Grammy Award-winning multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier is coming to Australia

London based five-time Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier bringing his 'DJESSE WORLD TOUR' to Australia & New Zealand.

The tour will see Jacob take the stage performing music from Djesse; a first-of-its-kind four-volume, 50-song collection comprised of various classical-jazz-funk numbers that blend musical genres and defy all expectations. He’ll be performing at The Forum on Sunday December 4.

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

These six Australian and New Zealand shows join the massive run of more than 67-dates on the global tour, with Collier currently performing sold-out shows across the UK, Europe, Asia and the US, including some of his largest crowds and most legendary venues to date.

“I am stegosaurusally excited to be returning to one of the most spectacular parts of the world for some uproarious music-making,” says Jacob Collier. “It’s been three years since I’ve visited, and I am delighted to be returning.”

The project has been in the works for at least four years, with the first three records each earning critical acclaim, as well as multiple award wins and nominations. The final chapter, Djesse Vol. 4, remains shrouded in mystery with Collier keeping tight lipped on what fans can expect.

The first album in the series, Djesse Vol. 1 (2018), peaked at #1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart and has been likened to the musical stylings of Russian composer Igor Stravinsky and American producer and rapper J Dilla. He released three tracks as singles, including ‘With the Love in My Heart’, ‘Ocean Wide, Canyon Deep’ and ‘All Night Long’, which won Best Arrangement, Instrumental and Vocals at the 2020 Grammy Awards.
