Brad Cox Touring New Zealand In October

Chris Cudby / Tuesday 25th July, 2023 12:00PM

Hailing from Jindabyne, New South Wales, country songwriting star Brad Cox is celebrating the rip-roaring success of his new album Acres by jumping the ditch for debut New Zealand headline shows — playing in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch this October. Recorded between Sydney, Nashville and Gympie (in Queensland), Cox's third studio record Acres topped his homeland's ARIA Country Charts when it first launched in May, a career highlight since taking away the Toyota Star Maker accolade at the 2018 Country Music Awards of Australia. Embracing such themes as DIY rural livin', romance on the rocks, getting on the sips while fishing, and wandering down memory lane with soaring voice and the biggest of hearts, Cox has attracted such a devoted following he now has his very own fan club, the Drinking Pioneers. Don't miss the Aussie sensation leading the singalongs at the following dates...

“The ‘Acres’ Album Tour was such a success and everyone was sad to see the end of it. So we have decided to take it to the regions, and for the first time, New Zealand.” — Brad Cox

Press release:

Australia's beloved artist and songwriter, Brad Cox, is thrilled to announce his upcoming regional Australia tour, including first-ever shows in New Zealand and Darwin. Following the success of his latest album, ACRES, Brad Cox is set to enthrall fans with this grand tour across regional Australia and New Zealand.

Brad Cox is catapulting from the soaring success of last months sold-out ‘Acres’ metro tour, directly into the heart of regional Australia. Leaving an indelible mark on renowned stages across the nation, Brad and his band transformed iconic venues into arenas of unity and musical camaraderie. The band held sway over packed houses at illustrious venues such as The Tivoli, Anitas Theatre, and Northcote Theatre, with the crowd singing along word for word, arm in arm, marking a resounding testament to Brads powerful connection with his fans.

Celebrated for his authenticity, genuine spirit, and down-to-earth persona, Brad Cox has made a substantial impact with his recent 17-track tour-de-force, ACRES. The album scaled the heights of success, securing #1 on the ARIA Country Charts and #7 on the ARIA Album Chart, illuminating a high watermark in Coxs career. ACRES stands as a resounding showcase of an artist who can veer thematically from an earthy brand of country pop, to heartfelt piano-led ballads, to anthemic party songs.

One of the standout tracks from the album, Now She Ain’t, is currently the most played track on Triple M Country, stamping its mark on the country music landscape. Moreover, the single Last Time Last has recently earned additions to HIT, NOVA, and ARN Regional Network, amplifying the mainstream buzz surrounding ‘Acres’.

Brad Coxs music has reached audiences far and wide, amassing over 17.5 million streams in the last 12 months alone and is a clear testament to his vast appeal and popularity, setting the stage for an exceptional regional Australia tour.

Embedded within Brads success is his fan club, the Drinking Pioneers. This devoted community, united by their mutual love for Brads music, stands as a testament to the camaraderie that his work inspires. This tour is not just about relishing Brad and the boys dynamic performances, its also about becoming part of a wider community, a family that celebrates life, land, and the power of music.
