BENEE To Kick Off World Tour In New Zealand In 2022

22 November 2021 - 0 Comments

Indie-pop superstar BENEE has today added a further three shows to her already sprawling list of shows across Aotearoa! Dunedin, Auckland, and Wellington have been added to the tour, along with a huge slate of shows across Europe and North America, with BENEE hitting the road from February 2022 to share new music and memories with fans across the globe.

BENEE will visit every corner of the country, hitting ten different towns and cities joined by special guests, There's A Tuesday. BENEE recently released her newest single Doesn’t Matter, her first taste of new music since her debut album Hey U X hit the shelves in November 2020. The Supalonely singer has had an incredible 18 months, from releasing the album, to sharing it with Kiwi crowds on a sold-out eight-date tour in late 2020 and being named on Forbes 30 under 30 Asia 2021 list. Worldwide streams in the billions have made her one of the most exciting new acts to have emerged anywhere.

BENEE shares her excitement with fans:I am beyond excited to announce that my 2022 World Tour kicks off in NZ in Feb next year!!!!!!!!!” says BENEE. “It’s been such a long time coming & we’ve lived through a lot in these weird times but shows starting up again has rly got everyone sososososo happyyy!!!! I can’t wait to get back out there & meet all of u and play a bunch of new musiiiiiicccc!!

Following the success of her October 2020 tour, BENEE recognised that fans outside the main centres don’t often get the opportunity to experience full-scale pop concerts in their own backyards. From February 2022, she will bring her trademark infectious energy to crowds across Aotearoa (and the world!) to get people up on their feet for a groove-worthy night.

Tickets start from $59.90 (excluding booking fees) and go on sale at 11am Friday, November 26. VIP experiences will also be available for the tour, giving fans the chance to meet BENEE pre-show, gain early access to the venue for a prime viewing spot, and receive an exclusive tour gift. VIP experiences start at $139.90 (excluding booking fees).

Live Nation customers will have the chance to get tickets early to the new dates during the pre-sale starting at 10am Thursday, November 25 until 11am Friday, November 26.

BENEE is the dreamy voice of a disaffected generation. She broke out around the world with Supalonely, an alt-pop ballad about unwanted isolation, a sentiment that found her a lot of friends in 2020. Billions of streams later, she returned with the guest-packed, yet highly personal Hey u x and a southern summer of sold out shows around her home country.

She has not only performed on a string of major television shows including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Late Night With Seth Meyers, but appeared alongside doting fan Elton John on his Apple Music Rocket Hour radio show.

Additionally, she was named Apple Up Next Artist July 2020, nominated for MTV VMA “Push Best New Artist” 2020, MTV EMA “Best Push” Artist 2020, E! People’s Choice Awards New Artist of 2020. She has collected seven New Zealand Aotearoa Music Awards in the past two years, twice taking home Single of the Year and Best Pop Artist categories, and is nominated in a further three categories in the 2021 awards – Te Kaipuoro Takitahi Toa | Best Solo Artist, The Edge Te Kaipuoro Arotini Toa | Best Pop Artist, and Recorded Music NZ Te Pukaemi o te Tau | Album of the Year. Her single Glitter won the APRA Silver Scroll songwriting prize in October 2020.

Supalonely is certified Platinum in eight countries including the US. In Australia, Supalonely, Glitter and Soaked are all Double Platinum records and Evil Spider and Find An Island are Gold – an impressive feat also matched in her home country.

Supporting BENEE, will be one of New Zealand’s most exciting up-and-coming indie rock/pop bands, There's A Tuesday. Picked to support by BENEE herself, the group consists of two female front women, Nat Hutton and Minnie Robberds, both on guitars and vocals, with Angus Murray on the drums and Joel Becker holding it down on the bass. After receiving critical acclaim for their debut EP in November 2020, followed by a busy summer festival season, There’s A Tuesday are poised to have a massive 12 months.

Get ready to experience BENEE before she embarks on a massive global tour! This is not to be missed.
