Calum Scott Announces Special Guest Alae For Debut NZ Show


UK crooner Calum Scott, the man behind one of the world’s most recognisable and loved renditions of Robyn’s Dancing On My Own, will play his first ever Australian and New Zealand shows later this month. Anticipation for this tour is high, with Scott’s Sydney and Melbourne shows already completely sold out.

Adding to an already unmissable tour, Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce that Scott will be joined on stage by Alae for his debut Auckland performance.

Kiwi up-and-comers Alae will release their debut album Henry Street in just a few short weeks, hitting shelves on 26 October. It features tracks like ‘All Gived Up’, ‘Too Strung Up’and ‘Stone Cold’, which have helped the band break all sorts of NZ streaming records for local independent artists. Regular touring around Australia and New Zealand, support slots with the likes of John Butler Trio and Nomad and sets at festivals like BIGSOUND and Rhythm & Vines have put Alae well and truly on the map as ones to watch.

Calum Scott’s heartwarming appearance on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 shot him to instant global stardom, and when he officially released his audition song ‘Dancing On My Own’ as the lead single from his debut album Only Human, it took the world by storm. The track quickly accumulated more than 6.5 million worldwide sales, reached Platinum status in New Zealand and saw the former recruitment officer from Hull nominated for the Brit Award for British Single Of The Year.

Scott’s elegantly sculpted pop centres on his soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics, exemplified in gently uplifting single ‘You Are The Reason’, aching piano ballad ‘Hotel Room’ and hit single ‘Rhythm Inside’.

2018 has certainly been a significant year for the 29 year old as he embarked on his first headline tour across the UK and Europe in May. This month, it’s our turn.

‘[‘No Matter What’] left concert goers captivated as Scott’s voice radiated throughout a silent crowd. Upon finishing the song, Scott couldn’t hold his emotions back and walked to the back of the stage to dry his eyes as he received one of the biggest ovations of the night.’ – The Courier Online

Don’t miss your chance to see Calum Scott play his very first New Zealand headline show, with a little help from Alae!

Gustav Mahler’s Seventh Symphony may be one of the least well-known of its ilk, but Edo de Waart and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra made a compelling case for a reassessment. They showed us a work of immense variety, surprising contrast and delicate shades of light and dark. More>>
