Alex Cameron Returning To New Zealand In March 2020

Alex Cameron Returning To New Zealand In March 2020

C.C. / Tuesday 10th December, 2019 12:13PM

Alex Cameron is returning to Aotearoa in March 2020, to dazzle local fans with a pair of headline events at Wellington's Meow and Auckland's Tuning Fork. The Australian crooner and style icon will be here touring his romantic, heart-on-his-sleeve third studio album Miami Memory, "the story of a couple balancing sex with contemporary family values," described by the pop-rocker as a "gift to my girlfriend" English-American actor Jemima Kirke (Girls). He'll be on stage with band including sax player, creative partner in crime and charismatic crowd favourite Roy Molloy for both events – if previous visits to our shores are anything to go by (check out Roy Irwin's classic review of Cameron's 2018 Auckland show here), March's musical outing will be a guaranteed can't miss affair. Scope out the details below...

Press release:

Frontier Touring and I OH YOU are delighted to announce the return of Alex Cameron, performing two headline shows in New Zealand – Wellington and Auckland – in March 2020. The tour comes in support of Cameron’s recently released acclaimed third album, Miami Memory (out now via Secretly Canadian).

On track to perform over 100 shows in 2019 with his band – including sax player and collaborator Roy Molloy – the Sydney-born singer and songwriter (now residing in the US) is one of music’s most exciting indie artists. His last tour to AU/NZ in February 2018 saw venue upgrades after tix flew out the door – fans are encouraged to move fast on these new shows. General public tickets will go on sale Friday 13 December via frontiertouring.com/alexcameron.

Diving headfirst into authenticity with Miami Memory (released in September 2019), Cameron’s latest listen is a love letter to his long-term partner and collaborator, artist and “Girls” actor Jemima Kirke. Bitingly funny, musically expansive and at times lustful, hilarious, vulnerable and tender, on his latest release Cameron delivers his most personal songs yet… all with the same genre-busting, brash pop narrative nous he’s infamous for. Steeped in modern day romance, tracks such as ‘Divorce’, ‘Far From Born Again’, ‘Miami Memory’ and ‘Stepdad’ see Alex Cameron at his wildly subversive and hand-on-heart best.

‘Who would have thought that satire on incels and men’s rights activists sung by a man with slicked-back hair, no eyebrows and bad sunglasses could be so sexy? … Seeing Alex Cameron live isn’t a once in a lifetime experience. It’s a pleasure to be sampled again and again, by any means necessary.’ – London In Stereo

‘From the time that Cameron hit the stage at the Phoenix the crowd instantly lost it, and for good reason … Make sure you catch this amazing entertainer live, his stage performance is always amazing’ – canadianbeats.ca

Cameron’s 2014 debut record Jumping The Shark and 2017’s Forced Witness saw him hailed as a (at times controversial) voice to watch. The Killers’ frontman Brandon Flowers took notice, enlisting him to co-write five tracks on the band’s fifth album, Wonderful Wonderful. Now, Cameron has dropped the laconic, hypermasculine role-playing of his first two solo releases for Miami Memory’s golden-hued, from-the-heart modern pop.

“When you listen to these songs, and you’re waiting for the twist, or the joke, or any kind of discomfort, I can assure you none of those things were there when I wrote them,” he says. “Miami Memory is the story of a couple balancing sex with contemporary family values… It’s my gift to my girlfriend, a symbol to hoist on the totem of love.”
