For over a decade, Melbourne’s finest genre-busting, multi-platinum selling band The Cat Empire has been known far and wide as one of the world’s greatest party bands. Their colourful, genre-bending music, shipped across the globe in traveller’s backpacks, seems at home almost anywhere.

Following the enormous success of their seventh chart-topping album, Stolen Diamonds, which debuted in the top twenty in sixteen countries around the world; the band return with an impressive array of dates for March 2020 in the UK.

Difficult to describe and impossible to categorise, The Cat Empire’s reputation is built upon a chaotic and fiercely uplifting live performance, one that saw them complete 120 live shows across the world last year, playing to a combined audience of over 600,000.

Having played multiple night, sold-out shows across the UK at venues such as London’s Roundhouse and the prestigious Royal Albert Hall, the band are keen to take their fans on a journey back to where it all began, playing the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire followed by dates in Brighton, Cambridge, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham and Oxford.

It would be a gross understatement to say the previous twelve months might have been busy for The Cat Empire; multiple sold out tours across Europe, America and Australia; acclaimed side projects and collaborations; and a campaign that saw them release one song per month from Stolen Diamonds across 2018 and 2019, drawing ecstatic responses from critics and fans alike.

The Cat Empire are vocalist Felix Riebl, trumpet player Harry James Angus, drummer Will Hull-Brown, Jamshid Khadiwala on decks and percussion, keyboardist Ollie McGill and bassist Ryan Monro.
