Soul powerhouse Fat Freddy's Drop have been confirmed for a massive party under the stars at Sydney Opera House.

The New Zealand collective will perform one show on the iconic venue’s Forecourt on November 11 as part of its monumental year-long 50th-anniversary program. 

"It’s an incredible opportunity for Freddy’s to play outdoors on the Forecourt at the iconic Sydney Opera House,” the band said.

“Freddy’s will be match-fit after a massive Europe and UK tour, our first since the impact of COVID-19 forced us off the international tour circuit.

“We’ve dug deep and developed new jams, such as the WAIRUNGA bush-alchemy album, that we’ll play along with Freddy’s high-energy and uplifting classics.”

Sydney Opera House Head of Contemporary Music Ben Marshall added: “Fat Freddy’s Drop is an effortlessly cool, multi-headed sonic hydra of dub, techno, soul, reggae, funk and more, and one of the world’s great live bands.

“Their previous sell-out appearances in the Concert Hall are the stuff of legend, so we are incredibly honoured and thrilled to finally give them the keys to the city’s grandest stage, the Sydney Opera House Forecourt, as Fat Freddy’s Drop help us celebrate our 50th in the finest possible way.

“Vivid LIVE might be over, but music is back at the House.”
