UK four-piece Rudimental will return to New Zealand this May, joined on tour by fellow UK powerhouse Jess Glynne, where they'll play their biggest headline show to date. New Zealand duo Sachi have just been confirmed to open the proceedings at Auckland's Vector Arena.
Sachi have been making waves here and abroad since the release of their breakthrough single 'No More'. The track is an impressive debut that has clocked up plays on BBC Radio 1Xtra with Diplo and Friends, Apple Music's Beats1 and NZ's #1 dance station George FM.
Rudimental, The UK four-piece have gone from strength to strength with the release of 2015’s We The Generation (out now via Warner Music Australia), featuring favourites like ‘Bloodstream’, ‘Never Let You Go’, Platinum-selling single ‘Lay It All On Me’ (ft. Ed Sheeran) and the new single ‘Rumour Mill’ (ft. Anne-Marie & Will Heard).
Rudimental celebrated the album’s release with a near sell-out global tour that included a string of sold out shows, explosive performances at Glastonbury, Governors Ball Music Festival, Bonnaroo and T in the Park, plus a coveted support slot on Ed Sheeran’s Australian and New Zealand stadium tour that saw them play to more than 250,000 fans this summer:
Following suit, Glynne’s debut album I Cry When I Laugh (out now via Warner Music) debuted at the top of the UK charts. The album touches on love and loss with an injection of optimism, reflected in platinum selling tracks like ‘Hold My Hand’, ‘Real Love’, ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’, the gold certified ‘Not Letting Go’ (with Tinie Tempah) and current smash ‘Take Me Home’. For the first time on this tour, Australians and New Zealanders will be able to see Glynne’s powerhouse vocals and innate songwriting talents come alive on stage.
