On Saturday, November 26 Xavier plays his 88th and final show for 2022 when he opens The Green Room, on the Bluesfest site.

Xavier Rudd has made the most of a post-Covid world by doing what he loves most: touring. To support his latest album Jan Juc Moon, Xavier will have performed live on no fewer than 88 occasions in 2022.

First up was the sold-out 37-date Australian tour from May through July. That was followed up with a 50-date tour through Europe that began on September 9 in Porto, Portugal, and ends in Antwerp in Belgium November 10.

On Saturday, November 26 Xavier plays his 88th and final show for 2022 when he opens The Green Room, a 1,500+ capacity venue on the Bluesfest site. Rudd says it’s been a massive year. ‘I’m stoked to play my final show on Bundjalung Country to finish things off. This new Green Room venue is gonna be great for the Byron area and I’m excited to launch this new space.’

The Green Room was constructed and completed earlier this year on the very ground where all Bluesfest artists prepared themselves before hitting the Bluesfest stages.

Festival director Peter Noble OAM says that people speak of hallowed ground and when it comes to music, The Green Room stands on hallowed ground. ‘Given the likes of Jack Johnson, Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal, Gypsy Kings, Jeff Beck, Bob Dylan, BB King, George Clinton, Leon Russell, Jethro Tull, ZZ Top, Gurrumul, Mavis Staples, Kasey Chambers, Little Feat, Trombone Shorty, Cold Chisel, John Fogerty, Crosby Stills and Nash, Earth Wind and Fire, The Pogues, YES, Ziggy Marley, Paul Simon, Robert Plant, Ben Harper, Santana, Iggy & The Stooges, Steve Miller Band, Rodriguez, Bonnie Raitt, Dropkick Murphey’s, Jimmy Cliff, Rufus Wainwright, Lionel Richie, Dave Mathews Band, Doobie Brothers, Boz Skaggs, Zac Brown Band, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Angelique Kidjo, John Butler, Kendrick Lamar, The National, Jackson Browne, Brian Wilson, Tom Jones, Pattie Smith, Jimmy Buffett, Madness, Lauryn Hill, Tash Sultana, Sheryl Crow, Nile Rodgers, Morcheeba, The Teskey Brothers, Paul Kelly, Nora Jones, Baker Boy, Alanis Morissette, Midnight Oil, Crowded House, Amy Shark, Kev Carmody, The Saboteurs – and literally hundreds more who have walked this ground since 2010 – and of course, Xavier Rudd.

‘And I’m absolutely delighted that Xavier will be the first artist to perform in The Green Room.’
