Robbie Williams – ‘Let Me Entertain You’ Tour – Australia 2015 – More Shows Added!

Robbie

**** TOUR UPDATE ****
With word that Robbie Williams’ second Melbourne date on his upcoming Let Me Entertain You Tour has officially sold out, Chugg Entertainment are delighted to confirm a third and FINAL show at Rod Laver Arena on Saturday 24 October.

Since its announcement in May the response to the Let Me Entertain You tour has been outstanding right across the country, with second shows announced in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne mere minutes after the first tickets went on sale. This third Melbourne show will be the last show added to the Australian leg of Robbie’s World Tour, with Chugg Entertainment confirming no further shows will be announced and urging fans to get in quick for what few tickets remain for each show.

Michael Chugg said today, “Melbourne has always been a strong market for Robbie, he’s got some wild fans in Victoria. Adding this extra show on a Saturday night is going to make for an incredible weekend! Maybe my Tasmanian family will even come up for the party!”

Also confirmed today, Swedish trio Baskery will continue their Let Me Entertain You supporting act duties, joining Robbie for the Australian and New Zealand legs of the tour. No matter where in the world they go, people tell the Swedish sisters that they’ve never heard or seen anything like it, that they have a completely unique setup and perform with an inexhaustible energy. This high voltage trio has been compared to everything from Fleetwood Mac to The Black Keys to Led Zeppelin. It’s all about turning the music on its head, blending the straightforwardness of punk with the subtlety of singer/songwriting. Expect the sounds of “banjopunk”, “new folk”, “nordicana”, an energetic live show and killer sibling harmonies.

Advance tickets to the Saturday 24 October show at Rod Laver Arena will be available at RobbieWilliams.com and the Visa Entertainment presale for all Visa Credit, Debit and Prepaid cardholders and can be purchased using Visa Checkout. The presale starts from 10am (local time) Tuesday 7 July 2015 and will run until 10am (local time) Wednesday 8 July 2015 or until presale tickets sell out at www.visaentertainment.com.au.

SEEKAE +Dome Album launch – April 2011 [Album and Tour News]

  Electronic trio Seekae deliver + Dome, the band’s second offering.
Based in Sydney, Australia, Seekae are made up of members George Nicholas, John Hassell and Alex Cameron. The trio formed in 2006 after a chance meeting and gained original notoriety on Sydney’s live circuit for their own brand of 8 bit electronica.

2008 saw the release of debut album The Sound of Trees Falling on People to critical acclaim. Rolling Stone described the record as “an album that’s as ambient and mesmerizing as an iced-over forest,” along with 5 star reviews, FBI radio crowned the record ‘one of Australian top ten albums of the decade’ and listeners also recognized the band at Sydney’s Music Arts and Culture Awards as Best Live Act.

The album was a move away from their inceptive sound towards what has been described as skirt lifting, ball crushing Ghetto Ambience.

After an incredibly busy few years supporting the praised release, Seekae toured heavily, with the likes of PVT, Broadcast, Cloud Control, Decoder Ring, and Midnight Juggernauts including selling out their own headline nights.

The songwriting speaks for itself, but it is their attention to detail that makes Seekae such a unique and exciting live act to behold, once being described as ‘ an ambient feast of sonic wizardry’ (LIFE MUSIC MEDIA).

2011 holds something new for Seekae. George, John and Alex take +Dome to the stage with impressive live show that boasts live drums, guitars , samplers and synthesizers. They are back to break more ground.

Fusing the 808 and bass heavy club sounds of the new decade and their own familiar brand of electronica, the Sydney three-piece return with their Sophomore release +Dome.

Paying homage to the sound and textures of Tokyo, Berlin, Chicago and London, +Dome blends live instrumentation with electronics and samples collected over two years of performing, touring and writing.

Composing every sound and song with meticulous detail, from sub bass heavy rollers to intricate guitar riddled interludes, Seekae transmit their developed pallet through a long player that is both rhythm orientated and at the same time self reflecting.

It’s percussive, loud and exciting at times – reserved and laid back at others, but every track oozes a warm feeling that could only be described as Seekae.

…………………………………………………

The Sound Of Trees Falling On People, first introduced Seekae’s mastery for creating intricate, beat-driven tunes. +Dome is more than just a follow up, it’s a new beginning.
