The Cat Empire 2014 Australian Tour

Like fanatic disciples of a new age religion, people flock in their thousands to worship The Cat Empire's live show. The bands annual global pilgrimage now sees The Cat Empire play to over a quarter of a million people each year, not including festival crowds, which can treble that number.

Following on from a July/August tour headlining European summer festivals, these modern day preachers of good living, great music and dancing will be back at home in Australia to welcome in the Spring.

The Cat Emprie will tour nationally in Sept/Oct, with a show that will blow you away – literally and figuratively. Airline baggage handlers around the country will likely walk off the job as a troupe of trumpets, trombones, baritone horns, guitars, drums, percussion, and a man with an orchestra in his mouth prepare to circumnavigate the country to play shows in specially selected venues.

On the road with The Cat Emprie is a band with almost as many “slashes” in its genre description as The Cat Empire. Welcome to the stage Madre Monte, featuring hard hitting horns funkin’ up 50s style Cumbia, a tight rhythm section dissecting Afro-Colombian progressions, skankin’ guitars infusing reggae grooves, and a front man recreating the ancient mythological stories of Colombia, all intertwining to create a unique 9-piece Latin Reggae outfit.

Add to that mix, Sydney TED talk sensation Tom Thum (17 million views), of whom The Guardian UK said "Tom Thum appears to have swallowed an entire orchestra and several backing singers". Armed with just a microphone, Thum pushes the limits of the human voice to create incredible soundtracks of impossible beats and phenomenal sounds.

The Cat Empire played their 1000th show in March this year, and show no signs of slowing down. Join the throngs of believers at the modern day places of worship listed below. In the spirit of attracting new recruits to the faith, a number of shows allow for all ages audiences (see listing). Dancing shoes essential.

Tickets on sale Monday June 16 from 9am, with fans on the bands mailing list getting advance access to tickets from Friday June 13.
