IRON & WINE! Announces Headline National Australian Tour May/June 2018 (Handsome Tours)

Handsome Tours is proud to announce headline shows from Sam Beam aka Iron & Wine, who brings his soul-infused folk rock to Australian shores with his full band this May/June.

Through the course of six studio albums, numerous EPs and singles, Iron & Wine has captured the emotion and imagination of listeners with distinctly cinematic songs. With a live band featuring acoustic guitars, percussion, keys, cello, and bass, Iron & Wine’s music has been compared to that of Nick DrakeJackson BrowneElliott Smith and Neil Young.

Over 15 years since his bedroom folk breakthrough The Creek Drank the Cradle and his scene-stealing cover of Such Great Heights in Garden StateSam Beam will now lead a full band as Iron & Wine, taking to the stage for an expansive journey through his rustic masterpiece The Shepherd's Dog, the chart-topping Kiss Each Other Clean, r 'n' b inflected Ghost on Ghost and 2017’s reflective Grammy-nominated album Beast Epic.

From haunting, stripped-back performances alongside Glen Hansard to more panoramic collaborations with the likes of the Mariachi-wielding CalexicoBeam has rewritten his nom de plume as a sonic shape shifter ever-anchored by his signature high tenor voice – handpicked and introduced to millions by Kristen Stewart as the slow-dance soundtrack to Twilight.

Taking place in premier venues around the counts, the glorious folk music of Iron & Wine is not to be missed, live in concert this May/June.
