One of Australia’s most loved and enduring acts The Black Sorrows play the Brunswick Ballroom on Thursday 22nd April for a special sit down dinner and show performance.

The Black Sorrows spent a lot of 2019 touring Europe and Australia following the release of Joe Camilleri’s 49th album, Citizen John, which debuted at #2 on the AIR Chart and #11 on the ARIA Album Chart in April 2019.

“Sometimes you hit a purple patch and you can do no wrong,” Joe says of the UK/Scandinavia leg of the tour, which found the Sorrows digging deep into the past as well as claiming new ground. “I know I’ve gotta do ‘Harley & Rose’. I’ve gotta do ‘Chained To The Wheel’. I’ve gotta do ‘Hit & Run’ or ‘Shape I’m In’ – and I do. I do those songs in a really heartfelt kind of way,” he says. “But some of the songs on Citizen John are really hitting home in the live environment. ‘Wednesday’s Child’, ‘Silvio’ and ‘Worlds Away’ are working really well and the band loves playing them. If the band loves playing them, you feel good about it and that shows.”

Another that’s found a life of its own on the road is ‘Lover I Surrender’, the new single from the album. “It’s a simple love song, a soul song,” says Joe. “Citizen John was a difficult record to make ‘cause some of the songs didn’t like each other. Most were kinda dark and every now and then you got a sweetheart. This is one of those.”

With more than 50 years of road behind him, the next gig is never something Joe takes lightly. Joe is one of our finest, don’t miss this show.
