Fans can get ready to immerse themselves in the soulful rhythms and electrifying performances of Drive-By Truckers and the mesmerising acoustic melodies of Newton Faulkner.

These shows will provide a feast of musical artistry that transcends genres and captivates hearts. 

Newton Faulkner: The Wild Tour. Renowned for his virtuoso guitar skills and heartfelt vocals, Newton Faulkner’s intimate acoustic performances are an experience like no other. With his knack for infusing folk, pop, and soul influences, Faulkner’s music creates a captivating and introspective atmosphere. Fans can look forward to an evening of soul-southing tunes and soul-stirring lyrics as Newton Faulkner crafts a musical sanctuary on stage. 

Drive-By Truckers Australian Tour: Known for their distinctive blend of Southern rock, alt-country, and Americana, Drive-By Truckers have been setting stages ablaze with their raw energy and lyrical depth. Fans can expect to be treated to a spellbinding fusion of new hits and timeless classics. With their evocative storytelling and passionate performances, Drive-By Truckers are set to take audiences on a journey through the heart of American music. 

Tour Promoter Peter Noble OAM said today, “We are very proud to be presenting these artists, the first being the talented Newton Faulkner and then the fantastic live act of the Drive-By Truckers”. 

“We haven’t had the Drive-By Truckers out in Australia since 2009, so we’re thrilled to be able to be able to bring them back to Australia. They will certainly have a big impact on all who catch their show”.

“Newton last toured with Bluesfest Tours in 2018, and he’s a crowd favourite, so it’s great to have him tour Australia and play Bluesfest 2024 as well.
