour, and music that transports and transcends. Of discovering anew each night the transformative connection between the performer and the audience.
Catch Kate Miller-Heidke at a town near you.
Special guest GEORGIA MOONEY will be joining Kate at all shows.
Georgia Mooney is an ARIA-winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Sydney. Her music is ornate, lush, and hand-crafted. Audiences already know Mooney from beloved folk band All Our Exes Live In Texas. And now she has released her debut solo album ‘Full of Moon’, which marks an exciting new chapter and the stepping forward of a major talent.
Her solo work is a stylistic departure for Mooney, a striking indie-folk-pop album, a glorious and imaginative sonic fresco, rich in texture and colour, and as wide in scope as the seductive intimacy of Mooney’s stunning vocals and confronting and deftly observed lyrics. The diversity of her songwriting is on full display: from artful indie-pop to 80s-inspired eccentricity, to exquisite folk songs which feel instantly timeless, as Mooney combines a breadth of musicality to create a world and sound uniquely her own.
