Performing as part of the Sydney's City Recital Hall series Singular Voices - Robert Forster is one of Australia’s most literate songwriters, with a solo repertoire drawn from a deep well of ideas and imagery, delivered in a conversational tone and impossible beautiful melodies.
Performing back-to-back with Forster is Peter Milton Walsh, a mythic figure in Australian music and elusive émigré, whose distinguished catalogue is a treasure trove of gorgeous, literate pop songs hailed as equals to Burt Bacharach, Jacques Brel and Serge Gainsbourg.
Singular Voices is a momentous occasion, with Robert Forster and Peter Milton Walsh sharing the stage for the first time in 43 years. Fans of The Go‐Betweens and The Apartments will not quite believe their luck.
Life Begins Again - Solo and acoustic, Robert Forster performs a tailor-made setlist of songs from 1978 to 2021.
Dubbed “the truest and strangest poet of his generation”, Forster is a statesman of Australian indie music. Seven solo records and co-founder of one of Australia’s most prolific bands in the 1980s (The Go-Betweens), he returns to the streets of his town for one night only.
"I’m ready to leave home. To re-engage with what I enjoy doing most. It will be the beginning of 2022, and I have just two shows booked for the year. Thankfully, one of them is in Brisbane. Life begins again."
Reacquaint yourself with Forster's iconic repertoire, as he travels through the pages of his weighty songbook.
