SummerSalt – The Cat Empire & Xavier Rudd

SummerSalt with special performances by The Cat Empire  & Xavier Rudd

 
Celebrated as one of the world’s energetic festival bands and party powerhouses, The Cat Empire continue to deliver a spectacular live show. To this day, they remain fiercely independent and are one of the most successful mash ups of jazz, funk, and world music that Australia has ever seen. They’ve had hit singles and headlined festivals around the globe, placing them as one of the country’s biggest and most notable live bands. 2016 saw their Rising With The Sun album debut at No. 1 on both the National ARIA & AIR charts, Top 10 in six other countries and then Top 20 in 16 countries around the world, along with a global debut at No. 9 on the iTunes worldwide chart. Their last international tour saw them play to over a quarter of a million people throughout Europe, North and South America, Australia and Asia. Their varied and exploratory approach to music has brought together a global army of fans of all ages. The Cat Empire experience is inimitable and unforgettable all at once.
Since the very beginning, Xavier Rudd’s ability to connect with people has been his most powerful gift. The more he has toured the world, the more hearts he has touched and the more of the world he has put back into his music. Hailed as one of Australia’s most proficient multi-instrumentalists, Xavier Rudd continues to enthral audiences worldwide. In 2016, Xavier topped the charts in the Netherlands with his single Follow the Sun, achieving platinum sales in Italy and sparking insatiable demand for his live show from all corners of the globe. Xavier will soon return from a massive 45 date tour of Europe and North America which saw him grace festival stages and headline iconic theatres.
