It is with great pleasure that The Frontier Touring Company confirm the highly anticipated return of Jamie Cullum to Australia this April.
Australian audiences were introduced to the music of Jamie Cullum through his widely successful album Twentysomething. Following its release and the popularity of singles ‘Everlasting Love’ and ‘These Are the Days’, the BBC reported him to be UK’s biggest selling jazz artist of all time in 2003 and that is still the case today.
Noted for his ability to deftly move from jazz classics to reworked pop covers to originals that feature elements of both, Jamie Cullum’s ever-growing fan base comprises admirers spanning all ages and genres.
2005’s Catching Tales earned him further praise from critics, fellow musicians and fans as he continued to live up to the nickname ‘Sinatra in sneakers’.
The upcoming tour will be his third tour with Frontier, the most recent being a highly successful tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2006.
Jamie Cullum will performthree shows across Melbourne and Sydney to promote the upcoming Australian release of his long awaited new album The Pursuit.
New album, The Pursuit, his first studio in four years since, features nine original songs and five unique covers that showcase the Grammy and Golden Globe nominated musician’s unique voice and imaginative interpretative skills.
“‘I’m All Over It’ is a cracking pop song, with shades of Elton John in ebullient mood, while Cullum’s cover of Rihanna’s ‘Don’t Stop the Music’ sets modern R&B in a swoopingly grand context. Best of all is the arrangement of ‘If I Ruled the World’, built around a simple three-note progression which will make your jaw drop.’ – Evening Standard
“Stomping piano pop hits, super club R&B and finger clickin’ ruminations on the state of the planet. Proof the thrill is in the chase” – Q Magazine
A true entertainer, selling over 4 million albums worldwide, Cullum’s remarkable instrumental and compositional skills have enchanted album listeners and stadium audiences across the globe, marking this performance one not to be missed.
