Archie Roach - Tell Me Why
The Final Round: 1990 - 2020
15 May | Hamer Hall

Legendary songwriter and ‘voice of the Stolen Generations', Archie Roach AM, brings his life story to the stage in his final tour ever Tell Me Why.

This spectacular live concert celebrates his eponymous memoir and latest album. Roach will be joined onstage by his five-piece band, including award-winning jazz composer and improviser Paul Grabowsky and special guest Emma Donovan.

Tell Me Why is a captivating account of resilience, strength of spirit and great love. 30 years after the release of Roach's two-time ARIA Award winning album Charcoal Lane (1990), this work is an intimate, moving and often confronting musical journey through the iconic songwriter and activist's life.

Audience will hear seminal songs from his back catalogue alongside influential music from his youth and three new autobiographical songs written since completing his memoir.

Not many have lived a life as compelling as Archie Roach - from stolen child and teenage alcoholic to musical icon, social activist and First Nations leader. His story is an extraordinary odyssey through love and heartbreak, family and community, survival and renewal - and a testament to the healing power of music.

Roach was named 2020 Victorian Australian of the Year. He has also received a Human Rights Achievement Award for his iconic Stolen Generations song, ‘Took the Children Away'; a first for any songwriter.
