Lyrics by Talia Rinaldo
He’s one of the biggest, smoothest singers of his generation and he puts on two massive shows at the Rod Laver Arena due to overwhelming demand.
Multi-award-winning, multi-platinum global superstar Michael BublÃ© has announced new shows for his devoted following as part of his highly anticipated return to Australian stages in November and December 2022.
Tickets for BublÃ©’s Australian tour went on sale on Friday and due to huge demand new shows have now been added in Melbourne and Brisbane. He will now also perform at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on Thursday December 8 and the Brisbane Entertainment Center on Sunday December 18, 2022.
Keep up to date with the latest music news, feature films, festivals, interviews and reviews here.
BublÃ©’s tour kicks off in Newcastle on Wednesday November 30 before heading to Perth, Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on December 7 and 8, Adelaide, Sydney and ending in Brisbane with two dates.
During this six-city national tour, the sensational Canadian crooner will perform excerpts from his highly anticipated 11th studio album, Higher, and a selection of his original hits alongside his innovative versions of classic hits. Maybe “Christmas (baby please come home)” if we’re lucky. His album Higher debuted at number two on the ARIA chart.
“I’ve been touring Australia for 20 years now and having you all come to my shows makes me feel like the luckiest man alive,” says Michael BublÃ©.
“I love playing live, being on stage is a complete and absolute pleasure for me. It is a great pleasure and an honor for me to be able to present myself and to be so well received.
The last time BublÃ© graced our shores was in 2020 – for the Australian leg of his sold-out ‘An Evening with Michael BublÃ©’ tour – he jumped at the chance to lend his support to the lure of Australia’s bushfires with a live cross, from one of his shows in Melbourne to the Fire Fight Australia benefit concert in Sydney.
Australia embraced this universally beloved Canadian artist early on, with his 2003 self-titled debut album topping the ARIA Albums Chart. BublÃ© has since celebrated 4 more chart-topping albums in this country â 2013’s ‘To Be Loved’, 2011’s iconic ‘Christmas’, 2009’s ‘Crazy Love’ and 2007’s ‘Call Me Irresponsible’ â as well as 3 records that have peaked at 2 hours. During his extraordinary career, BublÃ© has sold over 75 million albums.
His 11th album “Higher” features more of BublÃ©’s original songs written by himself as well as reinvigorated standards, including a duet with Willie Nelson (“Crazy”), Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” and the classic by Sam Cooke “Bring It On Home To Me”. ‘.
As for his performance, BublÃ© is charismatic beyond belief and his in-between-song banter, often referred to as open-hearted awkwardness, never disappoints.
What a man, what a talent. This is not to be missed. You will leave ‘Feeling Good’ and that’s a promise.
