YOU ARE NEVER ALONE WITH DIRTY THREE The wait is over. Prayers have been answered; 5 years since their last whistle stop visit and 12 years since that last national tour, Warren Ellis, Mick Turner and Jim White aka DIRTY THREE finally return. Already announced as a marquee act at Melbourne’s Rising Festival, Mick, Jim and Warren will bring their collective energies to venues in Canberra, Thirroul, Sydney, Fremantle, Adelaide, Hobart, Brisbane and Byron Bay this June. "What joy to kick off the tour for our new album “Love Changes Everything “ in Melbourne Australia for the Rising Festival. Recorded in 5 days. Mixed in a year. Nothing has changed. Older and meaner, sadder and totally dangerous. Dirty Three are Thirty Three years old. Come blow out the candles and help us stick a knife in the cake." – Warren Ellis, London 2024 The trio that paints notes like stars in the sky. Back with new compositions to play and new stories to tell. They don’t get together very often these days. But to see them perform is to witness three men shoulder-deep in the task. The aching splendour. The meandering beauty. The mammoth swirl. "For two hours, Dirty Three were the greatest band on any planet in any universe." – Sydney State Theatre review (FBi) "It’s impossible to find flaw with the performance, though its x factor is something collectively felt. A kind of accruing, song by fiery song, of irrefutable proof as to how truly great this band is." – Sydney Opera House review (The Guardian) “Their songs, you know, maybe saved someone’s life.” They’re one of the world’s greatest living bands without a shadow of a doubt … It speaks straight to your heart.” – Jen Cloher (musician) Don’t miss the greatest live band on the planet.

YOU ARE NEVER ALONE WITH DIRTY THREE

The wait is over. Prayers have been answered; 5 years since their last whistle stop visit and 12 years since that last national tour, Warren Ellis, Mick Turner and Jim White aka DIRTY THREE finally return.

Already announced as a marquee act at Melbourne’s Rising Festival, Mick, Jim and Warren will bring their collective energies to venues in Canberra, Thirroul, Sydney, Fremantle, Adelaide, Hobart, Brisbane and Byron Bay this June.

“What joy to kick off the tour for our new album “Love Changes Everything “ in Melbourne Australia for the Rising Festival. Recorded in 5 days. Mixed in a year. Nothing has changed. Older and meaner, sadder and totally dangerous. Dirty Three are Thirty Three years old. Come blow out the candles and help us stick a knife in the cake.” – Warren Ellis, London 2024

The trio that paints notes like stars in the sky. Back with new compositions to play and new stories to tell. They don’t get together very often these days. But to see them perform is to witness three men shoulder-deep in the task.

The aching splendour. The meandering beauty. The mammoth swirl.

“For two hours, Dirty Three were the greatest band on any planet in any universe.” – Sydney State Theatre review (FBi)

“It’s impossible to find flaw with the performance, though its x factor is something collectively felt. A kind of accruing, song by fiery song, of irrefutable proof as to how truly great this band is.” – Sydney Opera House review (The Guardian)

“Their songs, you know, maybe saved someone’s life.” They’re one of the world’s greatest living bands without a shadow of a doubt … It speaks straight to your heart.” – Jen Cloher (musician)

Don’t miss the greatest live band on the planet.

Ladies & gentleman, from Melbourne Australia; Dirty Three.
