California native Remi Wolf announces debut Australian and New Zealand headline dates for January 2023

Also appearing at Beyond The Valley, Wildlands and Field Day this December and January.
Penny Drop and Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce California native Remi Wolf will bring her live show to Australia and New Zealand for the very first time in January 2023. Performing her debut Antipodean headline dates at Melbourne’s Forum on 5 January and Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on 6 January, the burgeoning funk-pop star will jump the pond to take in Auckland and Wellington on 10 and 11 January respectively.
Wolf also performs at Beyond The Valley, Wildlands & Field Day in December and January.
"AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND!!!!! I am soooo excited to finally meet you guys and bring in a new year with new friends”, said Remi. “I've been counting down the days until we get to hang.... LET'S DANCE AND HAVE THE BEST TIME EVER!"
With a reputation as a fierce live performer, Wolf has sold out rooms around the world and garnered praise from fans and critics alike.
“one big genre-slippy party”– NME
“wildly talented in all the traditional ways, but choosing to prioritise fun, humour and joy at all turns, Remi Wolf has everything in place to become a true legend in the making.” – DIY Mag
Her recent performance of ‘Liz’ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon shows off Wolf’s vocal prowess in full force.
Audiences ‘immediate response’ to her talent instilled in Wolf a sense of confidence that carried her through music school and into a post-grad stint gracing local Los Angeles venues.
“Before I really fell in love with writing, I loved performing,” says Remi. “That’s always been my home base, it lights something up in my soul that is never lit up at any other time in my life. It’s a very powerful thing — the most expressive I feel like I will ever get.”
Making waves with her 2019 track ‘Guy’, Wolf garnered attention from indie-pop darling Still Woozy and scored a spot opening on their tour. Three critically acclaimed EP’s followed – You’re A Dog, I’m Allergic To Dogs and We Love Dogs! — mostly created in makeshift studios with her co-producer Jared Soloman and limited gear. Apple would later recruit Wolf to soundtrack an iPhone commercial, and she’d receive major co-signs from the likes of Olivia Rodrigo, SZA, John Mayer, Dominic Fike and more.
With her debut album Juno (2021), Wolf dabbles in funk, pop, indie, punk, dance and everything in between. NME applauded the offering as “funk pop at its brightest and boldest” and Pitchfork describing it as “an effervescent, hook-filled record that flirts with weighty emotions… every ounce of sunshine is tempered by grit”.
The project marked the first time Wolf has had the resources to outsource the more technical elements of the production process, as well as access to high quality equipment; an adjustment for a self-proclaimed DIY artist.
Her euphoric live set is an experience to behold, the 26-year-old talking candidly about mental health, sobriety, social anxiety and more, but turning it into a celebration and exuding absolute star power. Don’t miss the opportunity to catch this dynamic performer when she lights up theatres across Australia and New Zealand in the New Year!
