Marking Mary Black’s retirement from touring, Ireland’s top female singer says goodbye to her fans on this side of the world for the first time in four years with The Last Call Australia tour.
The touring performance of her latest album Down The Crooked Road will be in Brisbane for one night in the Queensland Performing Arts Centre’s (QPAC’s) Concert Hall on Tuesday 15 March.
For more than a quarter-century, singer Mary Black has been a dominant presence in Irish music, both at home and abroad. She has released 11 studio albums all of which achieved platinum sales status. She has shared stages, TV shows and recording studios with some of the top performers of her time. She has also played a front-line role in bringing Irish music, past and present, to an increasingly appreciative and ever-growing global audience.
Black described her feelings about the tour in a message posted on her website last year.
“Music has been so good to me, I’ve loved touring the world for the last 30 years. I have made so many friends and have countless fond memories from different corners of the globe.
“So to my fans everywhere I’d like to thank you and let you know that I hope to get back again to all my favourite places in 2015/2016, for one final tour; the last call Australia, le gach dea-ghuí (with every good wish/prayer)”, said Black.
