Marlon Williams: Second Christchurch Show Added

Marlon Williams: Second Christchurch Show Added

Adding to a string of sold out New Zealand shows this May, Heartstop Music and Eccles Entertainment have now added a second show at Christchurch’s Foundry on Monday 21st May. Tickets for this new Christchurch show are on sale at midday today from Ticketmaster!

Auckland’s first Town Hall show is now completely sold out, however lucky fans can still purchase tickets to the second fully seated Auckland Town Hall show. Do not delay as these tickets are selling fast.

This is by far Marlon William’s largest headline tour of New Zealand in venues of this size. Now a whopping 7 back to back shows across the country playing all new material for kiwi fans.

Marlon is currently on a three month international tour with his band where they have sold out dates in Los Angeles, Vancouver, Portland, Boston, London, Amsterdam, Berlin Paris and Melbourne and sold more than 25,000 tickets. He was recently highlighted by the New York Times as being one of the best acts at this years SXSW festival in Austin, Texas;

“His voice was a long-breathed tenor shading smoothly into falsetto; his pants showed a lot of ankle. Brokenhearted and a little geeky, he was a fond throwback to Roy Orbison and Chris Isaak”.

Released in February, Marlon’s sophomore album Make Way For Love has been receiving high praise from both fans and critics alike.

“Make Way for Love showcases a brash openness as Williams willingly exposes himself without apology or self-consciousness” Pop Matters

“Throughout the album his near-impeccable vocals soar and wane with impunity - his childhood choir training gifting him mastery of pitch and harmony - and while the overall result is still a defiantly retro vibe, it's one that feels decidedly richer and more sonically realised”. TheMusic.com.au

“A beautiful, honest breakup album from an old soul, 5 stars” NZ Herald

With major international TV appearances still to be announced, this tour just keeps soaring to new heights but New Zealanders are keen to see their homegrown boy back on local soil this May. Limited tickets to new shows in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin are on sale now through Ticketmaster.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
