Ben Harper's relationship with Australia cannot be overstated; it was in Australia that he really found his first success in the mid-late 1990s and he hasn't forgotten that, coming back over here just about every year for the past decade and a bit to treat his Aussie fans – and there are a lot of them – to his music in all different musical guises he adopts and projects he takes on. It's surprising then to hear that he has never actually performed a solo, headline tour of the country; well, not until now.

Harper is making his way to Australia to perform a series of massive shows all on his lonesome; he'll play for over two hours and pull hits from throughout his storied career at these shows, meaning that no matter what era of this great songwriter's ten-album, 18-year career you're most interested in, he's likely to delve into that kind of territory at some stage.

An Acoustic Evening with Ben Harper takes place along the east coast this November, tickets are on sale from 9am Wednesday 11 July.
