Greg Johnson Announces He’s Leaving A Year-Long La Lockdown For New Zealand Winter Tour

07 April 2021 - 0 Comments

After a prolonged Californian lockdown, Greg Johnson is over the moon to be returning home for his nationwide tour, Time Is A Traveller, which coincides with the release of his brand-new album, Tilt Your Interior.

For his first New Zealand tour since 2019, Greg Johnson joins forces with his legendary band Ben King, Wayne Bell and Mark Hughes. Special guest Dianne Swann will open the shows, celebrating the release of her new album The War On Peace of Mind.

“My quarantine is booked and I’m great at holing up in Hotel rooms so once they set me free, I’ll be rearing to go with my best line-up of songs and musicians since the end of the Gulf War.” Says Johnson.

“After a gloomy year of lockdown and seclusion in LA, and a deep aversion to Zoom concerts, real, interactive, cozy live shows feel more vital than ever, and I have many stories to tell. It’s an understatement to say I’m excited to be touring again and playing some of my favourite New Zealand towns and venues, as well as some I haven’t been to in more than twenty years.”

Plus1 proudly presents Greg Johnson live, he will play:

Thursday 24 June at Room Twenty5 in NELSON

Friday 25 June at the Blue Smoke in CHRISTCHURCH

Saturday 26 June at the Grainstore Gallery in OAMARU

Thursday 1 July at the 4th Wall Theatre in NEW PLYMOUTH

Friday 2 July at the Meow in WELLINGTON

In Auckland, the iconic Powerstation venue will be transformed with cabaret-style table seating helping to create the perfect atmosphere to end the tour in style.

Details about the new album Tilt Your Interior and career-spanning box set are at Gregjohnsonmusic.com.

At the shows, Greg Johnson fans can look forward to thirty years of great hits including Isabelle, Don’t Wait Another Day, Liberty, Save Yourself, It's Been So Long, Now the Sun is Out, Looking Out On Monday, I Got Opinions, Swagger and more.

Accolades include two Tui NZ Music Awards, eight top 20 albums and a coveted Silver Scroll, for Liberty.

Of his new album, Tilt Your Interior, Johnson says: “I have waited 5 years to make this record and despite the pandemic I’ve pulled together some amazing players from around the world, including my old pals Ted Brown and Ben King. Technology made this album possible but some intense personal events the last few years have given the songs a little extra gravitas I think, and I am pretty thrilled with how it sounds. My box-set subscribers have been receiving advance singles from the new album, and their feedback and support has been really inspiring. Once again I have my loyal fanbase to thank for surviving these times and hopefully I’m rewarding them with some nice tunes.”
