BLISS N ESO announce 'Off The Grid' NZ tour this July

BLISS N ESO ANNOUNCE OFF THE GRID NEW ZEALAND TOUR THIS JULY + NEW ALBUM OUT FRI 28 APRIL

With just one week to go until the release of Australian hip hop group Bliss n Eso’s hugely anticipated sixth album Off The Grid (out Fri 28 Apr), Frontier Touring + Illusive Presents are pleased to announce the trio will hit the road for their first ever New Zealand headline national tour this July.

Bliss n Eso are no strangers to success. They currently hold the record over the ditch for the largest local hip hop tour ever, with over 55,000 fans in attendance. Adding to this, they have three certified platinum albums in their homeland, and have won APRA and ARIA awards for their efforts.

Kicking off at Auckland’s Neck of the Woods, the Off The Grid Tour will see one of Australia’s most respected and successful groups make their way down the country performing in Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown also.

“We can’t wait to get on the road in front of our fans! Now that the album is finished we can’t wait to get out there and perform a bunch of new bangers along with some of our classics!” explains MC Eso.

Those eager to get their hands on tickets should sign up for the exclusive Frontier Members pre-sale which will run from Wed 26 April to Thu 27 April with tickets on sale to the general public from Fri 28 April. Check frontiertouring.com/blissneso for more information.

Bliss n Eso’s latest single, ‘Moments (feat. Gavin James)’ which made it to #1 on the NZ Viral Spotify chart, comes as the follow up to ‘Dopamine (feat. Thief)’ and ‘Friend Like You (feat. Lee Fields)’ and is a further taste for what’s to come from the trio on the forthcoming album. Off The Grid is available for pre-order now from blissneso.com.

“ 'Moments’ is a track that reflects on those precious moments we all had growing up before life got complicated. Your first kiss, the house you lived in, the smells of your childhood neighbourhood, your first time in love. It’s about reminiscing and appreciating how those moments have shaped who we are today. Gavin’s voice really brought everything together on ‘Moments’. His heart-warming vocals helped to paint all our memories even more vividly,” explains MC Bliss.

It’s officially Bliss n Eso season!

‘Friday night’s gig was hot, sweaty and frenetic; a real showcase of Aussie hip hop’s artistic growth over the past decade…Great show lads.’ - Adelaide Advertiser

‘The crowd demanded an encore. They stamped, they flung their fists in the air, chanting together as one.’ – The Music

Howard Davis: Never Too Old To Rock & Roll - Jethro Tull

As Greil Marcus recently observed in an NYRB review of Robbie Robertson's autobiographical Testimony, in rock and roll there is always an origin story. In the case of Jethro Tull founder Ian Anderson, he claims to have been influenced by his father's big band and jazz record collections and the emergence of rock music in the 1950s, but became disenchanted with the "show biz" style of early US stars like Elvis Presley...

Howard Davis Review: The Contemporary Relevance Of Denial

Denial has all the hallmarks of a riveting courtroom drama. Based on a 1996 British libel case that author David Irving brought against Lipstadt, the movie has been criticized as flat and stagey, but it nonetheless conveys a visceral clarity of vision and sense of overwhelming urgency. More>>
