Pegged as a (reluctant) generational spokesperson when Loser was released in 1994, Beck has continued to confound expectations during a career so far spanning three decades. For his first Australian tour in five years, Beck will arrive armed with Colors, his first full length offering since 2014’s Morning Phase took Album of the Year at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, as well as Best Rock Album and Best Engineered Album. Featuring the recent singles Dear Life, Wow and Up All Night, Colors unfolds in an intoxicating rainbow of auditory tricks and treats.
In addition to appearances on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and Later…With Jools Holland, Beck recently captivated sold-out North American audiences with “epic” (YAHOO) performances. The prolific musician also accepted U2’s invitation to appear as special guest on the September leg of The Joshua Tree Tour 2017, generating the most enthusiastic reviews of his live career.
