Asia Pacific solo tour begins August 6 in Australia

[updated 20 August 2014]

As part of Vienna’s Kickstarter campaign last year, she promised to tour the Asia Pacific region for the first time if the last stretch goal was met—and fans came through in spades, finishing the campaign with over 1,450 backers!

Vienna will perform solo in seven countries throughout the month of August, starting in Australia on August 6. Along the way she’ll join forces with jazz singer-songwriter Carsie Blanton, foot-stomping folk trio The Bollands, and many friends both old and new. (Organizing this tour has been an adventure in itself—special thanks to The Bollands, Keiji Matsumoto, Corey Takimoto, and Requiem Rising for all their amazing help over the past few months.)
