Theatre Royal, Castlemaine – Mia Dyson, Saturday, May 7

Off the back of the 17-year anniversary reissue of her ARIA award-winning 2005 album Parking Lots, Australian icon Mia Dyson was penned to perform a run of Australian dates this November.
Due to Covid restrictions, Mia has had to postpone all of her upcoming shows but is thrilled to return home in early 2022 to celebrate the milestone with Central Highlands fans.


“I’m sorry to say we had to reschedule the Parking Lots tour again. Everyone has been doing it tough during Covid, especially our beloved live music venues. I think this time, we really will get to play the Parking Lots album for you and celebrate the 15th (well…now 17th) anniversary of its release. I can’t wait to return to Australia to see you and play.”
In her two-decade long career, Mia Dyson has been nominated for five ARIA awards with Parking Lots taking out Best Blues and Roots Album in 2005. She was the inaugural recipient of Double J’s Artist Of The Year at the 2014 J Awards following the release of her Australian classic LP Idyllwild, and has had four albums up for AIR Awards with The Moment earning her a nomination for Song Of The Year at the 2013 APRA Awards. Mia Dyson’s extensive career has seen her support the likes of Stevie Nicks, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt and Joe Cocker, and most recently touring extensively with her supergroup Dyson, Stringer & Cloher.
Heading back into the studio in 2020 to revisit five songs from the album, Mia’s Parking Lots (Revisited) EP sheds new light on a selection of her favourite cuts from the record. From the single Roll Me Out to the homage of motherly love on Rivers Wide, and the simple, captivating title track, the empowering Choose and crowd pleaser I Meant Something To You Once, the EP captures highlights of a great album, which still stands up pretty well 17 years on. Mia will be with her band, with material from her whole career sure to feature.
