Two EPIC albums, make one EPIC concert

Aussie legends Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier have just released their tenth acclaimed album The Words of Men.

The personal album is regarded as capturing one of Conway and Zygier's most creative bursts in their renowned 27 year collaboration. But 2019 also marks the 25th anniversary of their hit album and first musical collaboration Bitch Epic, featuring the single 'Alive & Brilliant', which is now a part of Australian sonic history.

 

To celebrate these two milestones, Conway and Zygier are hitting the road with the EPIC tour! The tour will kick off in Perth on Thursday 23 May 2019 at Astor Theatre. Tickets are now on sale for this one night only event!

Deborah Conway met Willy Zygier in October 1991 when she needed a guitarist to tour her debut solo album String of Pearls. They began a personal and professional relationship which has flourished for the last 27 years, producing 10 albums and 3 daughters.

Bitch Epic was their first creative output and what a successful one it was, a compelling collection of songs that spawned a number of radio hits including 'Alive & Brilliant', 'Today I Am a Daisy' and 'Consider This'.

The Words of Men was released in February 2019 and recorded live to capture the vitality and beauty of the chemistry Conway and Zygier share with their band.

The songs traverse a wide range of themes against the backdrop of the strange circumstances we find ourselves in as the 21st century progresses.

"We have very human concerns & we wanted to make a record that sounds human, with creaks and breaths and joy and passion," says Deborah. "A serious record made with fun or a fun record made seriously."

The EPIC tour provides an opportunity for Conway and Zygier to introduce audiences to this new remarkable collection of songs and to revisit their highest charting & ARIA Award-winning album.

 
EPIC is shaping up to be the concert event of the year! Tickets are now on sale for the Perth concert at Astor Theatre on Thursday 23 May 2019. Doors open at 7.00pm. Show time: 8:00pm.

Tickets are now on sale through Ticketek online and Ticketek outlets. All tickets are $67.10.
