Lisa Marie Presley to tour Australia

Lisa Marie Presley is bringing her Storm and Grace World Tour to Australia, her first shows in the country for eight years.

Lisa Marie Presley will return to Australia in March for her first shows Down Under in eight years.

Presley is heading to Australia as part of her Storm & Grace World tour.

In 2012 Presley released the Storm & Grace album, produced by T-Bone Burnett. It was her third album after To Whom It May Concern in 2003 and Now What in 2005.

She describes her first two albums as her "angry albums".

"I was angry at all that I was potentially up against - all the expectations - and I was puffing myself up as a protective mechanism," she said.

"At the same time, I was being pushed by the team around me to be a pop star, and to do all these crazy things that I really didn't want to do."

After Now What she semi-retired and left the US to live in the English countryside.

"I got rid of a lot of the toxicity around me, but I also lost a lot of my drive and love for songwriting," she said.

"The creativity was kind of wrung out of me."

The Storm & Grace world tour is helping raise money for her new charity partner World Vision.
