Teenage Fanclub Announce New Zealand Show

Teenage Fanclub Announce New Zealand Show

Tuesday 21st August, 2018 8:30AM

Glasgow power-pop trailblazers Teenage Fanclub are returning to Aotearoa for a headline show at Auckland's Powerstation this February. Masters of effervescent guitar hooks and singalong choruses, Teenage Fanclub rose to international fame in the heady alt-guitar loving days of the early nineties, with infectiously catchy gems scattered through nearly a dozen studio albums including A Catholic Education, Bandwagonesque, Thirteen and Grand Prix. Along with their own songs the band released significant collaborative cuts with US rappers De La Soul and US indie figurehead Jad Fair (Half Japanese). The long-running band have never stopped performing and recording over a career spanning almost thirty years, and are celebrating this month's vinyl re-issue of five records originally released between 1991 to 2000 on Creation Records.

Press release:

Frontier Touring is delighted to welcome back Glasgow five-piece Teenage Fanclub, returning to New Zealand in February 2019. The iconic ‘What You Do To Me’ rockers will perform one headline date in Auckland, with tickets going on sale Monday 27 August.

Over the course of almost 30 years in which they released seminal albums such as A Catholic Education, Bandwagonesque, Thirteen, Grand Prix, Songs From Northern Britain, Howdy!, Man Made, Shadows & Here, Teenage Fanclub went from being scrappy indie underdogs, through band-most-likely-to, eventually arriving at the status they’ve held ever since: one of Britain’s most beloved cult bands.

Not liked, or admired, or respected: beloved.

Teenage Fanclub’s most recent studio album is their tenth effort, 12 tracks and a textbook representation of democracy in action: 2016’s Here.

August 2018 sees the band celebrating the vinyl re-issue of five longplayers originally released between 1991-2000 on Alan McGee’s Creation Records. Vinyl fans, head here to purchase new copies of Bandwagonesque, Thirteen, Grand Prix, Songs From Northern Britain and Howdy!, all re-mastered for the very first time by the group at the UK’s legendary Abbey Road Studios.

Formed in 1989, Teenage Fanclub are a rare thing: a group who have grown old with their audience, reflecting their changing lives and shifting concerns. When Teenage Fanclub’s crowd looked at the band in 1991, they saw people just like them: boozy, boisterous and rambunctious. When they look at the band now, they still see themselves in them: they’re like the old best friends you see a couple of times a year, and come away from each meeting with your affections revived.

Don’t delay in grabbing tickets to Teenage Fanclub, playing Auckland February 2019!
