News : Neil Hilborn announces first ever Australian tour

By on August 14, 2017

NEIL HILBORN is single-handedly bringing poetry to the mainstream.

The Viral poet has garnered critical acclaim with over 60 million views of his internationally successful poems including ‘OCD’, ‘Joey’, ‘The Future’ and author of Amazon bestseller ‘Our Numbered Days’

NEIL HILBORN is a poet of the people: his work is accessible, honest, and he has undoubtedly left a deep impact in the history of contemporary poetry.

For the first time ever Australian fans will get their chance to witness NEIL HILBORN live this December, and to say he is excited about the tour is an understatement.

How incredible is it that I’ve wanted to see Australia for so long, and now I get to travel there and perform my work. Life is pretty cool sometimes. I’ve wanted to hug a wombat since I was eight years old, and now it’s going to happen. Oh and I guess I’ll perform some poems too. If you had asked me five years ago if I thought poetry would bring me to Australia, I’d have said there’s no way. Now here we are, and here I go.”

NEIL HILBORN tickets go on sale Thursday 17 August, 9am local.
