It has been announced today that the Australian electro-pop outfit Confidence Man will join Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, The Charlatans and Andrew Cushin on the line-up for the upcoming Rock N Roll Circus in Newcastle this summer.
Confidence Man is the latest act to join the stellar line up of performers who will hit the stage on Thursday 9 June under a huge big top on Newcastle’s Town Moor. The group’s eccentric and infectiously catchy dance-pop is set to be the perfect soundtrack to the circus-themed event which will feature professional circus performers, from acrobats and aerialists to stilt-walkers and fortune-tellers.
The show will come hot on the heels of the band’s highly anticipated second album ‘Tilt’ which is due for release in April this year, featuring their latest singles ‘Holiday’ and ‘Feels Like a Different Thing’.
Led by Janet Planet and Sugar Bones, Confidence Man have had an astronomical rise to fame since forming in Brisbane in 2016. Two years after its inception, the band released their award-winning debut album ‘Confident Music for Confident People’ which catapulted the indie-pop mavericks to the international stage.
That year, the album picked up an Australian Independent Record Award for Best Dance/Electronica Album and their explosive live performances earned them Live Pop Act of The Year at the prestigious National Live Music Awards.
Within three years of forming, Confidence Man had garnered a global following, performing at some of the biggest festivals in the world including Rock en Seine (Paris), Primavera Sound (Barcelona), Governors Ball (New York), Glastonbury (UK) and Splendor in the Grass (Australia).
Janet Planet of Confidence Man said: “We’re so excited to be coming back to Newcastle for this crazy night of music, dancing and circus-related antics. We’ll have loads of brand-new material to share from our upcoming album and we can’t wait to play these new tunes live. Get ready to dance!”
