Wolfmother will be kicking off their national ‘Gypsy Caravan Tour’ right here in Newcastle on Thursday, April 20th at The Cambridge Hotel!  

Having spent the majority of 2016 touring & selling out theatres, stadiums & festivals throughout the world including North & South America, Europe, the UK & Scandinavia, Wolfmother finally return to Australia for the home leg of their Gypsy Caravan Tour (& their first full national album tour since the release of 2009’s Cosmic Egg).


With an extensive history & career, including multi-platinum sales, ARIA, Grammy & other award nods too numerous to mention, Wolfmother released album number 4, Victorious in 2016 to rave reviews & enthusiastic international response resulting in the aforementioned extended world tour.

Led by vocalist/guitarist Andrew Stockdale, Wolfmother have amassed a global fan base, played to packed-house crowds around the world, delivered show-stealing sets at star-studded festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds, and have been invited to share stages with rock icons Aerosmith and AC/DC. For their induction into the UK Music Hall of Fame, Led Zeppelin personally invited Wolfmother as their guests (the band showed their appreciation by delivering an electrifying cover of “Communication Breakdown”). For most artists, such accomplishments usually mark the culmination of a career – if they’re lucky.

Ten years after their arrival, Wolfmother have returned with what could arguably be called their best work to date. With Victorious, Stockdale once again arrives right on time: in an era dominated by single-song downloads, this is an album worthy of repeat listens from top to bottom. Following 2009’s Cosmic Egg and 2014’s New Crown, the much anticipated Victorious (Universal Music Enterprises) is an electrifying testament to the range and depth of Stockdale’s artistry. Recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles with two-time Grammy-winning producer Brendan O’Brien (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Bruce Springsteen), the songs are edgy, inventive and uncompromising and rank among the band’s best ever.
