British India

^^

When: Saturday 9th December
Where: Metro Theatre

After five hugely successful albums, British India found themselves at crossroads. ‘Forgetting The Future’ is the story of them destroying their world in order to live in it. For the first time, the band teamed up with an external producer; voyaging into previously unknown sonic territory with Holy Holy’s Oscar Dawson. This revolutionary approach has led the band to create an explosive album that is their most ambitious and textured to date. “We were tapping into the same ferocity you feel when you first start writing songs,” vocalist Declan Melia says. “Just going for it, getting songs out without overthinking them, fast and hard. The way I see it, the sound is futuristic but it’s still raw.” Lead single Precious is currently spinning on rotation at triple j. Its stylistic new video comes courtesy of the talented team at Oh Yeah Wow. Smoke, colour and flames surround the band, as visuals vividly portray the tragic beauty of momentary bliss. It’s incredibly executed and out now for your viewing pleasure. British India have earned themselves an honest reputation as one of the country’s hardest working bands, and their upcoming national tour reaffirms this. With 10 expansive new tracks added to their repertoire, the band will be hitting up cities all over the country for three months, kicking things off this September.

Byrne & Kelly

^^

When: Tuesday 6th February
Where: Factory Theatre

What began as Celtic Thunder's Neil Byrne and Ryan Kelly performing a series of shows together called 'Acoustic By Candlelight' back in 2012 quickly turned into what is now known as Byrne and Kelly. Driven by dynamic vocal harmonies, the duo seamlessly dives into combining genres like traditional Irish and Americana to create a fresh, Celtic folk sound. In 2013 Byrne and Kelly was awarded 'Best Duo in a Concert, Pub or Festival' and 'Best New Album' for Acoustically Irish by the Irish Music Association. In addition, Acoustically Irish took the Billboard #1 position, World Album #1 on iTunes in the United States, Australia and Canada, Amazon #1 World Album and cdbaby Global Chart #1. The duo's second album release, Live in Australia, was recorded live at The Vanguard in Sydney, Australia in June of 2014. Following the release later in the year, Live in Australia quickly became the #1 World Album on Billboard, iTunes, Amazon and cdbaby.

Where: Qudos Bank Arena

Special guest: Dua Lipa

Grammy Award winner and world-renowned, multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/producer/director/musician, BRUNO MARS is set to return to New Zealand and Australia next February and March as part of his 24K Magic World Tour. The ‘Uptown Funk’ superstar sold out arenas across Australia in 2014 and fans have been begging for his return ever since. With countless accolades including five Grammy Awards, being named #1 on Forbes list of top 30 people under 30 and an ARIA #1, Live Nation is thrilled to bring the pop/soul/funk maestro back for dates in Auckland, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth. Tickets for all shows go on sale this Friday, May 5. Please refer below for local on-sale times. Currently touring through Europe and the UK (ahead of an extensive trek across North America), London’s The Evening Standard bestowed a 5-star review on Mars’ O2 Arena shows exclaiming: “One of the greatest showmen in pop music right now”. “Only Uptown Funk, his biggest hit to date, could polish off what was a thrilling masterclass in showmanship from a sensational performer.” A multiple GRAMMY® Award winner and 20 time GRAMMY® nominee, Bruno Mars has sold over 170 million singles worldwide and over 26 million albums worldwide, affirming him as one of the best-selling artists of all time. The critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, producer, director, and musician recently dominated charts with the worldwide smash single, “Uptown Funk.” The RIAA diamond certified smash made history as the longest-leading Billboard “Hot 100” single of the 2010s, and is only the 10th single in the chart’s 57-year history to spend at least 14 weeks at #1. “Uptown Funk” has received a number of honors, among them three 2016 GRAMMY® Awards, including the coveted “Record of the Year” award. In addition, the “Uptown Funk” companion video received the 2016 MTV Video Music Award for “Best Male Video.” Mars returned to the Super Bowl Halftime stage this past February to perform alongside Beyoncé and Coldplay. Mars’ historic 2014 performance made NFL history as the second most watched Super Bowl Halftime Show ever, earning a record-breaking total viewership of over 115.3 million, all while being the youngest artist ever to serve as the sole Super Bowl Halftime headliner. According to Billboard, Mars scored his first five “Hot 100” #1 singles faster than any male artist since Elvis Presley. As a singer, songwriter and producer, Bruno Mars has now amassed an incredible catalog of 35 “Hot 100” hits to date. Renowned for his electrifying on stage retro showmanship, don’t miss this opportunity to experience one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time. Don’t believe me? Just watch.
