With six dates across Sydney and Melbourne almost entirely sold out, it’s clear there’s just a bit of demand to see Patti Smith and Her Band when they roll into our country for Bluesfest this year.

Despite the clear love for her here (and everywhere), Bluesfest have today announced that her newly-announced show will be her last ever in the country, and that she’ll be joined by a very special guest.

Singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett has received the honour of supporting the legendary songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer at the April 20 show, which will take place at the classic Festival Hall in Melbourne.

These shows were already in high demand, being her first in the country in eight years, but now carry even more weight to them in the wake of the announcement. You now have just one final opportunity in both Sydney and Melbourne to grab a spot, and tickets for the final show are on sale Monday January 23 through Ticketmaster.
