With a visual backdrop created by Weta Workshop and a host of NZ's best animators, these live shows will combine orchestral and electronic brilliance with stunning visuals and is not to be missed.

Following on from Dunedin, Sheehan will perform in Wellington, Nelson and Auckland. Full tour dates and info are below -

Sheehan will showcase the brand new album A Quiet Divide, as well as previous work from acclaimed albums Standing In Silence and Stories From Elsewhere. Sheehan’s live shows are a rare occasion, with this being the first New Zealand performances since 2013.
