Nothing But Thieves Auckland Headline Show Announced

Nothing But Thieves Auckland Headline Show Announced

Chris Cudby / Monday 5th February, 2024 12:15PM

UK alt-rock collective Nothing But Thieves achieved notable New Zealand chart success with their breakout 2023 album Dead Club City (the group's first number one in their homeland), and now they're all set to electrify fans with their debut local performance. Unveiling pumping new single 'Oh No :: He Said What?' last week, the productive Essex five-piece have announced a headline event at Auckland's The Powerstation this coming autumn — celebrating a record which has given us such epic-scale anthems as 'Welcome to the DCC', 'Overcome' and 'Tomorrow Is Closed'. As it will be the group's first local appearance, crossed fingers they'll also dip into their hit-packed songbook encompassing Moral Panic (2020), Broken Machine (2017), and 2015's self-titled album on 9th May...

UPDATE: Nothing But Thieves have announced a second headline event at The Powerstation due to hot demand...

Press release:

UK alt-rockers Nothing But Thieves have announced they are heading down under and playing their first-ever New Zealand show in Auckland on Thursday, May 9.

And while it's been less than a year since beloved UK alt-rockers Nothing But Thieves were last in Australia for an entirely sold out run, the band are returning this April and May to finish what they started last year with DEAD CLUB CITY.

Presented by XIII Touring, Untitled Group, Wasserman Music and War Road Management, for the second Australian leg of their Dead Club City World tour in 2024, Nothing But Thieves will be exploding onto stages in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide before heading to Auckland; but this time they'll also be armed with the entire DEAD CLUB CITY album out in the world, as well as some brand new music courtesy of the recently announced DEAD CLUB CITY DELUXE edition.

An album that dazzles in disco hues, experimental funk, soaring synths, scorching riffs and mesmerising melodics, DEAD CLUB CITY is undoubtedly the most intoxicating and innovative addition to the Nothing But Thieves universe to date. But beneath the pop glimmers and blistering soundscapes percolating throughout DEAD CLUB CITY, a socially conscious core also lies in wait, seamlessly balancing real-world meaning alongside its fantastical overarching concept.

Securing Nothing But Thieves #25 album on debut in New Zealand, plus their second Top 10 ARIA Album and first #1 UK Album, produced by guitarist Dom Craik along with co-producer Jonathan Gilmore, DEAD CLUB CITY follows on from the band's LP MORAL PANIC, and subsequent EP MORAL PANIC II. And while plans to tour MORAL PANIC at the time of its release were curtailed by the global you-know-what, Nothing But Thieves' 2023 visit to Australia allowed the band and fans to celebrate moments of MORAL PANIC and MORAL PANIC II in live setting, as well fresh DEAD CLUB CITY cuts, including ‘Welcome to the DCC’ and ‘City Haunts’.

Now with a heightened repertoire to choose from in 2024, including the entirety of DEAD CLUB CITY and the brand new bonus single ‘Oh No :: He Said What?’, New Zealand and Australia are set to experience the astonishing live prowess of Nothing But Thieves, which has previously seen the group headline arenas, tour alongside the likes of The Rolling Stones and Muse, and collectively cause Australian crowds to fall head-over-heels time and time again with their eclectic and explosive creations. This time, it is New Zealand’s turn!

Come and experience the technicolour cosmos of DEAD CLUB CITY and Nothing But Thieves as you've never seen them before this April and May - you absolutely won't want to miss a moment.
