Gig Information

The Adults live in June/July with She's So Rad

Jon Toogood’s acclaimed act The Adults are hitting the road again this winter, with a brand new lineup featuring axe-legend Aaron Tokona of Cairo Knife Fight. Tokona steps into Shayne Carter’s guitarist role, and will bring a new dimension to The Adults’ sound.

“The last time I played with Aaron was in an AC/DC covers band for a friend’s birthday,” says Toogood. “I thought I was an OK guitar player. He made me feel like a guitar player.”

The gigs follow a well-received stint on the Winery Tour this summer, and are the band’s only headline gigs for 2013.

The Adults revolve around Shihad singer Toogood, supported on record by a large and varied cast of prominent New Zealand musicians including Ladi6, the Nielson brothers and Anika Moa. They released their debut album in 2011, and have solidified around a touring lineup of Toogood, Dimmer’s Shayne Carter, ex-Fur Patrol singer Julia Deans and orchestral percussionist Steve Bremner. With Carter busy finishing up a solo album, the guitarist slot was open, and Tokona was the perfect replacement.

The tour represents one of the last opportunities to catch the band playing the self-titled debut before they head into the studio to record a follow up later this year. The band are playing five shows around the country, starting in Masterton on June 27th and finishing at Wellington’s San Francisco Bathhouse on July 6th.

To celebrate the tour announcement, The Adults would like to offer you a free download of a previously unreleased Adults track “Never Be Mine” featuring Hollie Smith, Pip Brown, Liam Finn. Download is available now from

She's So Rad will be joining The Adults on all of their upcoming tour dates starting at the end of the month.
