Calexico Announce 'Feast Of Wire' 20th Anniversary New Zealand Tour

Calexico Announce 'Feast Of Wire' 20th Anniversary New Zealand Tour

Chris Cudby / Thursday 26th October, 2023 8:00AM

Sounding just as time / space-defying today as when first launched into the universe two decades ago, Calexico are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their fourth studio album Feast of Wire with headline dates in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch this coming February. Expanded from an already generous 16 tracks (plus one hidden bonus tune) to a treasure trove of musical riches on this year's 27 track Feast of Wire [20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition], the long player has been hailed as breakthrough work by the fabled, musically visionary Tucson, Arizona-based project helmed by Joey Burns and John Convertino.

Hailed by the clout sheriffs at Pitchfork on first release as calling "on a stunning, finely kept arsenal of genres, textures and images to transport you to the Southwest's forgotten places", Calexico will treat Aotearoa devotees to "the album played in its entirety, plus of course a generous handful of fan favourites to finish" for their first local headline shows in five wild years. Do your ears a favour and go catch these very summer special events — brought to you by Banished Music and Strange News Touring...

Press release:

Having toured tirelessly across Europe and America throughout 2023 in support of the 20th anniversary of their seminal record Feast Of Wire, the band have saved the best ‘til last and are headed our way again at long last. To celebrate this double decade milestone, these shows will feature the album played in its entirety, plus of course a generous handful of fan favourites to finish.

These three shows, happening this February at Wellington’s beautiful Opera House, Christchurch’s favourite venue Loons, and Auckland’s finest, The Powerstation, are set to be momentous occasions, celebrating an album that has a tight and enduring grip on so many of our music-loving hearts.
