30 November 18
From humble beginnings in the late 90’s Hobart music scene to touring the world with The Drones and his own band, Mike Noga has become one of the most recognised and respected faces in the Australian music world. Noga’s career has seen him rise from the tiny pubs and clubs of Melbourne to playing prestigious venues the world over including the Sydney Opera House and stadium shows with Neil Young.
Now, for the first time, Noga will be hitting the road to present songs from all three of his critically acclaimed solo albums in solo mode – from the contemplative whisper of 2006’s Folk Songs, to the biting country rock of The Balladeer Hunter, all the way to 2016’s enthralling and ambitious concept album KING. Noga will take to the stage of intimate venues to present two sets each night, the first focussing on Folk Songs and The Balladeer Hunter, while the second will present songs from KING as well as a selection of covers that influenced that album. The tour takes in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart and tickets are on sale now.
These will be some of Noga’s last shows before his new album release in early 2019 and copies of his debut album Folk Songs will be on sale at each gig for the first time since it’s release.
Joining Noga for the Victorian leg is the debut performance from Captain Fighting Machine, the new project from The Gin Club’s Conor McDonald.
