Craft Music & One Louder presents
Catching Diamonds Tour 2024
With Georgia Mooney
Tue 20 Feb, 2024 @ 7:30PM | Burrinja Theatre
Kate Miller-Heidke is an award-winning singer-songwriter who traverses the worlds of folk, pop, opera and musical theatre. She has performed on stages as varied as the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Coachella, the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Eurovision Song Contest, the Sydney Opera House, and the Roebuck Bay Hotel, Broome.
And now, after long months locked away writing songs, she’s hitting the road to play in dozens of beautiful theatres around Australia.
Kate will be playing her greatest hits and most beloved pop songs, as well as performing tracks from her original musicals ‘Muriel’s Wedding the Musical’ and the new ‘Bananaland’, some unexpected covers, taking requests, and telling stories from across her varied career. Excitingly, she’ll also be debuting new material from her forthcoming 6th studio album, which will dive deep into the genre of ‘gothic folk’.
This is a special opportunity to see Kate in intimate, stripped-back mode, accompanied by her long-term collaborator Keir Nuttall on guitar.
(The bendy poles from Eurovision will be there emotionally, but not physically).
Kate says of the upcoming tour, “Playing live has always been at the heart of what I do - I live for it. I can’t wait to get back to some places I haven’t been in AGES, and some I’ve never been to, and connect with my amazing audiences across Australia. Regional crowds are some of the greatest people to play for!”
Like all Kate Miller-Heidke shows, the CATCHING DIAMONDS tour will be a celebration of voice, storytelling, emotion, humour and music that transports and transcends, of discovering anew each night the transformative connection between the performer and the audience.
