Mac DeMarco New Zealand Headline Show Announced

C.C. / Monday 29th July, 2019 8:00AM

Hold onto your dad caps – Mac DeMarco is returning to Aotearoa in early 2020 to play a very special Auckland Town Hall headline show, supported by our very own Fazerdaze. The Canadian-born indie hero will be here touring his reflective new studio album Here Comes The Cowboy, which dropped to global acclaim in May. The project of Amelia Murray, Fazerdaze has played at such international mega-festivals as Coachella and Latitude Festival following the release of her breakout 2017 debut album Morningside. The Tāmaki Makaurau show will be DeMarco's first New Zealand headline event in four years (he also swung by for Laneway 2018), as well as Fazerdaze's first local performance in over a year – mark these details in your calendar...

UTR is proud to present...

Press release

MAC DEMARCO has announced a return to New Zealand in January 2020 for HERE COMES MAC DEMARCO, a summer headline tour of Australia and one show in New Zealand.

Hitting Auckland’s prestigious Town Hall on Wednesday 8 January, this will be Mac’s first headline show in New Zealand in four years!

Mac has invited Fazerdaze to join him on this magical mystery journey. Fazerdaze, the incarnation of Amelia Murray, released her debut album Morningside in 2017 to critical acclaim. Since then Fazerdaze have travelled the globe playing Coachella and Latitude Festival amongst a string of headline shows in Asia, Europe and North America. Now back home and working on brand new music, this will be Fazerdaze first show in homeland New Zealand in over a year!

Mac DeMarco's fourth album HERE COMES THE COWBOY was described as his "masterpiece” (Q magazine) upon its release in May. Written, recorded and mixed at his Los Angeles studio, it was the debut release on the eponymous Mac’s Record Label, and released via Spunk Records / Universal Music New Zealand.

The Canadian-born artist has always taken a more contemplative approach to songwriting, and on HERE COMES THE COWBOY he's at his thoughtful and introspective best.

His New Zealand date is announced on the heels of an immense international touring schedule, including northern hemisphere summer festival sets at Bonnaroo, Festival de Beauregard, Montreaux Jazz Festival, Primavera Sound, Coachella, All Points East and Iceland Airwaves.

In June, Mac leant his curatorial skills to MAC DEMARCO WILL SEE YOU NOW, a day festival in Margate, United Kingdom that included Thurston Moore, Aldous Harding, Yellow Days and Amyl and the Sniffers.
