ICONIC singer songwriter Paul Kelly is taking his latest album on the road, to the delight of his fans.

The Melbourne troubadour's 23rd studio album, Life is Fine, delivered Kelly a remarkable career milestone -  his first ever number one on the ARIA Albums Chart last week.

Despite a distinguished 40-year career that has seen Kelly chalk up multi-platinum sales, numerous ARIA Awards and an ARIA Hall Of Fame induction in 1997, the No 1 had been elusive.

Kelly's 16-date Life is Fine tour starts in Darwin on November 4 and takes in the regional centres of Cairns, Townsville, Rockhampton and Coffs Harbour.

Steve Earle and Middle Kids will support Kelly in Brisbane, while folk duo Busby Marou will play the Darwin, Cairns, Townsville and New Zealand Shows. The Sunshine Coast's Sahara Beck will support him at the Rockhampton show.

Pre-sale tickets for Frontier Members go on sale this Wednesday at noon AEST. Tickets go on sale to the general public next Monday, August 28 at noon local time.
