GRAPHIC Festival Review: Sarah Blasko - Sydney Opera House (11.10.15)

Photo: Dan Boud.

On album number five, Sarah Blasko shimmies and struts to the language of love. Her recent show at the Sydney Opera House for Graphic Festival saw the world premiere and official preview of her latest offering. It was worlds apart from her previous concert at this iconic venue where she was backed by the Sydney International Orchestra. This time around it was about taut, indie pop tunes and celebrating a crazy little thing called love.

Australian songstress Sarah Blasko and Sydney composer Nick Wales have collaborated on an upcoming album Emergence. They've given us the first single, "Pain is a Number".

Album Review: Sarah Blasko - I Awake Live At Sydney Opera House (2014 LP)

Live albums are generally appreciated most by people who attended the actual gig as they provide a memento from the performance but also deliver the opportunity to relive the experience. Not to say that those who weren’t in attendance can’t enjoy such albums and in the case of Sarah Blasko and I Awake Live At Sydney Opera House , even those who weren’t front row centre can appreciate what must have been a theatrical event.
