Cat Power - Jukebox Tour '08
Description:

Cat Power - aka Georgia, Atlanta born songstress Chan Marshall - returns to Australia this March for her first national tour since September 2003. And, although having toured select cities as a solo artist in June 2004, and with a makeshift pick up band as support to Nick Cave in May 2005, this is the first time Cat Power has performed in this country with her full-time band, Dirty Delta Blues.


Dirty Delta Blues, so-named for the origins of their line-up comprise drummer Jim White (Dirty Three), keyboardist player Greg Foreman (Delta 72) and guitarist Judah Bauer (Blues Explosion), alongside bassist Erik Paparazzi and will be joining Cat Power for all dates starting in Cairns and travelling right around the country


The tour follows the release on January 19th of the brand new Cat Power album, Jukebox, a hand-picked selection of songs originally recorded by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Hank Williams, The Highwaymen, Billie Holiday, Joni Mitchell, Nick Cave and even Cat Power - 'Metal Heart' from 1998's Moon Pix - all reworked in Chan's own idiosyncratic style. Jukebox also includes 'Ode to Bobby', the sole new Cat Power composition.


In between the last visit to Australia and this upcoming tour, Cat Power has recorded and released arguably her greatest album, the award winning and suitably titled, The Greatest; appeared as a model and spokesperson for Chanel jewellery; lent her vocals to to recordings by Handsome Boy Modelling School, Faithtless, El-P and Dirty Three (amongst others), and performed at benefit concerts for PETA, Fuck Cancer and The Bereaved Israeli and Palestinian Parents' Circle. Currently, Chan is in India documenting the slums of Bangalore and Bangladesh and their lack of clean water and waste hygiene for the Charity:Water organization. A cause that Cat Power have already showed support for via a charity show in NYC on December 17th of this year.


And although having been demonised on previous tours for her erratic stage behaviour, Cat Power returns to Australia this time brimming with good health and confidence.

Don't miss what will be one of the most talked about tours of the year: Cat Power, live!
