Just announced: Courtney Barnett will be opening for Patti Smith at Festival Hall in Melbourne on April 20th. Patti Smith will be concluding a five-date Australian tour, and this show is expected to be her last ever in Australia. A longtime fan, Courtney Barnett performed Patti Smith's 1975 album Horses in full at a Melbourne show in late 2015, and this morning Courtney posted the show poster on her Instagram saying "Dreams can come true." This is also Courtney Barnett's only Australian show currently scheduled for 2017.
