Get ready for some serious harmonica

Announced late last month, we know Grammy-winning country/folk veteran Steve Earle along with his long-time band The Dukes will be rocking Bluesfest stages this coming March, bringing 16 studio albums worth of material to Australia.

But for those who can't get their blues-lovin' arses to Byron Bay for whatever reason, the Southern rocker has announced a set of six shows for Aussies to get a taste of his outlaw-country ways while he and his band are still in the country.

With his newest Terraplane in tow, he'll be kicking off the tour in Perth on Friday, 11 March, Steve Earle & The Dukes will head to Sydney's Rooty Hill RSL, Sydney's Metro Theatre, Melbourne's Recital Centre, Mackay's Entertainment and Convention Centre and finally Tanks in Cairns over nearly two weeks.

Joining him on most of the sideshows will be Americana husband-wife duo The Mastersons.
