Pete Murray – Australia's folk-rock superstar

Buy or sell Pete Murray tickets on StubHub and enjoy one of the most successful acoustic folk artists to come from Down Under.
Carrying on a proud legacy of Australian singer-songwriters
You can hear the echoes of so many great Australian artists in the music of Pete Murray. He cites the likes of Bob Dylan, Nick Drake and Neil Young as his biggest influences, but those are really just the obvious ones that will catch the imagination of any budding songwriter with an acoustic guitar and something meaningful to say to the world. Pete Murray is more closely related to some of the legendary Australian singers who've touched audiences’ hearts with their finely observed ballads about love and loss. His keen emotional insight recalls the solo work of former Bad Seed, Mick Harvey, and his finely etched sketches of Australian life that form the backdrop for his musical stories remind you of the likes of Paul Kelly. These facets of his music struck an instant rapport with Australian folk-rock and pop fans, propelling his debut album to the top of the Australian mainstream charts, breaking the platinum sales barrier six times over. His next two albums achieved the same chart success and multi-platinum status, making Pete Murray tickets some of the most sought-after items on the Aussie live music scene for many years.
Combining folk music with health and wellness
Pete Murray's biggest commercial successes were in the mid- to late-2000s, and while his further albums haven't reached the same heights, he has widened his musical activities, undertaking low-key international tours to bring his live show to audiences more far afield. He joined up with Paul Langlois and Rob Baker of veteran Canadian rock outfit The Tragically Hip on a tour of their home country. Back in Australia, he has branched into more esoteric fields, creating a series of "Music and Movement Escapes" – weekend retreats that combine music with sport and other health and wellness activities. While it may appear surprising that a folk singer would cross over into a realm so far removed from the tranquillity we associate with this kind of music, let's not forget that before he became famous, Pete Murray was an avid rugby player and swimmer. In that sense, he's a thoroughly modern folk singer for the new health conscious generation, which is a definite (and rather inevitable) departure from the lifestyles of his original folk heroes! Whether you want to watch him in concert, or join him on a fitness and music retreat, you can find all the Pete Murray tickets you want on StubHub.
