With tickets to his first show quickly snapped up after going on sale, a second and final Sydney performance by award-winning British songwriter James Blunt has been confirmed for the State Theatre on Saturday 31 May.

This announcement adds to a stellar year for Blunt, with his new album Moon Landing debuting at #5 on the ARIA album charts and peaking at #2 in the UK. Blunt’s first single, ‘Bonfire Heart’, is also making waves around the world, reaching #1 on the iTunes singles chart, debuting at #5 on the ARIA singles chart and the video receiving an incredible 10 million plus views online! Check out the official video here.

Bringing a full band with him for the tour, Australian audiences will surely be enthralled when Blunt returns for his first visit since 2011, playing songs from his fourth studio album as well as his best-loved hits. “There’s just something romantic, old-school and lonely about the moon landings,” he explains of his latest release. “A nostalgic memory of something huge that we can hardly believe we once achieved, and for some sad reason, can’t achieve again – like first love.”

Joining Blunt as special guests for all shows is home-grown talent BUSBY MAROU. Two years on from their acclaimed self-titled debut, second LP Farewell Fitzroy is a #5 ARIA album, 12 tracks of folk-pop, country-tinged songcraft and distinctly Australian storytelling from the gifted musicianship of Tom Busby and Jeremy Marou.
