“The last time we were in Australia was just before the pandemic,” Go West said in a joint press statement, “so this tour is long overdue.  We always enjoy playing across Australia and it will be extra special this year as we tour alongside our mate, Nik Kershaw. We look forward to seeing you all in March 2024!”

The excitement was shared by Kershaw, who added in a statement of his own: “[I’m] looking forward to getting back to Australia after so many years. We always have such a good time playing across the country. See you all in March next year!”

Meanwhile, Lawrence returned to the spotlight last month when she released her first new tune for the year, an emotional jaunt called 5 Years Of You. In announcing its release, she described the track as her “heartfelt, self-penned song about my five-year-old starting school, and all of the emotions that go with life’s changes and big milestones”.

It followed her sole release for 2023: the standalone single Live A Country Song, for which Countrytown premiered the official music video.
