“We can’t wait to finally return after three long years to Australia and are excited for our first headline show in New Zealand ever for us.  We’ll see you out there!” - Wesley Schultz.


After forming as a duo comprising vocalist/guitarist Wesley Schultz and percussionist/pianist Jeremiah Fraites in 2005, The Lumineers first found their way onto the global music scene in 2012, with their Platinum-selling self-titled debut album boasting the massive Ho Hey, which would top charts around the world and peaked at #2 in the NZ charts. This tour will mark the first time The Lumineers will return to New Zealand since the follow-up their debut in 2016 with Cleopatra, their third record, the aptly-titled III.


Having been performing on some of the world’s greatest stages for the last decade, The Lumineers returned in early 2022 with their fourth full-length album, Brightside, which would top the charts in their native US. Amassing over 5.5 billion global streams for their celebrated discography and selling over 5 million albums, the duo are now set to bring their eclectic and acclaimed folk rock sounds back to Australasian shores once again.
