THANK YOU from the Original Line-up of The Cat Empire – Our Manager

Tuesday, April 12, 2022

Correne Wilkie jumped with both feet into the unknown world of managing a band way back in 2001. Correne had a vision, and her instinct and skill paved a way for us that never ceased to amaze. We made the music, she built The Empire. Best of all, she looked out for us as individuals throughout the whole crazy experience. Thank you Correne, for your passion, sheer hard work, creativity, guidance and friendship. Thank you for managing our band in a way that no one else could have.

Want to get your hands on some unique merch that never saw the light of day?

Saturday, April 9, 2022

Our Euro 2020 tour got smashed by COVID only 4 shows into a 28 date tour, and until now all of the merch we had printed has been in the warehouse with nowhere to go.

We’ve got hoodies, t-shirts, sweaters, singlets, socks and more…and we are making them available for purchase from anywhere in the world.

There will be no more Merch from the original band after what’s currently on the website sells out…so jump in quickly to secure yours HERE.

UK/EU Tour Merch

Tuesday, April 5, 2022

In March 2020 we embarked on a 28 date tour of Europe. 4 shows in Covid-19 emerged and brought the tour to a screaming halt. We found ourselves on the last flight out of London back to Australia before we’d even had time to warm up the tour bus. It was hugely disappointing for us, our team, and our ticket holders.

We had manufactured a great merchandise range unique to that tour which people didn’t get a chance to buy. It went straight back to the warehouse. So HERE it is, your chance to buy that range.

WA We Are Coming.

Monday, February 28, 2022

Western Australia, we finally have the green light to come over to you. We can’t believe this is happening and are thrilled we will be able to celebrate the final shows of the original line-up of The Cat Empire with you on April 1 and 2.

April 2 is sold out, but tickets are still available to this all-ages* event on Friday, April 1, at Red Hill Auditorium.

We will be presenting an outdoor, covid safe format with plenty of room for you to feel safe and comfortable.

So gather your friends and family and join us at Red Hill Auditorium for a night of music with Sunshine Brothers,
