“He’s a hardworking renaissance man with music in his fingers and a fire in his soul, which made for a unique, ferociously entertaining concert” – AXS

Colin Hay has today announced a 2nd and final show on his Fierce Mercy Tour has been added at the Melbourne Recital Centre commencing at 5.00pm on
Sunday, 11 February 2018.  Colin Hay, best known as the frontman for hit makers Men at Work, has received international acclaim for his troubadour-style solo career with the release of his acclaimed new album, Fierce Mercy. He is returning to Australia next January/February, with his US band, for an East Coast tour commencing on 31 January at the Tivoli Theatre in Brisbane.

Alongside the thoughtful storytelling in his songs, Hay’s shows are peppered with hilarious anecdotes from his, often surreal, experiences in the world of rock music.
“Hay masterfully attaches shimmering diamonds of hope and happiness to a backdrop of omnipotent bleakness, a combination familiar throughout his extensive
body of work” – Nashville Scene

Fierce Mercy, Hay’s 13th solo album, was recorded in Los Angeles and Nashville and mixed by Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Jack White) and Gordon Hammond
(Buddy Miller, Don Williams). The album explores themes of love and loss, mortality, and even the odd UFO sighting, but always with the singular perspective
and insight that define Hay’s work. The Fierce Mercy Tour sees Colin return to Australia with his US Band – on guitar, tres and vocals, Cuban, San Miguel Perez, with fellow Cuban Yosmel Montejo on bass and vocals – Scheila Gonzalez on keyboard, flute, sax and vocals – Cecilia Noel, percussion and vocals – and Jimmy Branly on drums. This smorgasbord of international flavours, added to Men at Work and Colin Hay songs, will delight audiences with Latin infused rhythms and sweet harmonies.

Fans seeking tickets for Colin’s shows are reminded to only buy tickets from the official ticket agents listed below so as to avoid “reselling” sites such as Viagogo
who typically advertise heavily online and often mislead consumers into paying much higher prices than necessary.

General public tickets for the new Melbourne Recital Hall show go on sale at 10.00am local time, Monday, 13 November 2017. On Friday, 10 November
exclusive pre-sales for Colin Hay fan club members and Ticketmaster members will begin at 10.00am and close at 9.00am on 13 November.

Fierce Mercy is out now through Sony Music Australia.
