Missy Higgins: The Second Act Tour 2024 at Canberra Theatre Centre has been rescheduled to 7–8 August 2024. We have contacted ticketholders with details. If you have any further questions, please email canberra.ticketing@act.gov.au.

MISSY HIGGINS is unveiling ‘an anniversary tour with a difference’ to celebrate 20 years since her trailblazing debut, The Sound Of White.

The Second Act Tour will see Missy touring theatres nationally next autumn in a special two act show. The first set each evening will include some brand-new songs, plus a few fan favourites from early in her career, all played in stripped back, acoustic mode. After an intermission Missy will then return with her full band to perform The Sound Of White in its entirety plus some of her other hits. The Sound Of White is one of the biggest and most influential albums in Australian music history. The intensely introspective collection of yearning songs yielded bona fide classics like 'Scar', 'Ten Days' and 'The Special Two'. It has sold a million copies and received 6 ARIA Awards. Over the last 20 years The Sound Of White has also inspired dozens of young Australian women – including major artists like Amy Shark, Gretta Ray, Gordi and Angie McMahon – to follow in Missy’s footsteps and sing their own songs in their own ways. Don’t miss the special return of Missy Higgins. PLEASE NOTE: YOUR TICKETS FOR MISSY HIGGINS WILL ONLY BECOME AVAILABLE 72 HOURS BEFORE THE PERFORMANCE, VIA THE DELIVERY METHOD OUTLINED IN YOUR ORDER CONFIRMATION EMAIL.

Quotes

“I wrote all those songs in my late teens when I never thought anyone would hear them, so they were very personal, like I was writing my secrets in a diary”, I did less of that on later albums for lots of reasons but lately I realised I’d gone back to that confessional mode of songwriting. I guess it’s been my way of dealing with the end of my marriage. So I feel like I’ve come full circle … I was starting life from scratch at 20 and now, like lots of people, I’m figuring out how to start life all over again at 40.”  – Missy Higgins

 “The incredible success of The Sound Of White was not just in its sales figures, as impressive as they were. Missy Higgins was something bigger. With her talent, honesty and unapologetic Australianness, she was a signpost for so many artists that followed. The number of local singers and songwriters I’ve interviewed over time who have told me that Missy, and especially that debut album, was the reason they picked up an instrument and started singing in the first place is mind-boggling. Her success crosses the gender divide too. We’ve had plenty of male rock groups in our Like A Version studio wanting to cover Missy songs. Dear Seattle’s cover of ‘The Special Two’ for instance made it into the Hottest 100 of Like A Version this year. So Missy inspired that next generation of artists in a way you don’t see very often. And she’s kept showing music fans that it wasn’t just a time-and-place success story either through the other releases that have come for her over the past 20 years.” – Richard Kinsgmill
