Sharon Van Etten Returning To New Zealand In December

Sharon Van Etten Returning To New Zealand In December

Chris Cudby / Thursday 14th July, 2022 7:31AM

NYC songwriting icon and famously one of John Campbell's favourite musicians, Sharon Van Etten has announced her imminent return to Aotearoa. She'll be performing headline dates at Auckland's opulent Civic Theatre and Wellington's Opera House with full band in December 2022, hot on the heels of the launch of shadowy new album We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong.

As testament to how beloved she is by her peers, 2021's epic TEN collection featured Courtney Barnett, Idles, Shamir and Fiona Apple covering tunes from Van Etten's 2010 album Epic, while the artist's recent output includes collaborations with Josh Homme, Angel Olsen, and a standout contribution to the soundtrack to Pepe The Frog documentary Feels Good Man. Van Etten's visits to our shores in 2015 and 2019 garnered rapturous reviews — needless to say attendance will be mandatory for the boundlessly talented actor / musician's forthcoming summer events. Grip the official details below...

Press release:

Solid Entertainment and Banished Music are thrilled to announce the return of Sharon Van Etten and her full band to New Zealand. The Darkness Fades tour arrives in support of her brilliant brand new sixth album, We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong. “Stunning” is the word most used to describe Sharon Van Etten’s concerts. She's one of the century's great songwriters, a truly exceptional lyricist, and as for that voice…

Last in Auckland in 2019, playing a sold-out Powerstation show in support of Remind Me Tomorrow, Sharon Van Etten was a musician at the peak of her powers. The album went on to become one of the year’s most universally praised Albums of the Year and cemented Van Etten as one of the most influential artists of her generation. Her accompanying concerts were breathtaking, her performances a visceral connection with her audiences.
