MISSY HIGGINS | THE SECOND ACT TOUR

Celebrating The Sound of White 20th Anniversary

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 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.

“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
