Pete Murray comes to woo his fans

QUEENSLANDERS proved their loyalty and love for Pete Murray this month after the singer-songwriter returned to the Sunshine State to woo fans with new sounds from his fourth album, Blue Sky Blue.

And his stop at Rockhampton's Great Western Hotel was no disappointment, with the crowd enjoying both the new songs and old classics that put him on the map many years ago.

Pete was fresh from touring Europe and launched straight into the special run of Queensland shows, stopping in Bundaberg, Rockhampton, Airlie Beach, Townsville and Cairns, and finishing up at Brisbane's The Tivoli.

Pete's Bundaberg show made headlines last week after he was welcomed into the town by people waving the finger at him.

But the artist made light of the situation at his show by getting the audience to give him the town welcome while videotaping it.

It will be a much-anticipated return for Pete.
