“When I saw Damien play that night literally changed my life” - Ed Sheeran

Damien Rice is back in a big way.
The beloved Irish singer-songwriter, whose emotionally wrought songs defined a generation of 21st-century heartache, is riding high on a sold-out international comeback tour, and he's set to return to Australia for his long-awaited Sydney Opera House debut in the Concert Hall.

Rocketing to stardom on the strength of his 2002 debut O, and its enduring favourites “The Blower's Daughter,” “Volcano” and “Cannonball,” the Dublin-born multi-instrumentalist collected the Shortlist Music Prize and quickly earned a reputation for his powerful live shows – tough and tender performances that saw him develop an intimate rapport with fans.
Rice's follow-up, 2006's 9, yielded the global smash “9 Crimes,” while his self-imposed absence following 2014's My Favourite Faded Fantasy – his most recent album to date – only added to the anticipation among fans for his return.

As his recent performances in the UK attest, Rice has lost none of his cathartic power or stage presence.
If anything, his combination of raw melodrama and masterful dynamics has grown more accomplished, sprinkled with a newfound sense of personal zen and laced, as ever, with Rice's wonderfully self-deprecating sense of humour. He has been missed.
