Archie Roach, Tell Me Why - The Final Round

Legendary songwriter and ‘voice of the Stolen Generations’, Archie Roach AM, brings his life story to the stage in his final tour ever Tell Me Why.

This spectacular live concert celebrates his eponymous memoir and latest album. Roach will be joined onstage by his five-piece band, including award-winning jazz composer and improviser Paul Grabowsky and special guest Emma Donovan.

Tell Me Why is a captivating account of resilience, strength of spirit and great love. 30 years after the release of Roach’s two-time ARIA Award winning album Charcoal Lane (1990), this work is an intimate, moving and often confronting musical journey through the iconic songwriter and activist’s life.

Audience will hear seminal songs from his back catalogue alongside influential music from his youth and three new autobiographical songs written since completing his memoir.
