Tickets are on sale now!
Tickets for Jim Lauderdale’s second Melbourne show at the Wesley Anne on Thursday March 9 are now on sale, with tickets for the first show on Tuesday March 7 almost sold out.
The additional Melbourne show announcement comes ahead of new music, with details of a special new album to be announced soon.
The two-time Grammy winning US singer-songwriter returns to Australia with the ‘Game Changer World Tour’ in March for a run of headline dates in Sydney, Melbourne and Castlemaine followed by performances at Port Fairy Folk Festival and CMC Rocks QLD Festival during his tenth visit to our shores.
“Australia has felt like a second home since my first visit back in 2002,” says Lauderdale. “The fans truly love music, they go deep, and I always feel so much love every time I play to Aussie audiences. I can’t wait to get back down under.”
An A-list Nashville songwriter, Lauderdale’s songs have helped sell millions of albums for artists like George Strait, The Chicks, Patty Loveless, Lee Ann Womack, Blake Shelton, Solomon Burke, Gary Allan and Vince Gill.

Classic songs like Where the Sidewalk Ends, You Don’t Seem to Miss Me, Hole in My Head, Halfway Down, We Really Shouldn’t Be Doing This and many more have come from his pen.
Rock singer-songwriter and media personality Ella Hooper will be a special guest on the Sydney and Melbourne shows, along with alt-country singer-songwriter Katie Brianna.
Lauderdale’s eclectic catalogue of albums runs the gamut of roots styles, from bluegrass to R&B to his first love, traditional country music, on his 35th album Game Changer. Too expansive, eclectic and creatively curious to fit into any prescribed genre boxes, he innovated what is now called Americana music, long before there was a term for it.
The McCartney-esque melodies sung in his aching high lonesome tenor, the fiercely authentic bluegrass songs with mind-expanding psychedelic lyrics… nothing about Lauderdale’s music can be reduced to a single influence, and no other songwriter would fuse these classic strains of tune-craft into such unexpected but satisfying combinations.
