Xavier Rudd & The United Nations | The Flag Tour
Wednesday 3 February 2016
Following a full-on year of touring Australia, Europe, the UK, the USA and Canada, Xavier Rudd & The United Nations will tour the north island of New Zealand to celebrate the release of their new single ‘FLAG’ from their acclaimed new album ‘Nanna’
Enthralling his devoted fans, Xavier Rudd kicked off 2015 by unveiling his long-awaited dream project; a full-blown dub record, backed by an eight-piece international all-star band. Described by Rolling Stone as a “beautiful celebration of a global sound”, Nanna is an amazingly uplifting listen. Mixed by the legendary Errol Brown at Tuff Gong Studios, ‘Flag’ is the perfect representation of this sound, and indeed the spirit within Xavier Rudd & The United Nations: it is a passionate call to unite, wrapped in pure Tuff Gong authenticity.
As the year has progressed, Xavier Rudd & The United Nations have become a global force. Nanna has received rave reviews, and The United Nations are consistently proving themselves to be one of the best live bands in the world.
Now, fixating his gaze on New Zealand, Xavier is stoked to have been announced for a second continuous year on the Wanderlust Festival at Great Lake Taupo with headline shows in Auckland, Wellington and New Plymouth.
