Covering every national state and territory across 26 shows, the tour will see Megan perform a full string of stripped back, intimate appearances for the first time ever, with a particular focus on visiting her fans outside of Australia’s staple touring markets.
2014 saw Megan release her ARIA Top 5 album ‘There There’ to rave reviews from fans and critics alike, with accompanying international performances throughout Europe and the United Kingdom. Recorded with Sam Dixon (Sia, Adele), Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint) and Leo Abraham (Roxy Music), the record is punctuated by Megan’s trademark lyrical hooks and lush, new-romantic pop references.
In addition to the Tangents Tour, Washington will perform at

Gang Of Youths

http://mjrpresents.wpengine.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/GOY-Press-Shot-Low-Rez.jpg

Initially formed as a hobby project in mid 2012 by 22 year old frontman David Leaupepe, it wasn’t long before fans and critics alike quickly recognised Gang Of Youths for reaching enviable milestones that few bands would expect from their year of infancy.

Comprised of long-time friends David Leaupepe, Joji Malani, Jung Kim and Max Dunn, the subsequent 2013 release of the critically acclaimed Evangelists, a track produced by Jack Moffit of The Preatures, saw Gang Of Youths receive substantial online support, rousing the interest of illustrious bloggers and critics alike – culminating in the band being featured in both NME magazine as well as Indie Shuffle before quickly gaining high rotation on Australian national tastemaker powerhouse triple j.

With an insurmountable desired end goal of euphonic perfection, the band approached Kevin McMahon of Marcata Recording to produce their debut. Accomplished and respected in his own right, McMahon gained the attention of the band following his production of an array of renowned records, including the entire Titus Andronicus discography, through to Real Estate’s latest, Frightened Rabbit and Swan’s epic The Seer.

The later part of 2013 saw the band touring the UK with Manchester Orchestra before returning to Australia to play sold out shows across the east coast, whilst simultaneously putting the final touches on their debut album, The Positions, mixed by internationally renowned Peter Katis (The National, Local Natives, Frightened Rabbit).

During the Australian summer the band went on to support both New York heavyweights Vampire Weekend and Scottish rockers Frightened Rabbit, following which Gang Of Youths were nominated for ‘Next Big Thing’ at the FBI Radio SMAC awards and were featured as ‘One to Watch in 2014’ for Spotify Australia and New Zealand.

Now, in 2015 after blowing away triple j audiences with their powerful ‘Like A version’ rendition of LCD Soundsystem’s ‘All My Friends’ and following an 18 month creative tour-de- force which saw the band reintroduce themselves to the world with singles ‘Poison Drum’ & ‘Radioface’, Gang Of Youths release their critically acclaimed debut album The Positions by storming the Australian ARIA charts with a #5 debut.

Described by Indie Shuffle as an album that “will no doubt see Gang Of Youths move from strength to strength over the coming months” and as an “an immersive journey, that will tear you apart as quickly as it will piece you back together.” by RIP IT UP, Gang Of Youths continue to impress critics and fans alike.

With a sold out national tour, top 5 debut on the ARIA charts, triple j feature album, FBi album of the week and glowing reviews from respected publications such as Rolling Stone, RIP IT UP, Tone Deaf, Neon Gold, The Music, FasterLouder & The Guardian (among numerous others), it looks to be that 2015 for Gang Of Youths will be one of biggest years experienced by an Australian artist in recent memory.

“Astonishing LP, a record so emotionally bruised and honest –
ROLLING STONE 41⁄2
“The Positions is magic to the ears and undoubtedly will rank as one of the years finest releases – Australian or otherwise” –
THE AU REVIEW 9/10
“Remarkable for a band so early in their career” –
FASTERLOUDER
“The positions confirms the band as one of Australia’s most exciting & talented acts” –
BEAT / BRAG / EXPRESS
“It’s filled with songs which will one day, no doubt, fill stadiums” –

Xavier Rudd

Following straight on from their appearance at Splendour In The Grass this July, Xavier Rudd & The United Nations will tour Australia-wide throughout August, September and October to celebrate the release of Flag – the second single from their acclaimed debut album, Nanna.

Enthralling his devoted fans, Xavier Rudd kicked off 2015 by unveiling his long-awaited dream project; a full-blown dub record, backed by a eight-piece international all-star band. Supporting lead single Come People, Xavier Rudd & The United Nations embarked on a sold-out national tour in March that took them to packed theatres in every capital city, and ended with a triumphant homecoming in front of a capacity crowd at Byron Bay Bluesfest.

As the year has progressed, Xavier Rudd & The United Nations have become a global force. Nanna has received rave reviews, and The United Nations are consistently proving themselves to be one of the best live bands in the world. Spending April and May in North America, the band have been met with even more sold-out shows abroad, with New York, Toronto and Montreal all hitting capacity. Across the Atlantic, Xavier Rudd & The United Nations will spend June and July on a European tour, performing for fans in 16 cities across seven countries, before heading back to Australia for the Flag Tour. An incredible itinerary.

With 35 dates across all states (including performances at the Darwin Festival and Caloundra Music Festival) the Flag Tour is not just regional Australia’s first up-close introduction to Xavier Rudd & The United Nations, but also the largest regional tour Xavier has undertaken since his 2012 gold-selling masterpiece, Spirit Bird. For his first full band, and the most dynamic album of his career, it’s not surprising that Xavier Rudd wants to take The United Nations to every town in Australia.

“In a time when Australia is digging deep, marching together and standing strong for our threatened communities in the Northwest and simply the long awaited need for positive change for reconciliation in our country, I feel the spirit of this band is very important. This album, this tour, this family, The United Nations is an example energetically & spiritually of where we need to be as a nation. We will be touring regional places in Australia; some we’ve never been to, some we haven’t been for a long time, in order to deliver this message and celebrate the energy of one people with our fellow Australians. Its time to Boogie!”- Xavier Rudd

Described by Rolling Stone as a “beautiful celebration of a global sound”, Nanna is an amazingly uplifting listen. Mixed by the legendary Errol Brown, Flag is the perfect representation of this sound, and indeed the spirit within Xavier Rudd & The United Nations: it is a passionate call to unite, wrapped in pure Tuff Gong authenticity. The perfect song to take to the people.

UB40 Austalian Tour Dates

The UK’s most successful reggae band, UB40, will land in Australia this November for a national tour, including a bunch of regional dates seeing the band play from the city skylines of Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne, all the way through to the beach side havens of Coffs Harbour, Newcastle, Cairns and The Gold Coast.

Naming themselves after the unemployment benefit form, UB40 formed in 1978, releasing their debut album ‘Signing Off’ in August 1980 – considered by many to be one of the greatest reggae albums ever released by a British band. It was the start of a career that has since seen the band have over forty UK Top 40 hit singles and achieve sales of over 100 million records, making UB40 one of the most successful British groups of all-time. The band’s latest Top 30 album ‘Getting Over The Storm’ was awarded BBC Radio 2’s ‘Album Of The Week’ accolade and received 5-star reviews from the UK’s music press on its release in September 2013.

With nearly four decades of success that has spanned over forty hit singles, international stadium tours, festival headline slots and the dramatic departure of long time lead singer Ali Campbell back in 2008. The the remaining founding members, and principle songwriters, joined by new lead vocalist Duncan Campbell, have moved forward flourishing as they go, and keeping the UB40 legacy alive and well.
UB40 are Robin Campbell (co-lead vocals and guitar), Duncan Campbell (lead vocals) Earl Falconer (bass, vocal), Brian Travers (sax and keyboards), Jimmy Brown (drums), Norman Hassan (percussion, vocals).

The band also feature, Martin Meredith (sax) and Lawrence Parry (trumpet), who have both been in UB40’s touring line-up for over twenty years, and Tony Mullins (keyboards).

DCUP

After getting signed to prominent Australian dance label Sweat It Out after just one demo record, DCUP worked to build a unique brand of addictive dance electronica, bursting with power synths and sugar coated hooks, DCUP has now become synonymous with the nu-disco tag. With 2010’s monumental success of ‘Me No Speak Americano’ ,DCUP and collaborators Yolanda Be Cool quickly took the club scene by storm. As the springboard for DCUP’s international career, the song garnered more than 50 million plays on YouTube, giving MacLennan an audience far wider than he thought possible.

Through all the success of his shimmering electronic euro funk, McLennan’s collaborating once more with Yolanda Be Cool on their latest release, ‘Sugar Man’. Reinvisioning the classic 1970’s tune by Rodriguez, ‘Sugar Man’ promises to be their most dynamic track yet.

With new music in the works for 2015, DCUP “would like to make music that makes people join hands.” The future for DCUP is bright, with many more tunes in the pipeline – the world is excited to see what’s going to come next.

For one night only DCUP rolls in to Beach House at Port Macquarie Saturday 13th June

From The Jam

Bruce Foxton with From The Jam

“That’s Entertainment” Australian tour – March 2015

From The Jam, featuring former The Jam bassist Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings, return to Australia in March 2015 for their ‘That’s Entertainment’ tour.  Tickets for the tour go on sale 9am from usual outlets on July 14.

The Jam exploded onto the punk scene in 1977 delivering their ferocious mission statement – debut single ‘In The City’. With a catalogue that includes 18 UK Top 40 singles The Jam became the sound of The British youth and one of the greatest and biggest selling bands in British history. In 2000, Q magazine placed The Jam’s third album ‘All Mod Cons’ at Number 50 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever.

From The Jam have gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary ‘live’ performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago. Audiences can expect to hear classic The Jam hits such as Down In The Tube Station At Midnight, Going Underground, Town Called Malice and The Modern World as well as some live favourites and songs from Bruce’s solo career.

Bruce Foxton’s new album, ‘Back In The Room’ is out now with special guests Paul Weller & Steve Cropper.

“There may never be a Jam reunion but it’s reassuring to see someone as talented and passionate as Bruce Foxton being able to take these wonderful old songs out on the road and communicate so successfully with this Modern World” – LouderThanWar
