Legendary Chinese rocker XTX (Xie Tian Xiao 谢天笑) brings his explosive live show to the US in April. The tour, produced by seminal Chinese label/promoter Modern Sky, hits nine cities including Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, New York, and Indianapolis.

Originally from Shandong, XTX got his start in Beijing in the mid-1990s, forming the grunge act Cold Blooded Animal 冷血动物 and releasing the band’s self-titled debut on Chinese underground rock label Scream Records in 2000. A 2002 tour of the US, during which Cold Blooded Animal became the first Mainland rock band to perform at SXSW, and two years living in New York City, honed the vision for XTX.

Nearly two decades of wild live shows and a bad-boy reputation have made XTX a mainstay headliner at major Chinese music festivals, and a legend among Chinese rock fans.

中国摇滚教父谢天笑

他是继崔健,汪峰,许巍,郑钧以后,第五位在中国北京工人体育馆和上海大舞台开个唱的内地摇滚音乐人, 也是中国摇滚乐坛上争议较少,几近公认的90年代以来的中国摇滚乐坛代表人物。

出生于山东淄博,谢天笑从1990年初开始创作音乐,1994组建首支乐队“出家的猎人”。1995年,组建“冷血动物”乐队。三人编制的“冷血动物”以狂暴的乐风和无以复加的疯狂演出横扫北京摇滚舞台,在当时中国Grunge音乐风起云涌的背景下,“冷血动物”声明鹊起。

谢天笑被媒体和乐迷公认为中国摇滚乐“现场之王”,他的歌和现场表演被无数人翻唱和模仿。在他的音乐作品中,距离现今已有2000多年历史的中国古老乐器“筝”与西方摇滚的完美融合, 使其顺理成章的创造出了全新的中国摇滚之声。与其他同时代中国摇滚乐队不同的是,谢天笑饱满内敛,充满中国意像的词作使他们的音乐更富于厚度和感染力。
