The Cat Empire announce 2018 National Tour

Australian jazz-ska band The Cat Empire have just dropped the dates for their huge upcoming national tour.

Forming almost two decades ago over a love of jazz, the six-piece has six studio albums and eighty recorded songs under their belts.

The tour kicks off on the 10th of June in Adelaide, which is then followed by a two-month stint touring Europe, before they make their way back to Australia to resume their tour in September.

The Cat Empire will make their way through Hobart, Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast before returning to touring Europe and the UK. The Australian tour will then resume in December, finishing off in Fremantle for the ‘The Cat Empire Carnivale’.

Supporting them on tour is up and coming singer-songwriter Odette and brass duo The Empire Horns. With her track ‘Watch Me Read You’ coming in 56th place in last year’s Triple J Hottest 100, Odette’s mixture of soul, jazz and pop will make her a great addition to the tour.

The Cat Empire are no strangers to putting on good live performances, having the highest annual ticket sales of all Australian bands. Punters can expect a lively performance fused with jazz, ska, funk, rock and Latin influences.

Tickets for The Cat Empire’s national tour are currently on sale and can be found here. Check out the full list of tour dates below.
