David Kilgour Supports Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds New Zealand Tour

Arch Hill were already pretty excited about the prospect of seeing Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds in New Zealand. So, wahey!, as you can imagine it was pretty good news when we heard that David Kilgour was specifically requested to play a unique low key acoustic set to open the show. He will be joined by the talented Sam Scott of the Phoenix Foundation on keys and additional guitar ? and the excellent Tony de Raad of the Heavy Eights (and formerly Lanky) working the strings. Look out for the shows at the Wellington Town Hall on Thursday the 12th of May, and the St James in Auckland on the 13th of May (already sold out!)
