Passenger, aka Mike Rosenberg, can't keep away! The well-loved artist is returning to Australia at the end of the year for a run of theatre dates, winding up what has been a magnificent year for the UK singer songwriter. Having toured here twice already, once with Ed Sheeran and then again off his own back, Passenger is a name that we love over this way, and it's amazing to see others have finally cottoned on to it as well.

Passenger National Tour Sold out Nationally, New Dates Announced!
Ed Sheeran is an interesting character. The British singer songwriter has such a hold over popular music at the moment that has been fascinating to track; arriving at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre this evening, the amount of people lined up (and no doubt camped out) around the venue is only one small testament to the global star power the 22 year old redhead has at his disposal.
While he may love playing in the street Passenger (Mike Rosenberg) is heading back to the stage and back to Australia this March and April for a national tour.
Passenger will take his show to Melbourne (Mar 21), Hobart (Mar 24), Adelaide (Mar 27), Perth (Mar 30), Brisbane (Apr 3) and Sydney (Apr 6), with all tickets on sale now.
