Presented by Sydney Opera House
20th Anniversary of Veneer - Bewitching and, at times, deeply moving a heartfelt sharing of humanity in all its vulnerability.

Ended on Friday, 26 May 2023

Returning to Australia for the first time since his sold-out 2018 Sydney Opera house show, master singer-songwriter José González celebrates the 20th anniversary of the album that launched him, 2003's indie folk classic, Veneer.

A sublime take on the singer-songwriter sound, José González's 2003 album Veneer is more than just a classic of introspective folk pop – it's become part of the fabric of modern life.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of his breakthrough record, the virtuoso guitarist is returning to the Sydney Opera House for three Australian exclusive solo shows, performing the songs from Veneer – and more than a few other classics.

Born in Sweden to Argentine parents, González emerged from the indie rock scene to take flight with his solo debut, Veneer, a stunning collection of hushed, intricate acoustic songs that he recorded alone in his tiny Gothenburg apartment.
Powered by the hit “Crosses” and González's delicate cover of The Knife's “Heartbeats”, the album became an unexpected international smash and won a Swedish Grammy. More hits and critical acclaim followed with In Our Nature (2007), Vestiges & Claws (2015) and Local Valley (2021), while González dazzled audiences with his live performances – including hotly-anticipated, sold-out shows at the Sydney Opera House in 2016 and 2018.
