Global folk superstar, Passenger will reconnect with his second home when he returns to Australia in 2024.The British singer-songwriter, best known for his 2012 banger 'Let Her Go', has a close affinity with us Aussies having moved down under in 2009 after his band dissolved.
Focused on busking and building his own solo career, Passenger aka Mike Rosenberg would write and record his 2010 album 'Flight Of The Crow' – which features a host of Australian friends including Josh Pyke, Kate Miller-Heidke, Matt Corby, Katie Noonan and members of Boy & Bear – in Australia, as was 2013's 'All The Little Lights' (which birthed 'Let Her Go' as well as 'Holes', 'The Wrong Direction' and 'Things That Stop You Dreaming').
A prolific writer having released 14 albums in total, Passenger has released a record of original material almost annually the last 15 years; his most recent LP was 2022's 'Birds That Flew And Ships That Sailed'.
Last year he released the live album 'Passenger (Live From San Francisco)' and the 10th anniversary re-recorded and re-imagined 'All The Lights'.
"I love Australia and still see it as my second home," Mike says who'll headline concerts in Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne next October.
"It was the first place to really embrace me and my music. I've recorded albums, busked and played so many gigs here and have so many wonderful memories.
"I sadly don't spend as much time in Oz as I would like to, but it's always an absolute treat to come back and play gigs and catch up with mates. I really can't wait to see you all again."
Tickets on sale from 10am (local time) on 16 February.
