Australian Tour July 2012
Following the announcement of The xx’s new album Coexist and their upcoming Australian tour, which sold out in minutes, Handsome Tours and Fuzzy are pleased to announce solo shows for Jamie xx in Melbourne and Sydney.
Catch Jamie xx performing at New Guernica in Melbourne on Tuesday 17 July 2012 and at Goodgod Small Club in Sydney on Thursday 19 July 2012. Tickets for both shows are on sale at 9am AEST on Friday 15 June 2012 .
The past two years have been meteoric for Jamie xx, who has earned a name for himself as one of the world’s hottest producers. In 2011 he crafted the underground hit ‘Far Nearer’ and collaborated with Gil Scott-Heron on the album We’re New Here, a re-envisioned version of Scott-Heron’s 2010 masterpiece I’m New Here. We’re New Here features Jamie’s brilliant remixes of ‘NY Is Killing Me’ and ‘I’ll Take Care of U’, which was later reworked by Drake and Rihanna for their worldwide #1 ‘Take Care’.
Jamie xx has also garnered universal praise for his remixes of Adele and Radiohead, and The xx remix of Florence & The Machine’s ‘You’ve Got The Love’ was a massive internet sensation.
