PRESS RELEASE:

Blind Tiger Touring is pleased to announce that the Dandy Warhols will play their first New Zealand dates in 16 years this September, with shows in Auckland and Christchurch.

The Dandy Warhols released their major-label album debut The Dandy Warhols Come Down in 1997, but rose to new levels of fame with their acclaimed album Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia, featuring the hit song Bohemian Like You, dubbed by The Independent as a ‘defining song of the last decade’.

The Alt-Rock outfit (consisting of Courtney Taylor-Taylor, Zia McCabe, Peter Holmström and Brent DeBoer) have an impressive track record, including opening for David Bowie on his 2003 'A Reality Tour’, releasing 10 Studio albums (most recently Distortland in 2016) and touring the World over. They are a staple band of their genre, with tracks like ‘Godless’, ‘We Used to Be Friends’, ‘Not if You Were the Last Junkie on Earth’ and ‘The Last High’ as adored and influential today as they were on release.

 Tickets on sale 26th June, see venues for further info.
