Gillian Welch says

Love Police are over the moon to announce that 2015 Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement for Songwriting Award winners Gillian Welch and David Rawlings will make a long awaited return to Australian shores in January and February 2016 for not one but two very special tours.

Playing as the duo, Gillian Welch, in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane before they transform into the quintet of the Dave Rawlings Machine for the drive back down the East Coast. Brisbane, Bangalow, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne all get ready to experience the first ever visit by the Machine.

“We are very excited, once again, to be bringing our songs and our selves, and a few of our good friends, all the way from Tennessee to the land of Australia way down under. We will be driving the wild back roads from Perth to Melbourne, Sydney to Brisbane… come out and say howdy when we roll in to town!” – Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Nashville, Tenn.

The dynamic duo were last here a long 11 years ago in 2004. No one had quite expected the sublime beauty and simplistic complexity of their voices and instruments in their live shows. From the grandeous Forum Theatre in Melbourne to the tiny Meeniyan Town Hall, they slayed ‘em all in shows that continue to be talked about.

Love Police’s Brian Taranto: “It has taken many years and attempts to get Gill and Dave back down here. We are absolutely stoked to be able to present both Gillian and the Machine in separate shows in as many towns as we are. It’s going to be a rolling circus of incredible tunes and good times.”
