Greetings everyone. I just wanted to let you know that I am going to play a couple of support shows in Berlin, Copenhagen and Madrid with my friend Jairo from De Pedro.
They will be short solo acoustic sets and I’ll be playing a whole lot of new songs (and some old ones) that I have been working on. I haven’t been to either Germany of Denmark for about 10 years so I am looking forward to getting back there. So if you are around drop in and say hi.
Also, shortly we’ll be announcing some shows in Australia at the end of January so stay tuned.

Bernard has confirmed he will headline the evening off-track entertainment at the 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix on Saturday 15 March.
Fanning will take to the stage following Formula 1® Qualifying with the concert free for all Saturday ticket holders. A lifelong Formula 1® fan, he is looking forward to entertaining the crowds after an action-packed day on the track.
“Performing at the GP is going to be a fun way for us to wrap up touring for Departures,” Fanning said.
Australian Grand Prix Corporation CEO, Andrew Westacott, looks forward to welcoming him back to Albert Park.
“Bernard blew the crowd away when he performed at the event in 2010 with Powderfinger and it is fair to say he is back by popular demand!” Westacott said.
