XAVIER RUDD RETURNS TO WA'S NORTH WEST FOR FOUR SPECIAL SHOWS
Xavier Rudd is excited to announce shows in the beautiful central and north west of Western Australia - his first in over 3 years. Since the release of his 2012 record Spirit Bird, Xavier has taken the record and it's message across Europe, the USA, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Dubai, Japan and Australia, narrowly missing the north of WA, until now! "I've just come out of an amazing studio experience laying down new tracks and getting ready to release my next album with eight piece band (The United Nations). Yet the final chapter of the powerful Spirit Bird cycle is still calling to be complete. It is the full circle, after a massive couple of years and so many shows around the world I will complete the cycle in the Northwest. Deep in the Kimberley was where the Spirit Bird message was presented and I will be honored to head back, give thanks and close this extremely sacred chapter, with shows in that area. " says Xavier of the forthcoming shows. Joining Xavier on these shows is very special guest Bobby Alu.

The Basin Concert Series Returns
BASIN CONCERT SERIES ANNOUNCES ITS FIRST ACTS After many years of planning it’s finally time to announce the first Artists who will bring concerts in The Basin back to life. This new breed of events is set to focus not only on the amazing Artists that have come to join us, but at the same time celebrate one of the most amazing natural assets Tasmania has to offer. “We focused on finding an array of Artists who best reflect our vision of what a relaxed event within this amazing space should be. I believe within this first group of acts we have managed to accomplish that. We couldn’t feel more privileged to have them here to help us bring the event to life” Said Event Director Clint Pease. *Xavier Rudd* is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, a surfer, environmental and cultural activist, and one of Australia’s most iconic voices. Fresh from sell-out shows and festivals across Europe, UK, Australia, US and Canada, Xavier makes his long awaited return to Tasmania in what is arguably the most fitting venue. *Xavier Rudd* will headline an amazing afternoon and evening in the iconic First Basin, Cataract Gorge, Launceston.
