Rag'n'Bone Man Announces Debut NZ Tour April 2018


Rory Graham, better known as RAG’N’BONE MAN is the prodigiously talented, instantly recognizable, powerhouse voice behind the worldwide hit single ‘Human’.

2017’s biggest breakthrough artist and the BRIT’s Critics’ Choice Award winner, Rag’n’Bone Man has announced he will perform his first-ever New Zealand tour in April 2018.

Accompanied by a full band Rag’n’Bone Man will unleash his unmistakable voice at arena shows in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch leaving no doubt as to why he has been dubbed one of the world’s most exciting new talents.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 2pm Friday, November 3.

Spark customers will be able to access a special pre-sale commencing midday Tuesday, October 31

Graham’s debut album ‘Human’, featuring the hit singles - title track ‘Human’ and ‘Skin’ - was released in February 2017, garnering instant respect and praise for its emotive soulfulness. In the UK, ‘Human’ is the fastest-selling debut album by a solo male artist during the 2010’s, debuting at number one on the UK album charts. In New Zealand the album is certified Gold, peaking at number three on the RIANZ Album chart, plus racking up 4.5 million streams to date.

“Rory Graham’s debut album is at once modern and classic, fusing blues, hip-hop and vintage sounds with pop attitude” - NME

Growing up in East Sussex, Graham first burst onto the music scene at age 15 with a drum and base crew. At 19 he progressed more toward becoming a solo artist, fine-tuning his songwriting skills and colossal vocal prowess eventually attracting the attention of Columbia Records who in 2015 signed him on the strength of his EP ‘Wolves’ which then led to the release of his full-length debut album ‘Human’ earlier this year.

Graham is a born performer, when he sings he connects with people on a deeply personal level. During quieter songs, as his vast soulful growl fills the venue, audiences have literally been left crying. With an extraordinary balance of strength and gentleness, Graham’s phenomenal voice has a maturity of someone well beyond his tender years.

“Behind the mighty beard and even mightier voice, a sensitive soul lurks’ – Q

‘His ability to reach those high notes before shooting back down to a gritty earth with complete ease almost makes you shudder. You get the sense this voice could command an army with little difficulty’ - Express UK
