They’ve toured the world twice over since the release of their sophomore album Harlequin Dream, but this September will mark Boy & Bear’s first New Zealand dates in over two years.

Since the release of their second record, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart and has reached Gold sales in Australia, Boy & Bear have spent most of their time on the road bringing their live set to audiences near and far. Now it's our turn!

The band have plenty of catching up to do with New Zealand audiences, with two full-length albums now under their belts and an internationally acclaimed live performance honed to perfection.

Boy & Bear have been eager to return to the country following their brief visit early last year, where Queenstown provided the stunning backdrop for the video of Harlequin Dream’s debut single ‘Southern Sun’, which the NZ Herald called "a guitar-driven, Tom Petty-esque anthem which should be blasted loud." Watch the video here.

An extensive tour schedule spanning until the end of the year means this is the only opportunity for New Zealand fans to catch Boy & Bear live in 2014. The band have a track record for selling out tours, so be sure to secure tickets fast!

Click here to watch Boy & Bear’s video for their latest single ‘Bridges’, which was shot and produced by Oh Yeah Wow, the winners of last year’s J Award for Video of the Year for their work with Clubfeet.
