Tours: Darren Middleton, Dead Letter Circus, Delta Riggs

“It’s been a big challenge starting again, but I wouldn’t change a thing about these last couple of years,” Darren Middleton revealed in an exclusive op-ed on FL last year. A few months on from the release of his debut solo album, Translations, things are tracking well for the former Powderfinger guitarist who has just dropped new single ‘One Thing’ and is set to head out on a modest 15-date national tour next month. Kicking off with a support slot at Pete Murray’s Melbourne show on March 15 the tour proper gets underway in April and includes stops in Bacchus Marsh, Katoomba and Oakleigh.
