Presented by TEG Dainty and Nice Events, the tour opens up in Melbourne on Saturday 13 April and moves on to Sydney on Sunday 14 April (two shows) before winding up in Brisbane on Thursday 18 April.
Felix Buxton & Simon Ratcliffe (better known as Basement Jaxx) are double BRIT and GRAMMY award winning artists who have graced the biggest stages across the world, including: headlining the main stage at Glastonbury Festival, Hyde Park in London and The Hollywood Bowl.
Following on from their ground-breaking 2011 album collaboration with The Metropole Orkest and the now seminal LIVE shows that accompanied it in London & the Netherlands, Basement Jaxx will unveil a new and updated version of the project as they creatively collide LIVE on stage with Sydney’s The Metropolitan Orchestra at the iconic Sydney Opera House, as well as stops in Melbourne & Brisbane.
Comprising magical re-interpretations of all the Basement Jaxx floor-fillers, as well as specially commissioned new work and a few surprises along the way, the show will also feature legendary Jaxx singers Vula & Sharlene Hector on powerhouse vocal duties.
Basement Jaxx are no strangers to Aussie shores and have thrilled audiences over the years with their massive hit records including: ‘Red Alert,’ ‘Rendez-Vu,’ ‘Jump N Shout,’ ‘Bingo Bango,’ ‘Romeo,’ ‘Where’s Your Head At,’ ‘Do Your Thing,’ ‘Good Luck,’ ‘Oh My Gosh,’ ‘Hush Boy’ & many more! They’ve collaborated with the likes of: Robyn, Sam Sparro, Dizzee Rascal and have remixed for the likes of Pet Shop Boys, Daft Punk, Justin Timberlake, Adele, Mary J Blige and more.
