Live Australian dance sensation RÜFÜS return to New Zealand for an one off show in support of their brand new album Bloom.
Their Bloom World Tour takes them to some of the worlds biggest stages at Coachella and Red Rocks amphitheatre, before tackling home soil (where Bloom has just knannocked Adele off the #1 spot on the Aria charts) and finishing up this leg of their worldwide Bloom tour at our own iconic Powerstation.
2016 is shaping up to be RÜFÜS' biggest year yet; with Bloom's two lead singles landing in triple j's Hottest 100 countdown (You Were Right #12 and Like An Animal #28), securing a spot on the coveted Coachella line up for April, announcing a UK/EU tour for March and already selling out the London show (with a second show announced), as well as last week dropping an official video clip for new single, Say A Prayer For Me.
The boys from RÜFÜS are the latest Australian dance stars to crack it on the world stage, their live show is one of a kind and not to be missed.
After the break out success of their debut album Atlas, they crossed the globe several times over and bunkered down in Berlin to write and record Bloom. From the first chord to the last note it's an immersive journey. "Writing the record was a very introverted and personal process for us, so putting it out to the world after so much time alone feels like a feat in itself, and to see this reaction is overwhelming," drummer James Hunt says of Bloom. "It's a feeling that is hard to beat. It's a nice thing to see such a positive response to something that you've poured your heart and soul into."
Their live interpretation of the album is sure to be a highlight of 2016 for fans. "When we approach the live show I think a really exciting thing for us is to re-imagine the songs and try to bring a new dimension and new journey to our music. A big part of what we do whether it be writing a record or performing it live, is that sense of progression and that sense of tension and release," drummer James Hunt explains. "We've been absorbing so much live music lately so there are a million little things we want to try."
