Tim Freedman will re-emerge in March with a brand new solo show “Hot Autumn Nights 2021”.

After a sold out 35 date tour in November and December, this snappy run through the country will preview three more songs from The Whitlams’ forthcoming album “Gaffage and Clink”, and also premiere reworkings of some of his favourite tracks from Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Randy Newman.

Performing to limited capacities, and bringing a grand piano to most of the venues, Freedman will once again mix cabaret and rock in his own sardonic style.

The Daily Telegraph wrote of his November show at the City Recital Hall, “The tall and gangly front man charmed and cajoled his 400-strong “spaced out” audience with all the debonair flair of a Bryan Ferry….The stripped back accompaniment of the piano highlighted just how cleverly constructed his lyrics are – they sound so uncontrived, which is hellish difficult to do as any would-be songwriter will tell you.” (Steve Moffatt)
