Xavier Rudd Australian Tour August/September 2012

Written by Brayden Darke on May 21, 2012

Xavier Rudd, one of our nation’s most iconic voices, will be touring Australia this August and September on the back of the long-anticipated release of his new album Spirit Bird. Dubbed the Spirit Bird Tour, it will be his most extensive tour to date (28 shows!), travelling to most capital cities and regional areas. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Thursday, 21 June.

Already producing his highest-selling single to date with the beautiful Follow the Sun, Spirit Bird is Xavier’s deepest and most explorative album, finding the ever socially conscience Rudd delving into his musical and spiritual ancestry.

With an array of guitars, yidakis (didgeridoos), stomp box and percussion, Rudd has re-introduced Australia to the sounds and stories of the land’s original owners, while introducing the rest of the world to an entirely new sound altogether. Over the course of a decade, he has taken this sound to every corner of the globe, producing six studio albums, two live albums, multiple ARIA nominations and a global fanbase of like-minded souls.

The Spirit Bird Australian Tour will see Xavier Rudd performing his very best, with a stage show enhanced by a carefully selected collection of videos and images portraying the hard-hitting environmental themes of Spirit Bird.

Tickets on sale 9am, Thursday 21 June through http://www.xavierrudd.com
