Headlining Splendour in the Grass 2015, international artist and producer wunderkind Mark Ronson has enlisted a stellar crew of guest artists on his upcoming tour to bring the whole Motown-inspired Uptown Special experience to Australia in July.
“I’ve got the best band I’ve ever put together,” he announced on Friday afternoon, speaking to Triple J. And his assertions are justified, with an ensemble that includes not only a complete brass band, but also famed vocalists Andrew Wyatt (of Swedish indie pop trio Miike Snow), Daniel Merriweather, Theophilus London, and Tame Impala’s very own Kevin Parker.
Speaking about Kevin Parker, Ronson added, “I wasn’t going to come to Australia and do shows if he couldn’t come do shows with us. So that’s massive, the fact that we’re going to be able to Daffodils, Leaving Los Feliz, and Summer Breaking for the first time”.
“I’m about to go into the studio and rehearse for…a month for these shows.”
We have no doubt that Ronson will bring a slew of absolutely killer shows, especially with such exciting collaborations. Catch him at Splendour on the Friday, or check out his sideshows dates below. Click right here for our full rundown of Splendour sideshows.
