Michael Kiwanuka Support Act Announced


Michael Kiwanuka Support Act Announced

Its always a great sign when touring musicians choose their support act themselves. Michael Kiwanuka has done just that, announcing that his favourite music discovery of-late, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, will tour in support of Kiwanukas dates in NZ this April.

English singer / songwriter Benjamin Francis Leftwich is said to have a voice that will “stop you in your tracks with the gentlest of touches”. It has also been described as “haunting and sublimely other-worldly”. Inspired by the likes of Ryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen, Arcade Fire and Sigur Ros, you wont want to miss his performance in such intimate venues.

Micahel Kiwanuka, Mercury Prize nominee and winner of the prestigious BBC Sound in 2012, will perform two intimate New Zealand shows in early April, with Benjamin Francis Leftwich playing support:

Thursday 4 April - Holy Trinity Cathedral in Auckland
Friday 5 April – Old St Pauls in Wellington

Tickets Selling Fast. Don’t miss out.
Experience the magic at Michael Kiwanuka’s two New Zealand shows.

TICKETS AVAIALABLE NOW through Ticketmaster and http://www.nztix.co.nz/
