Richard Clapton
Goodbye Tiger


Richard Clapton has announced his annual pilgrimage to the State Theatre in Sydney! Ralph, as he’s affectionately known, will perform hits from the Goodbye Tiger, as well as his myriad of hits, on Saturday, 31 August 2024.

Goodbye Tiger was Ralph’s fourth studio album and featured Down in the Lucky Country, Deep Water, Winter in Amsterdam, and of course – Goodbye Tiger.

Australian musicologist, Ian McFarlane, described Goodbye Tiger as Clapton’s, “most celebrated work, an album full of rich, melodic and accessible rock with a distinctly Australian flavour. It established Clapton’s reputation as one of the most important Australian songwriters of the 1970s.”

And important he is. With songs like Girls on the Avenue, I Am an Island, Capricorn Dancer, High Society, Blue Bay Blues, Glory Road and Angelou, he really is responsible for some of The Best Years of our Lives.
