Often considered the godfather of Punk – Iggy Pop is making a welcome return to Australia this April with tour dates just announced in Melbourne and Sydney’s Opera House! Widely acknowledged as one of the most dynamic stage performers of all time, Iggy Pop pre-figured both ‘70s punk and ‘90s grunge and has built a legendary career filled with both critical acclaim and fanatic cult success. Seeing Iggy Pop rock out is definitely a performance to put on every music lovers bucket list.  Iggy Pop is sure to entertain audiences in Melbourne and Sydney this April.

 

The travelling merchants of R&B bluesNathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats are taking to the road across Australia this April with live dates set for Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne in conjunction with their performance at Byron Bay Bluesfest. The seven-piece Soul band will be gracing Australian stages again in 2019 but this time with a new album under their belt and an even larger Australian audience after a reinvention of Nathaniel’s style in 2015 which is designed to be performed live. Known as party animals on stage, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats offer a unique live performance with a front man who possesses a husky sixties styled voice with inflections of Gospel and a vibrant soulful band to support it.

 

Bluesfest Touring is super excited to bring Grammy Award winner,Fantastic Negrito to Sydney and Melbourne this April. Fantastic Negrito represents Xavier Dphrepaulezz’s third rebirth, literally coming back from death this time. The narrative on this man is as important as the sound, because the narrative is the sound. His songs are born from a long hard life channeled through black roots music. Fantastic Negrito is the story of a man who struggled to make it and with an incredible, self-taught musical talent, he managed to find his way back on track to stardom. His hard-earned life lessons show through on more than a few songs with his voice wringing with emotion over soulful guitar licks. When you listen to Negrito, you’re invited to hear the story of life after destruction.

South Carolina Blues Rockers,TheMarcus King Band are making their Australian debut this April with dates confirmed in Sydney and Melbourne ahead of their Byron Bay Bluesfest performance this Easter. Lead by the 22-year-old phenom Marcus King, the band have exploded over the last year bringing their southern fried brand of Blues and Psychedelia inspired Rock n’ Roll on a global tour. The band operate as more of an improvisational juggernaut versus a one-man axe-wielding show backed by a few musicians. After being labelled a highlight of multiple European festivals earlier this year for delivering their own mix of Rock n’ Soul, we are really looking forward to seeing these guys rock the stage and make a lasting memory for fans in Melbourne and Sydney this April.
