One of our nation’s most iconic voices, Xavier Rudd, announced in May this year that he was about to embark on the Spirit Bird Tour – his most extensive tour yet.
To celebrate the release of his striking seventh studio album, the tour will take Xavier Rudd to 29 cities and regional centres around the country, from Airlie Beach to Albany.
Since the release of Spirit Bird, which debuted at number two on the ARIA charts, Rudd has since announced US and Canadian tours.
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 conscienced Rudd delving into his musical and spiritual ancestry.
With an array of guitars, yidakis (didgeridoos), stomp box and percussion, Rudd has re-introduced Australians 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 fan-base of likeminded 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.
Catch Xavier on the east coast leg of the tour at the Coolanagatta Hotel on Saturday and the YAC amphitheatre, Byron Bay on Sunday.
