Monday 11th July, 2016 11:59AM

Australian solo artists Ben Salter and Dan Kelly are pairing up to cross the ditch for a nine-date tour of New Zealand kicking off this Wednesday. For his part Salter (who has played with The Gin Club, The Young Liberals, Giants Of Science) will be returning to these shores off-the-back of releasing his second solo album The Stars In My Destination. And from Kelly's corner, he will be bringing songs from his most recent offering L​eisure Panic​, which was short­listed for the Australian Music Prize. And of course the two troubadours will play songs from their respective back-catalogues as well as possibly delving into each other's tunes. Here are the tour details...

Ben Salter and Dan Kelly tour NZ July 2016.

Ben Salter - mystical, forthright, deep and charming; a modern folk hero - teams up with Dan Kelly, purveyor of emotional psychedelic dystopian comedy and social satire, for a double headline tour of New Zealand this July. For the ages.

Ben will play songs from last year's magnificent, critically adulated and psychically attenuated 'The Stars My Destination' LP, plus his old stuff, plus popular classics from The Inkspots, Edward Elgar and Bobby Darin.

Dan will charm your all five senses (all of them) by singing tunes from his sensibly sought after Coastal Mind Epic™ 'Leisure Panic' plus anything else you request from his extensive back catalogue.

They may also play a few tracks together.

This will be an adventure akin to the great fantasy epics from Tolkein to Peake to Iain M Banks. If you come they will sing and dance and play guitar for you and do drum machines too.
