Australian superstar and the country’s Eurovision debutant in 2015 Guy Sebastian is all set for his Then & Now 2018 Tour.
Releasing his latest album Conscious in 2017, yet again including several hit singles, Australian artist Guy Sebastian will be embarking on his Then & Now 2018 Tour. The tour will include past hits, songs from Conscious, and the public will be treated to forthcoming new material.
The charismatic singer talked to The Border Mail about his successful year and upcoming tour.
About his new material, he said:
This year has started off so well for me. I’ve spent a lot of time writing new material and preparing a new body of work that really excites me, and I can’t wait to share it soon.
The Then & Now 2018 Tour will bring Guy Sebastian throughout Australia, which enables him to visit his fans across the vast country. This is a joy to the artist:
One of my favourite things to do is perform live and I’m excited to bring my music to fans who live more remotely and get back to some amazing locations across Australia. I’m creating a show that will be a unique, one of a kind experience for my loyal fans.
The power of music is essential to Guy Sebastian, a driving force in his career:
The feedback I receive from people who respond to my music is so humbling, particularly when I receive messages on social media or letters saying that a song has helped someone through a difficult time. The power of music is my driving force and being able to affect people in that way is so liberating and something that I really treasure. My fans are all amazing … and I really feed off their energy when I’m out there on stage.
Guy Sebastian will be supported during his tour by Chicago-based Australian-born upcoming artist Fatai. She released her debut single in 2015 and already collaborated with Guy Sebastian on his song Lightning, and also featured on his Eurovision 2015 hit Tonight again.
The Then & Now 2018 Tour will start on 9 June 2018 in Wollongong. For all dates, venues and ticket prices visit the artist’s official website
