James Bay announces NZ show for February 2016.

James Bay has announced that he will play the Auckland Town Hall on February 9th next year, which will be the UK singer-songwriter’s debut New Zealand performance.

Tickets to the show go on sale from August 20th - with a Frontier pre-sale available on August 17th.

"Bay’s meteoric rise to fame over the past twelve months has seen his critically acclaimed debut album Chaos And The Calm (out now through Universal Music Australia) peak at #1 in the UK, #3 in Australia and #10 in New Zealand, selling over a million copies worldwide.

Recorded at Nashville’s iconic Blackbird Studios with producer Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Modest Mouse, Cold War Kids), the album’s combination of rock, soul, Americana and blues set against emotionally charged lyrics are what place Bay at the forefront of 2015’s international music scene.

Smash hit ‘Let It Go’ is dominating the charts, having recently been certified platinum in Australia and gold in New Zealand and latest single ‘Scars’ is set to follow in its footsteps. Adding to the achievements, Bay is the most recent recipient of the BRIT Critics’ Choice Award, joining an elite group of past winners including Sam Smith, Adele and Florence & The Machine, and most recently the video for his breakthrough track ‘Hold Back The River’ (certified triple platinum in Australia) received a nomination at the MTV VMAs for Artist To Watch.

Kicking off on January 30th at Fremantle Arts Centre before continuing on to Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland, the tour will see the 24 year old singer-songwriter captivate audiences with his moving yet contemporary folk-rock ballads. This year alone, Bay has sold out three Brixton O2 Academy shows, following a massive headline tour of America and Canada.

At his pair of sold-out debut Australian performances earlier this year, James Bay delighted fans with a taste of Chaos and the Calm prior to its release. Those who were able to secure tickets to a very special display of songwriting prowess in an intimate setting that left fans and critics alike in awe of Bay’s raw talent.

This is the tour Australia and New Zealand have been waiting for. With a penchant of selling out shows in minutes flat, don’t miss the chance to catch this incredibly talented performer take to the stage on his biggest tour yet."
