Fans have snapped up tickets to see Passenger live in Canberra at the Canberra Theatre Centre on Thursday, January 22 – in fact, the concert is a sell-out.
Passenger (Mike Rosenberg) is the voice of one of 2013’s most successful songs world-wide, “Let Her Go”, and he is touring Australia following the release of his recent album Whispers. The album is the Brighton-born singer/songwriter Passenger’s sixth studio album and even the songs most recently written have evolved by being played live dozens of times, at shows and on streets everywhere from Capetown to Canberra.
“This is easily the most ‘up’ album I’ve ever made,” says the 29 year old. “It’s quite cinematic. There are lots of big stories and big ideas. There are also some sombre moments about loneliness and death but, hey, it wouldn’t be a Passenger album without those. Mostly though, it’s a really positive album.”
Thousands, rather than hundreds, now come to his shows and know all of the words to most of his songs. Despite playing the big arenas these days he still continues to busk, as he has since he went solo in 2009. While the troubadour is playing to a large audience in Canberra, fans will still be rewarded with an intimate concert experience.
