UK Virtuoso Jacob Collier Announces First Ever New Zealand Headline Dates for September

25 February 2019 - 0 Comments

Wunderkind composer-producer-multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier has announced two New Zealand dates for his global Djesse Tour. The UK artist will play his debut New Zealand shows at Auckland’s The Powerstation on Monday 2 September and Wellington’s Opera House on Wednesday 4 September before returning to Australia for Brisbane and Sydney shows.

Grammy-award winner Jacob Collier returns to Australia on the back of acclaimed sell-out shows in April of last year. The 24-year old prodigy has been dubbed by many as one of the most innovative, creative musicians of his generation, rising to popularity through his viral homemade multi-track YouTube videos.

Following on from chart-topping and multiple Grammy-winning debut In My Room, Jacob will bring the songs from his latest offering, Djesse Vol. 1,and yet-to-be released, Djesse Vol. 2, to New Zealand audiences this September.The first two volumes of a four-album cycle, Collier’s sophomore effort features a global cast of musical inspirations, and stretches the boundaries of music to unprecedented levels.

Jacob Collier’s new touring show scales up the concepts behind his original one-man-show to incorporate a band of multi-talented performers playing over 30 acoustic and electronic instruments. All the instruments on stage are linked together in a way that allows elements of each to interact together with a staggering array of sounds and textures taken from Jacob’s albums and adventures all over the world. This multi-instrument-multi-performer creature also sends messages to a custom-designed lighting system based on input from the performers, resulting in a tightly synchronised visual experience to accompany classics such as live looping and Jacob’s custom built harmoniser.

All of these together provide a new and uniquely “Jacobian” experience — a mix of human and technological elements, with the ultimate goal of bringing together as many people as possible through his incredible music.
