Cole's solo concerts coincide with the local release of his acclaimed new album Standards - a stunning record which has generated Cole's inevitable renaissance across Europe. He heads Downunder after a series of sold out shows, and star billing on premiere UK music show ‘Later With Jools Holland’ – see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcDUDm4nNm8

New Zealand's appreciation for Cole reaches back 30 years to early Lloyd Cole and the Commotions albums like Rattlesnakes and Easy Pieces, continuing right up to 2011's Broken Record (No 11 in the NZ album chart).

Cole's songbook houses gems like Lost Weekend, Perfect Skin, Rattlesnakes, Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken, Jennifer She Said, Live Lovers Do, Period Piece and Myrtle and Rose - material which has formed an enduring connection with fans worldwide.

Los Angeles-based Kiwi Greg Johnson will play a rare solo set, celebrating the Autumn release of Some Other Place, Some Other Time - The Greg Johnson Anthology on Universal Records.

Johnson's songs have become part of our own cultural landscape, thanks to likes of Isabelle, Liberty (APRA Silver Scroll winner), Don’t Wait Another Day, Save Yourself, It's Been So Long, Now The Sun is Out, and Hold Tight – helping him to two NZ Music Awards and eight top 20 albums.
