NATHAN CAVALERI
Oct 30 all-day

Nathan CavaleriMuch of the country was oblivious to the career Nathan Cavaleri led beyond prime time Australia. By age 12, he found himself the centre of a bidding war between the labels of Michael Jackson, Prince and Madonna. By age 16 he’d toured with B.B. King as his guest, and played at the Kennedy Centre in front of The Clintons with Etta James and Bonnie Raitt.

2019 saw Nathan Cavaleri return to the stage after a 5-year struggle with anxiety/depression. His story telling type show captivated audiences around the country including 1000’s at Caloundra Music Festival.

After the breakthrough success of the last tour, Nathan is excited to bring the show back on the road in support of the “Demons” full length album release, featuring a collection of brand new songs amongst fan favourites previously released as singles.

From how his love for music deepened during his battle with leukaemia as a kid, to a hilarious encounter with Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and Robert Plant after playing to sixty thousand people in Zurich after Elton John, it’s how he brings his experiences and songs into the present that gives audiences more than a shot of nostalgia.
