Robert Forster with Blank Statements

Tickets $32.50+BF/$35 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM


With the memoir to his friend and co-founder of The Go-Betweens, Grant McLennan finally out, Robert Forster is picking up his acoustic guitar and heading out to play a couple of special solo shows.

“Grant & I” is an extraordinary portrait of an intense, creative and sometimes fraught friendship that represented a genuine meeting of artistic minds. Paul Kelly describes it as “an odyssey of friendship, ambition and the struggle of art. Clear eyed and compelling”.

The memoir was released on the back of Robert’s stunning solo album “Songs To Play” that received world wide acclaim.

“Tall Go-Between walks to his own beat with grace, wit and style” Rolling Stone 4 stars

“Returned revitalised, buoyed by young blood and new possibilities, reinvigorated by life, art and music” Uncut 9/10

For these special shows Robert will be playing songs from “Songs To Play” as well as delving into his vast back catalogue including some Go-Betweens gems.
