Legendary kiwi favourites, stellar* have today announced their first shows together in eight years! The multi award-winning group has just confirmed two March 2018 shows in Auckland (Tuning Fork, Friday 9 March) and Wellington (San Fran, Saturday 10 March) to follow their summer festival touring route.
This announcement follows their performance at the Vodafone NZ Music Awards last week, playing the legendary hit ‘Maxine’ as a tribute to NZ Music Hall of Fame inductee, Sharon O’Neill.
See stellar* live – March New Zealand shows:
Friday 9th March – Tuning Fork, Auckland
Saturday 10th March – San Fran, Wellington
Pre-sale tickets available at Ticketmaster from midday today (Wednesday 22nd). General ticket sales online from 9am, Thursday 23rd November.
Tickets to the Auckland show will also be available from Boh Runga Jewellery (95b Ponsonby Road, Auckland) from Thursday 23rd November.
The band still features the same line-up that released their first single on Sony Music NZ, ‘What You Do (Bastard)’, nearly twenty years ago in 1998. That’s Boh Runga(vocals, guitar), Andrew Maclaren (drums, programming), Kurt Shanks (bass) and Chris van de Geer (guitar).
“We had a ball putting together our version of Maxine for the awards, and we’ve been blown away by everyone’s feedback,” says Boh Runga of their VNZMA tribute performance for Sharon O’Neill. “We’re going to keep the fun rolling this summer with a short burst of dates. Can’t wait to play to everyone again.”
Outside of their Auckland and Wellington show dates, the band are booked to play three festivals around the country this summer:
