Frontier Touring are delighted to announce award-winning singer-songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke’s Child In Reverse Tour, taking place across September, October, November and December 2021!
Joined by her six-piece band, the tour will see Kate play regional towns and cities across Australia, performing 15 shows over four months.
“It has felt like an eternity waiting for this tour to begin. I’ll be playing with my favourite musicians and we are bursting with joy and excitement at the prospect of hitting the road again after so long. We will be premiering some brand new material plus selecting some deep cuts from the back catalogue, as well as celebrating some old favourites.
Playing live has always been a pivotal part of what I do – the connection with you all and sharing loved moments in time and space. This one is going to be special.”
Miller-Heidke will take to the stage in Cairns, Darwin, Sydney, Wollongong, Western Sydney, Newcastle, Bendigo, Melbourne, Yarra Valley, Warragul, Geelong, Hobart, Adelaide, Perth and Swan Valley.
Traversing the worlds of contemporary pop, folk, and opera, Kate has released five studio albums including the top 5 albums ‘O Vertigo!’, ‘Nightflight’, and ‘Curiouser’, which reached double platinum sales and featured the multi-platinum hits ‘The Last Day On Earth’ and ‘Caught In The Crowd’. Further hits from the multi-ARIA nominated vocal powerhouse include ‘Zero Gravity’, ‘Share Your Air’ feat.Passenger, ‘Sarah’ and ‘Ride This Feeling’.
Her fifth studio album, 2020’s Top 10 ARIA Album Child In Reverse (EMI Music Australia) – hailed as her most pop album to date – spawned the singles, ‘This Is Not Forever’, ‘Deluded’, ‘A Quiet Voice’, ‘Little Roots, Little Shoots’ and ‘Simpatico’ feat. Mallrat.
Trained as a classical singer at the Queensland Conservatorium, Kate’s work is as diverse as her voice. She has performed at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, dazzled in several roles for the English National Opera, won four Helpmann Awards for her debut opera as a composer, ‘The Rabbits’, written the music and lyrics (with her collaborator Keir Nuttall) to ‘Muriel’s Wedding: The Musical’ and represented Australia at Eurovision in 2019 with her original song ‘Zero Gravity’ – coming first in her semi-final and achieving a top ten placing in the Grand Final.
Staying busy throughout 2020, Kate performed a very special rendition of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ for Mushroom Group and Visit Victoria’s The State Of Music, recorded at Kate’s home during lockdown and a first ever live performance of her single ‘Deluded’ for ABC TV’s The Sound. Kate appeared as the much loved ‘Queen’ on Network TEN’s The Masked Singer in 2020, performing spine-tingling renditions under the mask including, ‘Blinding Lights’, ‘Dancing On My Own’, ‘Paint It Black’ before her revealing finale of ‘I Will Survive’.
Kate has been nominated for ARIAs in categories varying from Best Pop Release, Best Adult Contemporary Album, Best Classical Album, Best Cast Recording, Best Comedy Release and Best Australian Live Act.
