The Grammy Award-winning artist is returning to Australia to perform her new album 'When I Get Home' at the Sydney Opera House.
UPDATE: JANUARY 17, 2020 — The Sydney Opera House has today announced that, due to health reasons, Solange has cancelled two of her four January shows. Performances on Monday, January 27 and Tuesday, January 28 will no longer be going ahead, but those on Thursday, January 30 and Friday, January 31 will. The SOH has already begun processing refunds for the first two shows. If you'd like to get tickets to one of the latter shows there are, thankfully, some still available — but we suggest you move quickly. The below article has been updated to reflect the changes.
After blowing Sydneysiders away with her singing, dancing and towering cosmic structures at the Sydney Opera House last year for Vivid Live, Solange is heading Down Under once more. The Grammy Award-winning singer — composer, choreographer, actress, filmmaker, fashion icon — is coming back to the Opera House for two shows in January 2020. Mark it in your calendars, friends.
If you were one of the lucky ones to score tickets the sold out show last year, you'll know what to expect come January: a stunning 360-degree stage, a live band, a team of incredibly choreographed dancers. Although this time, instead of singing and dancing to A Seat at the Table under a giant moon-like sphere, Solange will be performing her new album When I Get Home in Australia for the first time.
Featuring hits such as 'Way to the Show', 'Dreams' and 'Binz' — and collaborators such as Pharrell, Sampha, Gucci Mane and Tyler, the Creator — the album is an ode to Solange's hometown of Houston, Texas. It was released alongside a 33-minute art film of the same name, which you can watch on YouTube while you're waiting for her Aussie return.
While the stage will look a little different this time round, we're told to expect something similarly impressive. You can get a glimpse of what to expect from the new choreography, too, by checking out Solange's Instagram. All the $99 tickets have already sold out, so you're looking at paying at least $129 for a spot. The Sydney Opera House performances will be Solange's only Aussie shows, so, if you're interstate we suggest you start keeping an eye on cheap flights.
