To satisfy huge demand, Swedish duo First Aid Kit play a third and final Melbourne show on their Australian visit next April.

‘… tonight the dichotomy between guitarist Klara’s more gossamer like, honeyed lilt and elder sister and keyboard player Johanna’s darker delivery makes their harmonies all the more bewitching.’ Manchester Evening News

The Söderberg sisters have garnered worldwide success off the back of their critically acclaimed three studio albums and enthralling live performances. They have played at the world’s most iconic venues and festivals from Royal Albert Hall, the Ryman Auditorium and Radio City Music Hall to The Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Osheaga Festival and more.

In 2012, First Aid Kit’s song ‘Emmylou’ was named Rolling Stone magazine’s #10 single of the year. In the same year, the sisters were invited to perform seminal Simon & Garfunkel song ‘America’ for Polar Music Prize-winner Paul Simon, who defied convention to give the band a standing ovation. At the Polar Music Prize Awards a year earlier, the duo moved Patti Smith to tears with a stunning rendition of her song ‘Dancing Barefoot’. First Aid Kit now has a slew of live television performances under their belt, appearing on everything from Later with Jools Holland, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Graham Norton Show, the list goes on!

Last in Australia in 2015, First Aid Kit’s April 2018 tour will provide Australian fans with an opportunity to experience the band’s brand new music live, in the beautiful intimate acoustics of Elisabeth Murdoch Hall.
