The rich mellow vocals of Mr Harry Connick Jr. are coming back to Brisbane with the ‘Back Live’ Tour this December.
It’s been 10 long years since his last tour despite many visits recently including stints as a judge on Australian Idol.
The tour starts in Perth on 3 December before heading to Adelaide, Sydney and then Brisbane on the 12th of December. Concerts in Canberra and Melbourne finish off the 6 city tour.
Harry says “All I want to do is uplift audiences and I still get a kick out of performing the songs, that move me to this day, so hopefully people can feel that. If folks leave feeling better than when they came in, then it’s been a great night. I want to give people the best show they have ever seen!”
You can get your tickets for Harry’s concert at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from Ticketek.
