Cat Power (Solo) Australian Tour 2016 - To be...

(UPDATED) February 02, 2016

Cat Power has been forced to cancel her forthcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand.

Cat Power a/k/a Chan Marshall suffers from Hereditary Angioedema (HAE) a potentially fatal rare blood disease that causes swelling around the throat, oesophagus and internal organs. Its the same condition which caused her to postpone some European dates in 2012 - all of which were rescheduled.

This is the first time in an 18 year touring history with Australia that Chan has been forced to postpone any shows and she is determined too make it back ASAP and in good health.

All tickets for this tour will remain valid for the rescheduled dates which will be advised shortly.

Cat Power a/k/a Georgia-born singer / songwriter Chan Marshall, returns to Australia this summer for a series of intimate theatre-only performances. Performing solo, the show will boast a whole swag of new material and old favourites ahead of new album recording this summer. The Georgia-born singer / songwriter has been a long time fan of Australia, its audience and its people, dating back to 1997 and her first visit at the behest of Dirty Three / Xylouris White drummer Jim White.

A visit that also saw Chan record her album Moon Pix (including breakthrough track Crossbones Style) with both White and Dirty Three guitarist Mick Turner. Follow-up visits have included both band and solo excursions and have included festival slots at Meredith, Golden Plains, MONA FOMA, Sydney Festival, PIAF and headline shows in some of the country’s premier venues. More recently Ms. Marshall, alongside Jakob Dylan (son of Bob), has lent her stunning vocals to a duo-rendering of You Showed Me, a lost classic from sixties mavericks The Turtles. The track is a feature of Echo In The Canyon an all-star indie tribute to the California folk-sound and artists of that era including The Beach Boys, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Love and of course, The Turtles. The tribute includes live performances and an album (due in 2016) both of which feature Cat Power, Fiona Apple, Beck, Jakob Dylan and others. You Showed Me is the first taste of the So-Cal tribute.

Continuing the sixties vibe, Cat Power also recently provided the voiceover to Janis, a movie-length documentary about troubled female rock-pioneer Janis Joplin - endorsed by the Joplin estate - which made its debut at the Venice Film Festival this past September. Additionally, Chan has added her vocals to a character from animated TV Show Adult Swim. Oh, and in between all this and the writing of new material, Ms.Marshall gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. For now though, it’s all about Cat Power (Solo) this February.
