Gig Information

Luke Thompson is finally hitting the road and bringing the magic of gathering for a performance to Wellington, for an evening at Two Todman.

Taking in eleven dates across Aotearoa, this will be fans' first chance to hear ‘The Trials and Tribulations of Adam and His Seed’ played live in what promises to be a warm, intimate and engaging night of music and unsung stories. With local supports to be announced soon…

“New Zealand. I'm really really excited to finally be doing this, I spent so long making this album and now have spent so long waiting to take it on the road. I hope you can come out this winter and we can see what happens as we gather around the modern day fire and stare at the flames together.”

About The Album
Luke Thompson didn’t mean to take five years to finish ‘The Trials and Tribulations of Adam and His Seed’, the follow-up to 2016’s Tui-nominated ‘Hosts’. The concept for the album had been percolating for a while, an unformed sense; a “spirit, a hunch, a colour”. Something archaic and prophetic. A wide-lens look at mankind and his struggle to exist. A return to folk music at its most elemental definition; songs as cultural stories, spanning generations like family heirlooms.

Thompson’s songs of “death and love and life, hate and cynicism, hope and peace, power and pain, warmth and shelter” are asking questions that may never properly be answered. Who are we? Why are we here? The stuff of the human condition that can’t be tied up tidily with a bow. 

In ‘The Trials and Tribulations of Adam and His Seed’, Thompson turns his attention to everything from biblical themes to politics and privilege and the bittersweet nostalgia of fairy tales in a world of modern anxiety. It may have taken five years to carve out the work within, but Thompson’s expansive, philosophical album has been set free right on time.
