The A to Z Shows

The A to Z Shows
On September 27th Paul’s long-awaited memoir was released through Penguin Books, its genesis in a series of Spiegeltent concerts first staged in 2004. Those concert performances shaped the now famous A To Z shows.  From the little stories he told in between songs at those shows grew the book ‘How to Make Gravy’, and from the songs grew the accompanying 8 CD Box Set 'The A To Z Recordings'.

From November until April next year, Paul Kelly will tour The A To Z shows, performing 100 songs from his vast catalogue alphabetically over four consecutive nights in cities around the nation. These intimate acoustic performances will take place in Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, Canberra, Hobart, Darwin, Melbourne, Alice Springs and Adelaide. The tickets will be sold as either for individual nights, or as multi night bundles.


Expect nothing short of a playful and honest, insightful and intimate performance from Paul Kelly at these shows.
