Tommy Emmanuel, the guitar legend from Australia, is coming to Muziekgebouw Eindhoven for an amazing concert! Tommy is considered to be one of the best guitarists in the world, and for good reason! He has worked with the greatest artists, such as Eric Clapton and John Denver, and was nominated for a Grammy Award twice.

What Tommy Emmanuel does solo would normally require three or more musicians. Who else can lay down the rhythm, play the riff and sing the melody on just one acoustic guitar, as Tommy does with songs like "Day Tripper"? With this concert, Tommy brings you a complete collection of his own songs, all rich in melody and his infectious cheerfulness and optimism.

Support act: Mike Dawes

Mike Dawes is hailed as one of the world's finest modern acoustic guitar players. He was voted 'Best Acoustic Guitarist in the World' by Total Guitar Magazine & MusicRadar twice consecutively. His solo music, littered with virtuoso nuances and micro-techniques, has seen him tour almost every continent on the planet. He has recorded with multiple grammy award-wining and Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inducted artists, featured on international film and TV (such as Better Call Saul) and achieved over 100 million music video hits online for his solo covers of songs

“When I was a kid, I wanted to be in show business. Now, I just want to be in the happiness business. I make music, and you get happy. That’s a good job.
