AUCKLAND, NZ (April 4, 2019) – Later this month, American megastar, POST MALONE will commence his whopping big 10-date Australian arena tour on April 26, before landing in Auckland for two mammoth shows at Spark Arena on May 11 and 12.
 
The Saturday, May 11 show is sold-out, however limited tickets are still available for Sunday, May 12.

In readiness for the history-making, multi-platinum selling superstars arrival, ‘Posty’ has today confirmed that JADEN SMITH and TYLA YAWEH will join him across all Australian and New Zealand tour dates – taking the excitement level of fans up a notch, or two.
 
Last spotted ringing up customers groceries at Woolies in Melbourne just last month, fashion icon, talented actor and musician, JADEN SMITH, returns down under to join Post Malone on his Australian and New Zealand tour dates. Making his big screen acting debut in “The Pursuit of Happyness” in 2006 starring opposite his father, Smith’s performance won him an MTV Movie Award in 2007 for “Breakthrough Performance” and gathered universal acclaim for his nuanced and heartwarming performance. In November 2017, Smith released his album “SYRE” via his own MSFTS Music/Roc Nation label. The album debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Rap Chart, Hip Hop / R&B Chart and as #23 on the Billboard 200 and recently surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify worldwide. Smith was named one of TIME’s ‘Top 30 Influential Teens’ of 2017 and one of Pandora’s Artists to Watch of 2018. Smith dropped his album “Cool Tapes Vol. 2” in November 2014 exclusively on his app; Jaden Experience. The app is the first to be released in a new platform that allows artists to distribute their music directly to their fans creating an album-like experience through a dedicated platform. Next up Smith will release his latest album ERYS in the top of Q2. Serving as the face of Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection, Smith’s greatest endeavour has been his own clothing/lifestyle brand, MSFTSrep. Smith is a passionate advocate for a cleaner world and has been honoured for his leadership and action on environmental issues, which includes cofounding ‘JUST Water’, the most environmentally conscious, commercially sold water bottle.
 
With a ockstar attitude and a creative wingspan that encompasses pop, rap and R&B, TYLA YAWEH has rocketed to ubiquity in a relatively short period of time, bringing his diverse spate of tracks to life with Post Malone while on tour with him across the UK and USA. His debut project “Heart Full of Rage”, released February 2019, was the culmination of bottling up emotions while on the road and capturing those sentiments on a 10-track collection of songs that are introspective and insightful, matched by a club-ready sound. His recent success may be a blur, but it’s been a gradual ascent for Yaweh. Growing up in Florida, his family life exposed him to everything from church music to area rappers like Lil Boosie and Trick Daddy. He began performing at only 14 years of age and after his first track ‘Alone’ took flight on a file-sharing site “Hulkshare” Yaweh was tasting the beginnings of where is career might be headed. After moving to California on a dollar and a dream, nineteen year old Yaweh caught the attention of managers Tes Siyoum and Bobby Greenleaf, as well as Post Malone’s manager Dre London, setting his career on a slingshot path ever since.
 
Post Malone stirs hip-hop, R&B, and alternative into his own sonic “sauce” that’s both intoxicating and invigorating. “I describe what I do as sauce,” he affirms. “You can turn up to it. You can chill to it. You can do anything to it. It makes you feel some type of way, or it makes you want to party. It just comes naturally.”
 
His recipe has yielded massive success so far. The Dallas native grew up listening to his dad’s Metallica, Johnny Cash, UGK, and The Notorious B.I.G. records before trading his Guitar Hero controller for an electric guitar at eleven-years-old. After graduating high school and releasing his first mixtape online, he picked up and headed west to Los Angeles, which would become his current home. Despite “partying too much” and not “having any money for cigarettes or Ramen,” the 19-year-old met production duo FKi and started making music.
 
“I wanted to create something everybody can get down to and get drunk to,” he continues. “People who like hip-hop will like it. People who like folk will dig it. People who like pop will be into it.”
 
One day, Post created the beat for “White Iverson” in his bedroom, laid down the vocals, and uploaded it to Soundcloud. The response proved overwhelming. Before he knew it, the budding star had Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller tweeting him, Complex, Noisey, The Fader, and Hypebeast singing his praises, 14 incendiary SXSW performances under his belt, and major labels knocking at his door.
 
The ethereal soundscape of “White Iverson” gives way to a charismatic and catchy declaration for Post. “The first time I got braids I was like ‘I feel like I’m the White Iverson’; I made the beat and recorded it. The vibe was right, and the stars aligned. The song itself is about confidence. I used to be really shy, and I started to develop this new swagger. ‘White Iverson’ was when we knew we had something people would fuck with.”
 
His uncanny ability to cook up a 21st century “sauce” of genres transformed the multi-platinum Dallas, TX maverick into the “#1 Debut Hip-Hop Artist of 2016,” following the release of his RIAA double-platinum certified full-length debut album, “Stoney”.
 
After signing to Republic Records in August 2015, Post immediately hit the studio to work on more music. Incorporating not only his inimitable voice but his production and instrumentation, it’s as enigmatic and enthralling as he is. His sophomore release “beerbongs & bentleys” arrived earlier this year and broke Spotify’s streaming records, clocking up more than 78.7 million streams on its release day – crushing the previous mark set by Drake’s “More Life” with a comparable 61.3 million hits – and consequently set fire to chart records everywhere, including one held by The Beatles since 1964.
 
With “beerbongs & bentleys” string of bonafide hits including ‘Psycho’ and ‘Rockstar’, the latter of which hit No.1 on the NZ Singles Chart, went four-times platinum and accumulated over 1 billion streams on Spotify – Posty has totally captivated New Zealand fans. His highly anticipated return to Auckland following his sold-out debut show in January 2018 will see him take over the stage at Spark Arena for two solid nights and is surely not to be missed.

[Events] New Zealand Shows – JON BELLION THE GENRE DEFYING NEW YORK ARTIST CONFIRMS NEW ZEALAND TOUR DATE

Source: MIL-OSI Submissions

Source: LiveNation

AUCKLAND, NZ (April 3, 2019) – The rumors are true. JON BELLION, the 28-year-old songwriter and producer today announces he will visit New Zealand for one huge show at the Powerstation this November. Known best for his hit single, ‘All Time Low’, which went platinum in New Zealand, Bellion will begin his tour in Australia at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre on November 6 before finishing in Auckland at the Powerstation on November 10.
 
Tickets go on sale at 10am Friday, April 5.
 
My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning 10am Thursday, April 4 until 9am Friday, April 5.
 
For complete tour and ticket information, visit: livenation.co.nz
 
Jon Bellion is a self-made man. The New York-based singer, songwriter and producer has built a remarkable following by sharing his music directly with listeners and to date, now boasts over half a billion streams worldwide. First getting his start with a series of mixtapes featuring his own original songs – all recorded in his parents’ basement, Bellion managed to give away more than 200,000 free downloads, subsequently building him a huge fanbase.
 
In 2016 Jon released his full-length debut, “The Human Condition”, which entered the Billboard 200 at #5 and quickly earned a spot-on Billboard’s “Best Albums of 2016 (So Far)” list. Bellion’s first single, ‘All Time Low’ was certified Gold, named in NPR’s “Top 100 songs of 2016”, and skyrocketed into the top 15 across US Top 40 radio. Operating in duality as a highly sought-after collaborator, Bellion co-wrote and produced ‘Trumpets’ for Jason Derulo and co-wrote the GRAMMY Award winning, 10x-Platinum hit ‘The Monster’ for Eminem and Rihanna. He also co-wrote and co-produced Christina Aguilera’s 2018 single, ‘Fall in Line’, which featured Demi Lovato.
 
His latest album, “Glory Sound Prep”, illuminates the vast scope of his genre-defying musical and lyrical vision; threading together pop, R&B, hip-hop, alternative, and rock over the course of the ten-track trip, welcoming listeners into his world with open arms. Having toured relentlessly over the past few years, Bellion has not only completed two huge sold out tours of his own, but also shared the stage with artists such as Twenty Øne Piløts, opening up for them across their 2017 North American arena tour, even claiming a coveted festival slot at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in 2017.
 
Following up on a promise made in 2017, Bellion finally makes his way to New Zealand for one massive headline show – an opportunity not to be missed!

[Events] New Zealand Performances – MATT CORBY ANNOUNCES SUPPORT MANE FOR THE APRIL 2019 NEW ZEALAND LEG OF THE ‘RAINBOW VALLEY’ TOUR

Source: MIL-OSI Submissions

Source: LiveNation

AUCKLAND, NZ (March 29, 2019) – MATT CORBY today announces the special guest MANE joining him for his Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch shows in April as part of his Rainbow Valley nationwide tour.
 
With a haunting and high energy live set, MANE’s explosive indie pop is something that has to be seen to be fully believed. With big bold vocals and tunes that have any crowd singing and dancing along to the saddest of songs, you can’t help but have a great time at a MANE show. Her 2018 breakout singles Chasing Butterflies and Save Yourself have featured strongly across triple j, have seen her highlighted as Apple Music’s Artist of the week and taking home the trophy for Best Solo artist at the South Australian Music Awards. Reviews for her live show have seen strong comparisons to Lorde, Florence and the Machine, and with new music set to drop mid 2019, it’s clear there is more to look forward to from this enigmatic artist.
 
Final tickets for all shows on sale now.

For complete tour, ticket and information, visit: livenation.co.nz

The Australian leg of the tour is currently underway with Matt and the band playing songs from the new album Rainbow Valley to audiences for the first time. This will be Matt’s first headline tour of New Zealand since the Telluric Tour in 2016, along with his recent performance at Rhythm and Alps over New Years Eve in Wanaka.

For a decade, the multi-platinum-selling musician has been pushing his own boundaries, embracing a journey of self-discovery that’s seen him wrestle a few pre-conceptions and stare down his share of demons. With two ARIA Song of the Year awards and a #1 debut album behind him, Corby can genuinely lay claim to some hard-earned perspective.

Now we see a new chapter in Corby’s life with the release of his much anticipated second album Rainbow Valley, recorded in the idyllic surroundings of Byron Bay’s Music Farm studios. Rainbow Valley was released last November which contains singles ‘No Ordinary Life’ and ‘All Fired Up’ and current single ‘Miracle Love’.
 
Matt Corby’s Rainbow Valley tour kicked off in Australia on March 21 and will be coming to New Zealand mid April – full dates, venues and ticketing details below:

[Events] New Zealand Entertainment Sector – half•alive ANNOUNCE GLOBAL HEADLINING TOUR PERFORMED ON JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! LAST NIGHT

NEW ZEALAND (March 18, 2019) – Long Beach based trio half•alive have announced their global headline tour. The tour comes to New Zealand on August 21 before the band embarks on a 21-date North American tour throughout September and October. The tour wraps in Glasgow, UK on November 17.
 
Tickets for the New Zealand show goes on sale at 10am on Friday, March 22.

Last night half•alive made their late night television debut with a very special performance of their single “still feel.” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Check out the incredible and unique performance HERE. “still feel.” is currently skyrocketing up the charts at Alternative Radio, currently sitting within the Top 25.
 
Earlier this year, half•alive (Josh Taylor [vocals], Brett Kramer [drums], and J Tyler Johnson [bass]) dropped their new track “arrow” along with a video directed by lead vocalist Josh Taylor today. “arrow” (along with “still feel.”) are available at all digital retails providers now via RCA Records.
 
“arrow” is the first new release for half•alive since catapulting into the zeitgeist with their massive viral 2018 breakout “still feel.” Powered by a slick beat, handclaps, warbling bass, wild horns, shimmering keys, and an ecstatic falsetto-inflected chant, “I still feel a•live,” it became a clarion call for the boys—oddly perfect for either a midsummer festival or a dance sequence from Pulp Fiction. Bringing the song to life, Josh drew on his film school background and self-directed an impressively choreographed video evoking vintage pops of color and the kind of throwback seventies spirit. The video organically attracted shares among fans and has already surpassed 17 million views. Additionally, half•alive has garnered acclaim from NPR’s coveted “All Songs Considered”, TIME and more.
 
Additionally, half•alive recently wrapped their completely sold out first-ever headlining tour and are currently in the studio working on their debut album.

AUCKLAND, NZ (March 13, 2019) – Australian producer and multi-instrumentalist JACK RIVER is bringing her ambitious psych-pop sound to New Zealand for the first time. Audiences will get the opportunity to witness this unique artist in an intimate performance at The Tuning Fork on March 30.

It’s been an enormous year for Aussie artist Holly Rankin, otherwise known as her alter ego Jack River. Off the back of the release of her debut album Sugar Mountain in 2018, widespread critical acclaim poured in while also garnering her three ARIA nominations for best breakthrough artist, best pop release and engineer of the year.
 
The music of Jack River tells a painful personal story after the tragic death of her beloved younger sister in a freak accident eleven years ago. “These songs are all visions of youth that I was almost involved in, but I’m only really able to reach towards it,” she says of her debut release. Working with her on her first body of work was visionary mixer Spike Stent (Beyonce, Grimes, Frank Ocean, Madonna) and fellow co-producers and multi-instrumentalists Xavier Dunn and John Castle. Her songwriting has seen her making bills on festivals across Australia and featuring on her latest hit track Sugar, with hit DJ duo Peking Duk. New Zealand is next to bear witness to Jack River’s spacey riffs and melodic pop highs.

[Events] New Zealand Arts Events – Auckland rappers credit success to youth mentoring charity

Source: MIL-OSI Submissions

Source: Lassoo Media

From the likes of Savage and Kings, Church and AP are the next kiwi rap duo to watch, with their hit single ‘Ready Or Not’ the most Shazamed song in New Zealand before its official release in 2018.

Church and AP comprise of Aucklanders, Elijah Manu, 17 (Church) and Albert Purcell, 18 (AP). The duo recorded their first album, Thorough Bread, through The Crescendo Trust of Aotearoa (CTOA) in the Te Atatu community centre. CTOA is a local community outreach programme and non-for-profit charity that mentors youth. Elijah and Albert thank CTOA for their constant support, experience and expertise, without the trust’s help this EP would not have been possible.

“We’re really a testament to the success of community outreach programmes. A lot of people think they are for troubled youth and that it leads nowhere, but ‘Ready Or Not’ was made in the CTOA studio. It was made in a room probably no bigger than your bathroom,” says Elijah.

Church first collaborated with CTOA in August 2017 with AP joining in March 2018. The duo worked closely with Izak Kennedy, who started as a mentee before becoming a mentor in 2015. Over the course of the year, Church & AP recorded nine tracks for their EP. Izak is a skilled bassist and drummer, with expertise in music production, digital synths, mixing and beat making.

“We are immensely proud to have been a part of Church & AP’s growth into one of NZ’s premier Hip-Hop acts, none of which would have been possible without the Crescendo Trust’s endless resources, skill set and patience. The process has opened doors for not only the duo but myself that I never believed would be possible,” says Izak.

CTOA was created by Blindspott and City of Souls member Marcus Powell in 2012. CTOA allows mentees to work alongside industry professionals via mentoring, personal development and training in music, film, photography, media and communications. This includes song writing, beat making, arrangement, production, recording, studio time, instruments, microphone knowledge, stage presence, photography and live act. The mentees then get the opportunity to present their work in front of live audiences and earn money from their content.  CTOA have helped over 2000 youth across Auckland. Marcus Powell says Church & AP have enormous talent and their story is one of the many reasons why he started CTOA.

“Church & AP are so organic, their song ‘Ready Or Not’ is a classic. I started CTOA because I want to inspire positive change in our youth and music is a universal language that binds us all. It’s been a privilege to help Elijah and Albert on their creative journey,” says Marcus.

Elijah and Albert met in year nine after expressing a shared love for Chance the Rapper. The duo started making music together at 16 and since then they’ve had over 756,000 streams on Spotify. This year alone they finished their NZ Community tour and released two new singles ‘Loud as Hell’ and ‘Peños’.

After completely selling out his Australian season of Wonderbox in 2014 and Round the World in 2017 – Respite will be one not to be missed.
 
“It’s thrilling to see Howard with fire in his belly.”
★★★★★ Metro
 
“World domination is looming… he has grown darker, angrier and more satirical on stage. His sets deal with everything from foreign policy to his fear of death, and he rages as much as he teases.”
