Premier Artists presented Kasey Chambers in her Bittersweet Tour that hit Adelaide at Her Majesty's Theatre on March 21st. The tour that was set to commence in 2014 was postponed due to doctor's orders after Chambers was told she has nodes.
The Aria award-winning artist holds 20 Golden Guitars in her name. Her tour 'Bittersweet' showcases her new album of the same name. It has seen her recognised for two Aria nominations for 'Best Female Artist' and 'Best Country Album'.
Chambers is the most down to earth country artist stopping her show to catch up with a fan she met earlier that day at Sushi Train. She bursts into laughter while singing the song If I Had A Pony on the lyrics 'When I grow up I'll be a lady' and stops to tell the audience she always think of her mother on that line of the song, as her mother tells her she can't wear dresses on stage as she doesn't stand like a lady.
Fans didn't have to wait long to hear Not Pretty Enough as it was the third song and got a loud cheer at the end. She produced songs from all her albums starting with The Captain up to her current tour album Bittersweet by singing the song of the same name she wrote with Bernard Fanning.
She was touring with a duo of boys she met in NSW in a pub. She knew their talent was wasted there and brought them on tour to get them recognition. She speaks highly of her children and even tells a story of her oldest son who lives part-time with his father. She says "Are you confused as to whether you believe in God because one of your parents does and one doesn't? He replies 'No, when I'm at your house I believe and when I'm at Dad's I don't'." She says "If that works for him who am I to tell him any differently?"
She's just beautiful, what you see is what you get and I don't think I've ever gotten to know an artist so much in a tour like this before. My favourite part was when she announced her mother is out in the foyer selling merchandise and her father Bill Chambers is up there right next to her on stage. He then took to the microphone for a solo. She finished the show doing an encore of her fans' choice.
