Citizens Are Playing in Sydney, January 31 – One Night Only

Citizens band

After what’s been a long wait for fans, Citizens are returning to Australia for a once-only show in Sydney, on January 31.

Since the Seattle-based indie-alt gospel band last graced Aussie shores three years ago, they’ve been busy touring and recording, releasing their 2020 album, The Joy of Being, followed by their EP, A Thousand Shores, in 2022, featuring the single Everything and More.

Formerly known as Citizens & Saints, the band was originally birthed out of Mars Hills Church, publisher of their debut album, until lead singer Zach Bolen resigned from Mars Hill in 2014 – and since then, they’ve released six further albums through record labels, all in their trademark heartfelt, gospel-hearted, storytelling style.

Zach, Brian, Connor, Adam and Daniel will appear at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville for a night of songs and stories. Don’t miss this once-only opportunity. Book your tickets now.
