FOALS

An absolute math-rock juggernaut, FOALS is coming to New Zealand for one show at the Auckland Town Hall on Friday July 12 in the middle of a creative frenzy that has produced not one, but two new records. Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost (Part 1) was released in March, with Part 2 to follow later this year, signalling a return to the spasmodic angles of their debut Antidotes while simultaneously going further off-base than ever before.

From playing chaotic house parties in Oxford to becoming major festival headliners across Europe, Foals’ trajectory has been remarkable. Always eager to break boundaries, Foals’ new album ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1’ is the most ambitious statement of their career. It entered the UK charts at #2, with many critics tipping it as a contender for album of the year.

The band – Yannis Philippakis (vocals/guitar), Jimmy Smith (guitar), Jack Bevan (drums) and Edwin Congreave (keys) –will release ‘Part 2’ in the autumn.

“They’re two halves of the same locket,” explains Philippakis. “They can be listened to and appreciated individually, but fundamentally they are companion pieces.”

Foals have earned critical acclaim and fan devotion in equal measure, with highlights including Best Live Act at the Q Awards, Best Album at the NME Awards, 1.7 million album sales, and over half a billion streams at Spotify since 2015.

Their first visit to New Zealand since 2013, Foals will perform to Kiwi fans after headlining Australia’s Splendour in the Grass.

LIVE NATION & SECRET SOUNDS PRESENT
RUEL

- Bringing his Painkiller Tour to New Zealand - 

Ruel - Painkiller Tour - Press Shot 1.jpg

Vocal prodigy RUEL is returning to New Zealand for one show in Auckland at the Bruce Mason Centre on May 24. Counting Elton John and Khalid among his fans, RUEL is taking the globe by storm, smashing show records, and he’s only 16 years old. 

Tickets for go on sale at 11am Friday, April 12.

My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning 4pm Thursday April 11 until 9am Friday, April 12. 

Fans who sign up to the Audience Republic pre-sale beginning 4pm Thursday April 11 until 9am Friday, April 12 will get the chance to win a meet and greet + tickets. 

A transcendent new star on an unstoppable trajectory, the London-born, Sydney-based songwriter found himself on the ARIA podium as he took out the 2018 Breakthrough Artist gong for his soul-soaked banger Dazed and Confused, which landed in in triple j’s Hottest 100 alongside Younger, the youngest ever artist to win the coveted award.
 
Both tunes, taken from his ubiquitous debut EP Ready (+ 100 million global streams), were released amongst a tidal wave of hype which began to swell almost immediately around this young singer-songwriter as his extraordinary soul-tinged voice began to filter out.
 
His Like a Version rendition on triple j of Jack Garratt’s ‘Weathered’ alongside world-class producer and longtime mentor ‘M-Phazes’, showcased his undeniable singing chops and forced folks in the know, like Sir Elton John and Khalid to tip their hats.”
 
With these five-star endorsements, it was inevitable that fanbases would start mobilising worldwide and, with the help of ARIA platinum certified single ‘Younger’ and most recent heartbreaker Not Thinkin’ Bout You (check out the remix featuring Grammy nominated rapper GoldLink), shows have been selling out all over the globe.

In fact, Ruel’s first ever show in New York City late last year also became his first ever sold out NYC appearance, such is the demand for his addictive blend of glitchy electro-soul beds and vocals reminiscent of James Blake, Frank Ocean or even Khalid himself.

Last seen in New Zealand in October for an intimate show, RUEL is moving on up quickly and will hit the Bruce Mason Centre in Auckland on Friday May 24 in peak form after completing a run of his first headline shows through Asia and Australia where he’ll be the youngest male artist to headline the iconic, Sydney Opera House…twice. Ruel’s raw talent is giving the industry a much-needed shakeup – don’t miss seeing this record breaker!
