One of the UK's most gripping songwriters and guitarists is coming to Australia in May.

Ben Howard has sent Aussie fans into a ticket-buying frenzy as his Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane tour dates for May 2024 sold out faster than you can strum a guitar. The demand has been so immense that Secret Sounds, in collaboration with the power-packed British artist, has announced additional and final shows in all three cities.

The music maestro will now grace the iconic Palais Theatre in Melbourne on Sunday, 26 May, Sydney’s enchanting Enmore Theatre on Thursday, 30 May, and Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall on Saturday, 1 June.

Ben Howard announces Australian tour in May 2024

Ben Howard’s musical journey is one that has resonated globally since his triple platinum debut album, “Every Kingdom,” back in 2011. Whether it’s the acoustic melodies or the experimental pop soundscapes, Howard has carved a niche that is uniquely his own. His fifth studio album, “Is It?” released in June 2023, is a testament to his evolution as an artist, with textured and experimental pop songs that showcase a new sonic dimension.

Recorded over 10 days in the Le Manoir de Léon studios, nestled between Bordeaux and Biarritz in the South of France, “Is It?” captures Howard in a moment of intense creativity. Produced by Bullion, the album promises a lush and sonically splintered experience, reflecting some of Howard’s most upbeat and uplifting work in years.

Described by The Times as “spellbinding, transcendental even,” Ben Howard’s live show is where the magic truly unfolds. Accompanied by his expansive band, Howard’s intense performances have been known to captivate and mesmerise audiences. His ability to operate in and out of the shadows creates a rare and vital proposition, making his upcoming Australian tour in May 2024 an unmissable event.

Tickets for the new shows go live at 12 pm AEDT today (Thu 1 Feb) on
