The smooth-singing Southerner is returning to Sydney

Following not one but two sold-out visits to our shores in 2016, Leon Bridges will once again bring his brand of smooth, old-school soul to Sydney. Bridges has a 50s and 60s Americana musical sensibility that, with a sense of style almost as sharp as his vocal talent, is still relevant today.

Coming as part of the massive Bluesfest line-up, the Texan will play at the Metro Theatre on March 28, taking to the stage to croon his way through hits from his Grammy-nominated 2015 debut Coming Home including up beat, boogie-inducing numbers 'Better Man' and 'Smooth Sailin'' to the intimate, gospel hymn-like 'River'.
