New Zealand's #1 award winning artist is finally coming home! In what will be her first ever New Zealand headline tour, Frontier Touring and Brent Eccles Entertainment are stoked to bring you four epic shows across the country!
LORDE will floor her home country audiences by transporting her full international show to our four major cities. This is her largest stage production to date that flaunts cutting edge lighting and technology, and boosts her show to a visual and sonically theatrical experience.
About her upcoming tour Ella said "I've been itching to do a New Zealand tour ever since the Silo Park show, which was the most amazing crowd I've had yet. Kiwi audiences are the best, and I'm so happy to be playing the final shows for Pure Heroine here. It's only right I come full circle, back to where it all started".
Bill Bailey - Limboland
1 Nov 2014 (Sat) - 2 Nov 2014 (Sun)
Michael Fowler Centre, Wellington
The gap between how we imagine our lives to be and how they really are is the subject of Bill’s new show Limboland. With his trademark intelligence and sharp wit, he tells tales of finding himself in this halfway place.
From his countless global travels, he recounts the hilarious saga of a disastrous family trip to Norway to see the Northern Lights. He rails against a world that doesn’t match up to our expectations and contemplates the true nature of happiness. And no Bill Bailey show would be complete without music, so we have Bill’s version of the protest song, a heart-rending country and western ballad played on a Bible, and a fabulously downbeat version of Happy Birthday.
Don’t miss your chance to see Bill Bailey! Returning to New Zealand after his sold out tour in 2012.

Nick Cave will visit Australia and New Zealand in November and December 2014 to perform a series of rare solo concerts.
Supported by a small ensemble of musicians Nick will be presenting songs from right across his considerable catalogue, including from the stunning 2013 Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds release ‘Push The Sky Away’ which achieved pole position in the Australian and New Zealand charts (and five other countries). The record has since collected numerous accolades in Cave's homeland including gold sales status and two ARIA Awards.
Nick last toured the region in 2013 with the Bad Seeds for the release of ‘Push the Sky Away’ in what was a spectacular run of sold out shows in some of Australia’s most revered live music spaces. This very special and more intimate concert tour will see Nick perform in some of the more majestic theatres and auditoriums in Australia and NZ.
