The Iconic Herbie Hancock to tour New Zealand this October, with his stellar band

08 July 2024 - 0 Comments

Living legend Herbie Hancock is set to light up stages across New Zealand in October, in his first visit since 2019, promising an electrifying evening from one of music’s most revered names.

The tour will commence at Auckland’s Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre on October 8, followed by Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington on October 9. It heads to Sydney for 2 shows at the Opera House Concert Hall on October 11 and 12, followed by Canberra Theatre on October 14, QPAC Concert Hall in Brisbane on October 17, and a starring role at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival – Sidney Myer Music Bowl on October 19. Next stop is Adelaide’s Festival Theatre on October 20, concluding at Perth Concert Hall on October 22.

A Live Nation pre-sale commences Wednesday, July 10 at 9am, running until Thursday, July 11 at 8am.

General public tickets go on sale on Thursday, July 11 at 9am. All times local.

NB: Opera House pre-sales commence July 9 at 9am, and Sidney Myer Music Bowl general on sale commences July 9 from 1pm (local).

With a career spanning seven decades and a staggering 14 Grammy awards, few artists have had more influence on modern music than Herbie Hancock. The creative force behind timeless classics like Cantaloupe Island, Chameleon, and Rockit, Hancock's genre-transcending appeal and unmistakable style have cemented his status as "today’s greatest living artist," as extolled by The Washington Post. As the immortal Miles Davis said in his autobiography, “Herbie was the step after Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, and I haven’t heard anybody yet who has come after him.” He has transcended limitations and genres while maintaining his unmistakable voice, amazing audiences across the globe.

This is an opportunity not to be missed – join this icon of modern music as he takes to the stage across New Zealand and Australia this October.
