An ancient philosopher once said, “Eat. Sleep. Rave. Repeat” and it is advice we have taken through our lives. Wiser words have never been spoken.
Okay, maybe it wasn’t an ancient philosopher, but it was Legendary UK DJ extraordinaire Fatboy Slim, and really they are one and the same to us.
Fresh off the back of his sold-out seven-date UK arena tour, Fatboy Slim has announced he will land on our shores in January and February 2020 for his biggest Australian headline run ever.
Last on our shores in February for what was described as “a show of a lifetime” following his one-off Tasmania visit, mainland fans are in for a treat.
With some of the biggest hits of the last few decades in his catalogue, how do we even pick out which tracks we are most excited to hear from the party-starting machine? ‘Praise You’? TICK. ‘Weapon of Choice’? TICK. ‘Right Here Right Now’? TICK. ‘Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat’? BIG TICK. Basically, you better get into training from now, because preparation is vital.
Fatboy Slim will land in Brisbane on public holiday eve (perfect timing, we know), before making his way to Sydney, Adelaide, and Perth.
2019 has been astronomical – even for Fatboy Slim’s standards. As well as his aforementioned UK tour – which became some of the biggest parties the UK has ever seen by the way – he has also celebrated the 20th-anniversary of his top tune ‘Right Here Right Now’ with a topnotch rework ‘The Return to the Valley of the Right Now’, and returning to the sunny shores of Ibiza in July or the Pete Tong sessions at Blue Marlin, DC10 with Carl Cox, the legendary toilets at Hi and the main room at Glitterbox.
There are clearly no signs of slowing down at all.
With ten MTV VMAs, two Brit Awards and a Grammy, numerous high-profile Ibiza residencies, a Beats 1 Radio Show, a record 20 consecutive years playing at Glastonbury, and even a show on The Great Wall of China already under his belt, you best believe a Fatboy Slim party is unlike anything else you’ve ever experienced.
Fatboy Slim will be joined at all stops by 2manydjs, AKA David and Stephen Dewaele of Soulwax (DJ set).
Fatboy Slim will tour Australia in January and February 2020. Tickets are on sale via Ticketmaster.com.au.
