Kasey Chambers To Celebrate 20th Anniversary Of Debut Album With Aussie Tour

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of her debut album, The Captain, Kasey Chambers will embark on a massive tour of Australia this year.

Following its release in May 1999, The Captain went on to peak at #1 on the Australian Albums chart, as well as score Chambers her first solo ARIA Awards for Best Country Album and Best Female Artist.

Sydney artist Charlie Collins, who will support Chambers on the tour, said the opportunity is “a dream come true”.

“When I was 10, Bill Chambers got me up on his show. I sung Kasey’s This Flower,” Collins said.

“Kasey joined me on stage that night and that feeling I got I will never forget. My idol, my hero, my inspiration. To be asked to join this tour is a dream come true. The Captain was one of the first records I bought and it changed my life.” 

General public tickets for the tour go on sale from 10am this Friday (10 May). For more details, click on theGuide or scroll down.
