Exclusive: Simone Felice and Band Tour Australia

3 May 2012 | 4:25 pm | Dan Condon

Felice and Josh Ritter to play east coast shows this July.

Simone Felice is a singer, songwriter, novelist and most recently a survivor after a nasty congenital defect left him on the brink of death back in 2010, the artist requiring emergency open heart surgery. This brush with the other side has given Felice a good chance to reflect and has inspired a lot of material on his recently released self-titled solo record.

On the back of that solo record Felice is returning to Australia, this time bringing his entire band along with him for a tour that will see him hit venues across the eastern seaboard. As if that wasn't exciting enough, one of the most lauded American songwriters of the current era, Josh Ritter, is joining him on most of the dates, making this a seriously impressive double bill for any lovers of seriously well crafted Americana.

You can witness both of these incredible talents at the following shows:

Thursday 5 July – The Old Museum, Brisbane
Friday 6 July – Notes, Sydney
Sunday 8 July – The Basement, Sydney
Wednesday 11 July – The Corner Hotel, Melbourne (with Fraser A. Gorman)
Friday 13 July – Meeniyan Town Hall, Meeniyan (Simone Felice and Fraser A. Gorman only)
