Blonde Redhead to Conclude New Zealand Tour in Lyttelton

Threaded together by Banished Music and Strange News Touring, American alternative rockers Blonde Redhead charge to New Zealand for the first time since 2011 on a three-stop multi-city tour. They will culminate their shows in New Zealand at Lyttelton’s The Loons on June 24, with T.G. Shand as the opening act. Get your tickets to Blonde Redhead’s show in Lyttelton from The Ticket Fairy.

Trio Blonde Redhead, composed of seasoned musicians Kazu Makino (vocals, keyboards), Simone Pace (drums), and Amedeo Pace (guitars), will spend almost the entirety of June 2024 in the land down under presenting a selection of their repertoire along with songs from their most recent album, ‘Sit Down for Dinner.’ The group, which first banded together back in 1993, will play five shows in Australia before headlining venues in Auckland, Wellington and Lyttelton.

‘Sit Down For Dinner’ was released in September 2023 and features singles ‘Snowman,’ ‘Melody Experiment’ and title tracks ‘Sit Down For Dinner’ (Part 1 and Part 2). It is their first album since dropping ‘Barragan’ almost a decade ago. Singer Kazu Makino explained the circumstances surrounding the development of the record on Live on KEXP, noting that it was a culmination of almost getting stuck in Italy, lockdown, COVID, and moving houses, even going so far as to call it a “Miracle” that they lined up in the studio once again together.

June 24 sees Blonde Redhead dish out their brand of alternative rock, shoegaze, dream-pop, and indie-rock at Lyttelton’s live music and performance hub, The Loons, which is also their final stop on tour in New Zealand.

No concert is complete without a reliable supporting act on opening duties and the Kiwi promoters have roped in Melbourne-born and Christchurch-based Annemarie Duff, best known as T.G. Stand, for this gig. T.G. Stand brags a ledger of catchy guitar riffs and gentle vocals against a backdrop of dream-pop, shoegaze, and indie-rock music. The artist darts to The Loons on the heels of her latest single, ‘The Cheese.’
