Celebrated as one of the world’s energetic festival bands and party powerhouses, The Cat Empire continue to deliver a spectacular live show. To this day, they remain fiercely independent and are one of the most successful mash ups of jazz, funk, and world music that Australia has ever seen.

They have had hit singles and headlined festivals around the globe, placing them as one of the country’s biggest and most notable live bands. 2016 saw their Rising With The Sun album debut at No. 1 on both the National ARIA & AIR charts, Top 10 in six other countries and then Top 20 in 16 countries around the world, along with a global debut at No. 9 on the iTunes worldwide chart.

Yusuf Cat Stevens at Roche Estate

Yusuf Cat Stevens

British singer-songwriting legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Yusuf / Cat Stevens will perform at Roche Estate at Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley on Saturday 2 December 2017 in what will be an unmissable night for fans.

A Cat’s Attic “Peace Train Tour” commemorates the 50th Anniversary of his first major hit single and debut album Matthew & Son released in 1967. This 50th Anniversary Tour 

Search for Accommodation near Roche Estate

Cat Stevens at Roche Estate Hunter Valley

Having first found fame as a teenager in 1960s England, Cat Stevens grew from being a teen idol into becoming one of the most influential singer-songwriters of all time. In addition to his vast musical achievements, his lifelong spiritual quest and search for meaning has added intrigue and depth to a groundbreaking career.

Cat achieved early success in the mid 60s with “Matthew and Son”, “Here Comes My Baby” and “The First Cut Is The Deepest”. In 1968 the heavy work load of non-stop appearances and touring, the excesses of a pop-star lifestyle took its toll and Cat contracted TB. He was hospitalised for several months and began a significant process of inner reflection and meditation. During this time Stevens began to question aspects of his life and spirituality and underwent a profound musical transformation. From 1970 to 1978 he recorded and released the albums that would establish him as a leading singer-songwriter of his generation.

His album, Tea for the Tillerman, from 1970, went multi-platinum in the U.S. and Australia with such songs as Wild World, Hard Headed Woman, Where Do the Children Play? and Father & Son. It was Teaser and the Firecat in 1971 that made him a megastar, with songs like Morning Has Broken, Peace Train and Moonshadow – spending fifteen weeks at the top of the Australian charts, becoming the biggest-selling album of the country in 1972. In 1975 Cat experienced another momentous and life-changing event after nearly drowning in the Pacific Ocean. Following this he dedicated himself to the Divine path, leaving music he concentrated on the education and humanitarian relief.

The tragic events of 9/11 motivated Yusuf to, once again, take to the global stage. He spoke out in the media against the atrocities, against fanaticism and war, and called for peace and unity. In 2006 Yusuf returned to mainstream music with the album An Other Cup, which was followed in 2009 by Roadsinger. 2014 was another monumental year for Yusuf, as he released his fourteenth studio album Tell ‘Em I’m Gone and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He is currently working on a children’s animation series and writing his autobiography, which is expected to be surface next year.

Midnight Oil at Hope Estate

Midnight Oil Hunter Valley

Iconic Australian band, Midnight Oil are preparing their first world tour in over two decades and will be performing an unmissable show amongst the vineyards of the majestic Hunter Valley at Hope Estate.

In keeping with the band’s longstanding commitments, their carbon footprint during “The Great Circle” World Tour will, of course, be fully offset and sustainability initiatives will be undertaken at all shows. Midnight Oil will also continue their collaborations with local and international environmental organisations including Greenpeace, supporting their campaigns on crucial issues like dangerous climate change and the imminent threats to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

At one level “The Great Circle 2017” simply reflects the geographic reality that the tour will loop around the world and then circle Australia. At another level the name clearly implies the planet itself but it has a further meaning too. Sailors, and airmen use “the great circle” to navigate the globe because on a sphere the shortest distance between two points is not usually a straight line. How appropriate for a group who has always been deeply engaged with the world around them but whose career path has never been linear.

Midnight Oil is more than just a rock ‘n’ roll band. In 2017 they will finally bring things back to where they all began. The circle remains unbroken.

John Farnham at Hope Estate

John Farnham

It is set to be an all Aussie celebration when John Farnham, Jon Stevens, Shannon Noll and the Black Sorrows descend on Hope Estate in NSW’s Hunter Valley on Saturday 8 April 2017.

John Farnham at Hope Estate

Joining Farnham for this special once only experience will be JON STEVENS who rose to fame with NOISEWORKS and also boasts a long and successful solo career, the resurgent SHANNON NOLL and the ever popular THE BLACK SORROWS.

I have not performed at Hope Estate for some time now and I am so looking forward to being there again on April 8th. This will be the last show on my current regional tour and could not wish for a better venue to play. John Farnham 

In a country of 22 million people, John Farnham is the one Australian artist who stages arena-sized concerts whenever he tours to satisfy the demand. He is Australia’s most successful solo artist, on-stage and on record. His Whispering Jack album was the first album to sell over a million copies in Australia alone.

The anthemic single “You’re the Voice” restored Farnham to number one for the first time in 17 years. The carefully crafted adult contemporary October 1986 album Whispering Jack was number one 18 weeks, and became the biggest-selling album in Australian history. “You’re the Voice” sold a million copies in Europe and reached the Top Ten in England.

A consummate singer and performer since 1986, Farnham has been Australia’s number one attraction, with successive big-selling albums and sold-out concert tours. International interest has continued to beckon, but the dedicated family man is happy with his career as it is.

James Taylor at Hope Estate

James Taylor Hope Estate

Iconic singer-songwriter James Taylor will return to the Hunter Valley for the first time in seven years for what is expected to be one of the best concerts in Hunter Valley Wine Country in 2017. James Taylor Hope Estate Sunday 12 February 2017.

James Taylor Hope Estate

With a career spanning nearly 50 years since first signing to The Beatles’ Apple Records in 1968, James Taylor’s music embodies the art of songwriting in its most personal and universal forms, resonating with people all over the world, while his warm baritone is among the most recognized voices in popular music.

His songs have had a profound influence on both songwriters and music lovers of all generations and from all walks of life; Fire and Rain, Country Road, Something in the Way She Moves, Sweet Baby James, Carolina In My Mind and many more. In 1971 James scored his first #1 single with You’ve Got a Friend, written by long time friend Carole King and earning him his first Grammy Award for Best Pop Male Vocal.

Joining James Taylor as very special guest on Hope Estate Hunter Valley shows is singer songwriter, Bernard Fanning. Bernard has accumulated one of the most celebrated and distinct songbooks on the Australian rock spectrum; charting a course from creation to an interactive live experience like no other. With his solo career now spanning ten-plus years, Fanning has firmly cemented his position as one of Australia’s finest songwriters and lyricists. From the country folk-tinged charm of his multi-platinum debut solo album Tea and Sympathy (#1 ARIA debut), to the rock grooves and horn breaks of its follow up, Departures (#1 ARIA debut). Now Bernard has delivered the delicate acoustic guitar track ‘Reckless’ which is the second official single from his ARIA nominated third solo release, Civil Dusk, out now.

Also appearing at with James Taylor Hope Estate Hunter Valley will be country singer songwriter Kasey Chambers, whose new EP Ain’t No Little Girl has just been released ahead of the January release of her tenth album Dragonfly. Chambers’ story-telling is as integral in her performances as it is in her albums, and has led her to win eleven ARIA Awards, 22 Golden Guitar Awards, two Americana Music Awards nominations and ten APRA Awards.

Bruce Springsteen Hunter Valley

Rumours rock legend Bruce Springsteen may be making a return to Australian shores in the near future first surfaced last month and now further fuel has been added to the fire.

With both teaser advertising on Sydney FM Radio Triple M on Monday and Frontier Touring dropping the biggest hint yet The Boss will be coming Down Under. “Now sometimes tomorrow comes soaked in treasure,” the company posted at lunchtime on Monday.

Springsteen is set to release his autobiography, Born To Run, later in September, and a new album, Chapter And Verse, will be released just before it.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band played in the two shows in the Hunter Valley at Hope Estate during his last Australian tour in February 2014. It is hoped he will be back again with Saturday 18 February 2017 a likely date.

And apparently a reformed Jet are set to be supporting the tour.

Frontier Touring chief Michael Gudinski first stoked the rumour mill after an appearance on Triple M, when he told the hosts and listeners to expect a “massive February and March of rock” and hinted at a 2017 Springsteen tour.

“That was an interesting visit from Michael Gudinski,” the official Triple M Hot Breakfast account tweeted. “We’ve been warmed up to expect a MASSIVE February/March of rock!” The tweet was post-scripted with the hashtag #TheBoss.
