Groove Armada Announce New Zealand Tour

Groove Armada Announce New Zealand Tour

Chris Cudby / Thursday 28th July, 2022 8:00AM

Icons of UK electronic dance Groove Armada, the duo of Andy Cato and Tom Findlay, have announced four massive Aotearoa dates with full band happening this November, as part of their global 25 Years farewell tour. Returning to our shores for the first time since The Big Day Out festival reigned supreme over a decade ago, Groove Armada will be raising the roof at Christchurch's QEII Park, Napier's Church Road Winery, Wellington's TSB Arena and a headline performance at Spring City Music Festival in Auckland Domain.

Repping a storied career that includes three UK Top Ten albums — including 2001's Goodbye Country (Hello Nightclub) which charted number one in New Zealand — three Grammy nominations, a BRIT nomination and such body-moving, era-defining anthems as ‘Superstylin’, ‘Song 4 Mutya (Out of Control)’, ‘I See You Baby’ and ‘At The River', you'd have to be a right nutter to miss Groove Armada live before the pair sign off with style. Supports are yet to be announced, plus more lineup info for Spring City Music Festival will be revealed in the coming weeks, check out the official details brought to you by the team at Endeavour Live below....

Press release:

One of the globe's biggest electronic dance acts GROOVE ARMADA will be touring their full live band experience across New Zealand this Spring as part of their 25 Years farewell tour. The 4 date tour will feature performances at QEII PARK in CHRISTCHURCH on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 24 2022, CHURCH ROAD WINERY in NAPIER on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25 2022, and TSB ARENA, WELLINGTON on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 27 2022. The Auckland performance on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 26 2022 will see Groove Armada headlining the return of the SPRING CITY MUSIC FESTIVAL, taking place at the stunning AUCKLAND DOMAIN.

For over two decades GROOVE ARMADA has been established as one of the planet's best loved and biggest selling dance acts. Since debuting in 1997, they’ve proved that it’s possible to bravely explore a multitude of sounds while achieving critical and commercial success. It’s a trait that is apparent within a selection of their best loved songs. From the dancehall dub of ‘Superstylin’ to the crossover pop of ‘Song 4 Mutya (Out of Control)’ and from the dancefloor-igniting ‘I See You Baby’ to the woozy sunset vibes of ‘At The River’, Groove Armada have consistently and uncompromisingly followed their own vision.

What the duo - Tom Findlay and Andy Cato - have achieved must’ve seemed unthinkable when they first met at university back in the nineties: three UK Top 10 albums; three Grammy nominations; a BRIT nomination; and a succession of hit singles that are still being discovered by new fans to this day. Despite having formed a quarter-of-a-century before streaming exploded, they still command the attention of almost two million monthly listeners at Spotify. They’ve also collaborated with or remixed countless high profile artists, notably Madonna, Paul Simon, Fatboy Slim, Calvin Harris, Neneh Cherry and Bryan Ferry.

Fans of Groove Armada can expect to experience the live show with the full band at each of the 4 shows, with support acts to be announced. The full Spring City Music festival lineup to be released at a later date.
