Courtney Barnett Adds Auckland Show to her NZ tour – Tickets on Sale Now

Tickets to Courtney Barnett’s show at Auckland Town Hall on Sunday 25 July go on sale TODAY, Monday 31 May at 1pm.

Presented as part of Elemental Festival, the Auckland date rounds out Barnett’s solo tour of Aotearoa this July, her first live performances in over 12 months.

Aside from the Auckland show, the tour is nearly entirely sold out, with limited tickets remaining for the Hamilton and Tauranga shows only.

Having been grounded in 2020 care of the global pandemic, Barnett made the best of a bad situation and wrote and recorded a new record. That drops later this year, but before it does the maestro is touring her solo show to all corners of Aotearoa – a country she’s adored touring in the past and a place she considers herself lucky to have the opportunity to return to.

Courtney BarnettWith nine dates at some of New Zealand’s favourite venues, local audiences are in for a treat as Barnett dials things right down and prepares to deliver gems from her catalogue in an intimate setting.

After years of touring with her thunderous band around the globe, the performer recently found herself craving the simplicity of her early days as a straight up singer-songwriter.

Armed with just a guitar, her renowned banter and some of the best indie folk songs of the past decade, she toured North America throughout the pre-pandemic months of 2020 like she had never done before.

Those shows saw Barnett at both her most raw and personal. She played town halls, barns, churches, dive bars, haunted hotels, ski-lodges, theatres and studios, all to enraptured audiences, who couldn’t quite believe they were watching the artist in this mode.

For Barnett, the simplicity and honesty of performing solo was an inspirational salve; a way to fall back in love with the art and craft of song. This is the Courtney Barnett New Zealand gets to witness in July, on what will be an unmissable tour.
