Tom Walker Welcomes Abby Wolfe To His Debut NZ Show

Scottish singer-songwriter Tom Walker will be touching down on our shores for his first ever New Zealand headline show this August. Frontier Touring is excited to announce that he will be joined by special guest Abby Wolfe for his Auckland performance.

After the release of his new album What A Time To Be Alive (Sony), a BRIT Award win, and a sold-out UK run, Walker will perform at Auckland’s Powerstation on Tuesday 20 August.

‘Underlining his international prowess, Tom Walker's subtle, nuanced performance continually uncovers fresh angles within the songwriting.’ - Clash

Joining Walker in New Zealand will be Dunedin artist Abby Wolfe, a self-taught singer-songwriter who dropped her first single, ‘Breakdown’, in 2017. Quickly turning heads, she followed it up with ‘Win You Over’ and ‘Change My Mind’, the newest single from the up-and-coming New Zealander.

Tom Walker recently paid a visit to BBC Radio 2, where he performed a very special live song for the one and only Kylie Minogue, surprising her with a cover of her own song ‘Love At First Sight’. Surprised may be an understatement, though - Kylie was overjoyed at Tom’s version of the song. Watch Tom’s performance and Kylie trying (and failing) not to get overwhelmed here.

Walker took home Best Breakthrough Artist at the 2019 BRIT Awards, an award he dedicated to his gran, and was nominated for Best Single for global smash hit ‘Leave A Light On’. The single, produced by Mike Spencer (Years & Years), has reached Platinum status in the UK and is double Platinum in Australia, peaking at #7 on the UK Singles Chart and amassing more than 290 million streams worldwide. Featuring alongside ‘Leave A Light On’ on What A Time To Be Alive are recent singles ‘Angels’ and ‘Just You And I’ which has reached Platinum status in the UK and has accumulated over 100 million streams worldwide.

While ‘Leave A Light On’ established Walker as a global breakout artist, his debut record will undoubtedly further his growing reputation as one of the most exciting artists in today’s music scene. Don’t miss your chance to see him live!
