PJ Harvey Announced as First Artist for Sydney Festival 2017
A huge win for Sydney's newest venue.
August 31, 2016
The high priestess of dark rock is coming to Australia — PJ Harvey is the very first artist announced for Sydney Festival 2016. Locked in to play an exclusive performance at Sydney's shiny new International Convention Centre on Sunday, January 22, Harvey will be backed by her ten-piece band for a career-spanning set.
It's been a while between drinks — Harvey hasn't performed in Australia since her 2012 Sydney Festival concert. It's a new live show for the UK indie rock legend, one that's already toured Europe and the US and features all your favourite early classics and newer material.
It's also one of the first concerts announced for Sydney's epic $1.5 billion ICC, with all round nice guy but undeniably less badass Keith Urban recently announced as the very first artist for the new venue.
PJ Harvey plays ICC Sydney Theatre in Darling Harbour on Sunday, January 22. Tickets on sale tomorrow at 8am AEST from Sydney Festival's website. An allocation of tickets will also be held for Sydney Festival customers, on sale from 27 October.
