Five more Bluesfest 2019 acts have announced sideshows for next year to coincide with the Byron Bay Festival in March, 2019.
This includes Lukas Nelson and his band Promise Of The Real who have announced three headline shows. Nelson recently worked on the soundtrack for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s new movie A Star Is Born.
While Nelson has played Bluesfest before, this will be the first time Promise of the Real will play in Sydney and Melbourne.
Lukas Nelson is the son of Willie Nelson. Since 2015, Promise of the Real have been Neil Young’s regular backing band. To date, they have recorded two studio albums with Young – The Monsanto Years (2015) and The Visitor (2017) – alongside a soundtrack album, Paradox (2018), and a live album, Earth (2016).
Tickets for Promise Of The Real at The Factory Theatre, Marrickville on Thursday 18 April 2019 are on sale now.
