Emma Louise announced as support act on Missy Higgins' The Razzle Dazzle Summer Tour
Cairns indie pop darling Emma Louise has been announced as one of the support acts for Missy Higgins' upcoming national tour, alongside Gurrumul.
As Missy Higgins’ new single ‘Everyone’s Waiting’ zooms up the local charts, the beloved singer/songwriter has announced The Razzle Dazzle Summer Tour to weave around Australia through November/December, with special guests Gurrumul and Emma Louise along for the ride.
“It felt so good to finally get back on the road last June, I can't wait to do it again this time in bigger venues and with two amazing support artists, Gurrumul and Emma Louise,” said Missy.
“A lot of the theatres we'll be playing are my all time favourites. Some, like The Palais in Melbourne and the State Theatre in Sydney, I haven't played in over five years so it'll be an amazing way to end the year. I'll be bringing my Nashville band back again, this time with an exciting new addition or two!”
The Razzle Dazzle Summer Tour follows Missy’s recent totally sold out tour of more intimate theatres and last week’s US launch of her album The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle.
While in the US Missy also did sold out launch gigs in Nashville, New York and Los Angeles as well as performing Hello Hello on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Her album has received glowing reviews in major publications from People to The Wall Street Journal and this week it entered the U.S. Billboard 200 at #83 – Missy’s highest ever Stateside chart debut and the first time she has made the Top 100 of the Album Chart.
Despite it being five years between releases, ‘The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle’ debuted at No 1 in Australia following its release at the beginning of June.
Thanks to the overwhelming media and public reaction to ‘Everyone’s Waiting’, the album is still in the top 10 two months later.
The powerful video for Everyone’s Waiting has just been released. Filmed in Byron Bay it was directed by the ARIA Award winning Natasha Pincus who also created the clip for Missy’s first single Unashamed Desire as well as Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know.
