Acclaimed singer-songwriter Archie Roach will perform songs from his upcoming album at a special Melbourne concert on October 29.

Roach’s new album Let Love Rule will be released on November 11.

But he will give fans a special preview of the album at a concert at the Elisabeth Murdoch Hall at the Melbourne Recital Centre this month.

His guests at the performance will be emerging Indigenous singer-songwriters Corey Theatre and The Dhungala Children’s Choir.

Roach is back in Australia after his first European tour in a decade. The tour included a performance with Australian guitarist Tommy Emmanuel at the Inter celtique Festival de Lorient in Brittany, France, two shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and a performance in Monaco at the Musee de Oceangraphique de Monaco, surrounded by art by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Papua New Guinea artists.

Roach also took the opportunity to visit the Scottish Highlands to fulfil a promise to his late foster father, Alexander Cox.

Tickets to the Melbourne concert are available through the Melbourne Recital Centre website at www.melbournerecital.com.au/events/2016/archie-roach/.
