“Europe – here we come…Our flights are booked, hotels and busses are almost confirmed, inflatable backdrop is ordered, and despite the fact we don’t know how we are going to make some of these distances in such short timeframes….we are all set to deliver a massive European tour in July/August. We are playing a lot of festivals, as well as some of our own shows. We’re looking forward to playing in Romania and Portugal for the first time!”, it is written on the official website of the Australian band.

The band was initially booked for the B’est Fest Festival, which will no longer take place; instead The Cat Empire will have a concert on July 31, in Bucharest, at Arenele Romane.
