Australian sweetheart Lisa Mitchell has just announced a show in Cairns.

The singer-songwriter will play at the Tanks on Saturday July 31 ahead of her new album’s release.

Her Cairns performance is Mitchell’s only visit to Queensland in a handful of upcoming regional shows, which are yet to be announced.


The pandemic and Melbourne/Narrm’s marathon lockdown pressed pause on the recording of her fourth studio album, originally due out in earlier this year.

Mitchell’s upcoming tour is a road-test of her new work and new band, and something that’s been eagerly anticipated by fans since her last album release in 2016.  

All three of Lisa's albums to date have landed in the Top 10 of the ARIA Albums Chart, with her Platinum-certified debut album Wonder (2009) peaking at #6 and awarded the prestigious Australian Music Prize.

2012's Bless This Mess came in at #7 and 2016's Warriors hit #9.

Lisa Mitchell's public career began with the 2006 season of Australian Idol, in which the sixteen-year-old finished sixth.  

Her music is known to inspire emotional responses, whether it's the beguiling melodies and hushed folk-tones of ‘Pirouette’, or wrapped-up in subtle electro beats like those in The Boys.

But at its core, it's Lisa's pure, tender vocal that remains the focal point of her songs.

Tickets are on sale now via Ticketlink.
