After what can only be described as a whirlwind 2009 – including selling out his first Australian solo tour in May, one of New Zealand’s most progressive and respected artists Tiki Taane is heading back across the Tasman for his ‘Faded’ Tour.
Known for being musically fearless and one of the major influences of Aotearoa Bass Culture, Tiki returns once again with his all star band, The Dub Soldiers. To celebrate the release of the summer anthem ‘Faded’, which features fellow band member P-Digsss (Shapeshifter, Peacekeepers), Tiki Live will take you on a musical journey best described as dynamic & powerful, compelling & spiritually moving.
Throughout 2009 Tiki has kept himself busy in Australia, first playing Big Day Out at the beginning of the year and then returning to play three shows in May both with his band, The Dub Soldiers. He’s recently just finished touring with Shapeshifter and has been invited to play at this year’s Homebake festival in Sydney.
Joining the Faded Tour is one of Tiki's favorite DJs/producers, Optimus Gryme. Known for his massive DJ sets and recently releasing NZs first Dubstep album ‘Eclipse’, Optimus Gryme will heat things up big time, showing just why he’s been picked to support Tiki Live.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of New Zealand’s favourite sons performing with a live band on what will be a truly unforgettable experience.
