Australias best selling artist XAVIER RUDD will be performing live at the Bournemouth Opera House on Tuesday 29th July presented by YDNA Surf & Skate with Dorset Music Forums and Chris Jenkins. Doors are at 7pm with the live music starting at 8pm. Tickets are £16 available in advance* and its an all ages show (under 16’s to be accompanied by an adult).

A one-man-band/multi-instrumentalist who plays guitars, Yidaki (didgeridoos), Weissenborn slide guitars, stomp box, harmonica, and percussion. Rudd made his U.S. debut in 2004 with Solace, since then his popularity and reputation have begun to mushroom for a string of conscious, heartfelt songs and an impressive stage show.

The past few years have been a whirlwind for the singer. In between sold-out tours in Europe, Australia and the U.S., he’s supported the likes of the Dave Matthews Band, Jack Johnson and Ben Harper, and has been heard on many a surf film sound track. He has also earned a reputation as a great Australian activist, advocating for indigenous rights and environmental responsibility.

Xaviers Rudd’s 4th album (out August), Dark Shades of Blue is the first Rudd album in several years to be recorded in Australia. As a result, it bears the joy and peace of mind that comes with an often-touring artist that gets a chance to catch his breath. Recorded in Byron Bay on Australia’s eastern coast, it found the 30-year-old Rudd cutting tracks in the evening, before going to sleep under the stars.

Produced by Rudd and mixed by Joe Barresi (Tool, Queens of the Stone Age), Dark Shades of Blue finds Rudd at his most assertive, heavy and psychedelic. Dusky and cool, the disc’s guitar-driven jams expand on a sound only hinted at on previous releases.

Hear the best of Xavier Rudd at the Opera House this July, this is one unqiue singer / songwriter you don’t want to miss out on !
