Kasey will showcase songs from ‘Bittersweet’ on the tour like the new title track single, a beautiful duet with Powderfinger’s Bernard Fanning – alongside long time favourites and hits from her award winning albums.

Joining Kasey on the road is label mate Harry Hookey.

Harry Hookey has also just been nominated at this year’s ARIA Awards for Best Blues & Roots Album for his debut release ‘Misdiagnosed’ and won the International Songwriters Competition for Independent Songwriter of the Year for the title track.

“Bittersweet” Tour Postponed on Doctor’s Advice

Postponed on Doctor’s Advice Until February & March 2015

It is with sincere disappointment and on doctor’s advice, that the Kasey Chambers’ Bittersweet Tour dates will be postponed until early 2015.

Kasey has been diagnosed with small nodules and inflammation on her vocal cords, and therefore advised by specialists to severely lessen her workload, which will include postponement of her Bittersweet Tour and cancellation of her Queenscliff Festival performance. She will undergo vocal therapy for the next few months to repair the damage and ultimately avoid surgery.

Kasey said, “I’m so disappointed that I will have to postpone the Bittersweet Tour due to 2 small nodules on my vocal chords. Doctors have advised that I lighten my workload considerably for a little while to give them a chance to heal, but luckily, if I take their advice, no surgery is needed. Thank you for the support over the last year, with some rest and a ‘no yelling at the kids to clean their room’, I’ll be back on track in no time!”.

Tickets can be kept and used at the re-scheduled dates or refunded (excluding Queenscliff Music Festival), however please contact your venue for all detailed ticket information from Tuesday 28th October.

The ‘Bittersweet Tour’ is Chambers’ first since the release of her tenth studio album of the same name, which debuted at #2 on the ARIA Album Chart, and just earned Kasey two ARIA Award nominations for Best Female Artist and Best Country Album.
