Armed with his soaring and emotionally connective second album I Forget Where We Were, the award-winning English singer-songwriter Ben Howard returns to Australia. Ben Howard is what you might call a reluctant star. Despite achieving critical and commercial success with the release of his 2011 debut Every Kingdom, he's one to shy away from the limelight – choosing instead to craft an expansive LP that builds magnificently on his debut. I Forget Where We Were is a superlative return that cements Howard's place as one of the world's finest singer-songwriters – a genuine, if shy, star. With sell-out shows across Australia and the globe it's clear that this unassuming musician has found a unwavering place in the hearts and headphones of Aussie audiences. ** Ben Howard has announced he is rescheduling his upcoming Australian tour. He will now be playing at FAC on Wed 3 June.**If you have a ticket, this will be valid for the new date - simply turn up on the night and present your current ticket. If you're unable to make the show, you will be able to get a refund from your point of purchase. If that was online from Oztix email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you bought the ticket in person at FAC drop in and see us or call 9432 9555. More info at http://bit.ly/1wAQwP1

Breaking Cover is an exhibition of artworks by artists who served with the military in times of war.

Breaking Cover includes works by seventeen artists who turned to art making after military service, or were commissioned Official Australian War Artists, covering both World Wars, the Korean War and a peace keeping mission to the Solomon Islands in 2009.
