Only days after a surprise busking appearance on the streets of Melbourne, beloved artist Missy Higgins is set to return to the live stage in a big way, announcing a one-off headline performance at the renowned Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

Detailed this morning, the forthcoming concert will serve as Higgins’ first major performance since early in 2020, though a recent smaller gig went down in Albury just last month.

Taking place on Wednesday, January 27th, the show will serve as part of the nascent Live at The Bowl concert series, which will see Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl host a three-month festival featuring an all-local program of music, comedy, family-friendly events, and more, with performances from Ocean Alley, Birds of Tokyo, Human Nature, and Lime Cordiale already confirmed.

Supported by special guests Busby Marou, the gig will be held in a COVID-safe manner, with only 3,000 tickets being made available to the show –  75% reduction of the venue’s usual capacity.

“It’s beyond exciting to me that the live music scene is opening up again, I’ve really missed it,” Higgins said in a statement. “Starting 2021 off by playing at one of the most iconic Melbourne venues is going to be pretty special, I can’t wait.”

Missy Higgins last released an album by way of 2018’s Solastalgia, while a number of singles have appeared in the last year, including “Song for Sammy”, “Carry You” for Tim Minchin’s Upright, and November’s “When the Machine Starts”.

Tickets to Missy Higgins’ Sidney Myer Music Bowl performance go on sale from 12pm AEDT on Wednesday, December 16th.
