The Dead South Announce Auckland Headline Show

The Dead South Announce Auckland Headline Show

Annabel Kean / Tuesday 21st June, 2022 11:58AM

Currently barrelling through Europe with banjo, cello, mandolin and guitar on hand, Saskatchewan bluegrass four-piece The Dead South have announced they're heading to our side of the planet in the new year. Known for a penchant for the grittier side of traditional folk, the award-winning group will be making their way to Aotearoa in January, playing a one-off Tāmaki Makaurau summer show at the end of a four date Australia stint. For their debut New Zealand performance, The Dead South will be taking over the Tuning Fork with original tracks from their warmly received 2019 album Sugar & Joy, plus their brand new two-parter EP covers series Easy Listening for Jerks, Parts I & II. For a guaranteed knee-slapping, finger-plucking good time, set your alarms to nab a ticket this Friday...

UPDATE 5/07/22: The Dead South have announced a second Auckland headline date at The Tuning Fork on 30th January, as their first show has sold out...

Press release:

THE DEAD SOUTH will bring their unique bluegrass sound to Australia and New Zealand for the first time with their One For The Road Tour in January 2023. The band will perform headline shows in Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane and Melbourne before headlining across the ditch to Auckland.

Tickets go on sale at 1pm, Friday June 24.

My Live Nation members can secure tickets during the pre-sale which commences at 12pm on Thursday June 23, and concludes at 12pm on Friday June 24. For complete tour and ticket information, visit:

Propelled by the momentum of a gold-certified single for ‘In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company’, two Canadian JUNO Award wins for Traditional Roots Album of the Year and sold out tours worldwide with performances at iconic live destinations including Glastonbury, Brixton Academy, and Red Rocks Amphitheater, the finger-picking four-piece offer a highly nonconformist, hugely entertaining take on the traditional string band sound.

The Dead South’s most recent releases are Easy Listening For Jerks, Parts 1 + 2, two companion EPs which explore traditional folk and modern rock anthems alike in The Dead South’s signature boundary-pushing acoustic approach. New videos from the EPs, ‘You Are My Sunshine’ and ‘People Are Strange’ have garnered nearly 10 million views.
