Julia Deans Announces New Dates For Solo South Island Tour

Julia Deans Announces New Dates For Solo South Island Tour

Chris Cudby / Thursday 16th July, 2020 12:35PM

Among many artists whose 2020 tour plans were frustratingly derailed by Covid-19, Julia Deans is thankfully now back on track with a South Island tour lined up for late August and early September. The ex-Fur Patrol songwriter and member of Jon Toogood's The Adults (with Shayne Carter) made a significant splash in 2018 with her long-awaited solo album We Light Fire, following through on 2011's critically acclaimed Modern Fables. Her latest record earned a Taite Prize shortlist nomination for the virtuosic and multi-talented artist, who also recently made her opera debut in the Hawkes Bay. With four intimate dates revealed so far, Deans reassured fans via social media, "this is a work in progress, so don't panic if your town isn't on here!" Take in the details here...

UPDATE: Julia Deans has revealed a co-headline date alongside Laughton Kora at Queenstown's Sherwood this September...

Press release:

Julia Deans is heading South this August and September for a series of intimate shows to make up for songs unsung and gatherings ungathered.

One of many artists whose plans were cancelled due to Covid-19, shes excited to be heading out to road-test new material for an upcoming album, alongside favourites from her critically acclaimed solo catalogue. With the 20th anniversary of Fur Patrols platinum-selling debut album Pet looming (yes it has been that long!), she will also be diving into the Fur Patrol song archives to play songs of youthful exuberance alongside her more grown-up recent work.

These are small, cosy venues and tickets are strictly limited, so don't miss out!
