One of the biggest names in the world of neo-soul, Jill Scott, has announced her first ever Australian tour for later this year. She’ll bring her ten-piece band down under for shows in Perth. Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in November.
Speaking with theMusic.com.au last week, Scott said she was overjoyed at the prospect of visiting our country, though admitted she wasn’t aware she had much of a fan base down here.
“I can’t wait. I’ve never been, I cannot wait to see what my eyes see, I can’t wait to smell, I can’t wait to touch. I’m very excited; this is a big deal for me.
“I just got familiar when I got on twitter and I started receiving tweets from Aussies and I’m like ‘well hello! Hi!’. I spoke to my partner and my agent and said ‘I have to go to Australia’ and I just waited until they said that we got it.”
Last week she revealed that she has not one but two new LPs on the boil at the moment.
“Recently I just finished working on a lullaby album. It’s a medicinal record, it’s meant for people who have insomnia – but it’s not your traditional lullabies; it’s incredible musicianship and lyrics that are intended to inspire you in your reset. It’s almost like deprogramming the negative things that occur in life and the negative things that are said about you as a person.”
Scott plays the following dates around the nation this November – tickets are on sale from 9am on Tuesday 18 June:
Sunday 17 November – Riverside Theatre, Perth
Tuesday 19 November – Palais Theatre, Melbourne
Thursday 21 November – Tivoli, Brisbane
Saturday 23 November – Enmore Theatre, Sydney
