After 12 years of incredible collaborative performances, Kiwi icons Fly My Pretties are hitting the road this summer, with a brand new album, playing in some of New Zealand’s most stunning outdoor venues.
Following a recent run of nine intimate sold-out shows to record the new album String Theory, Fly My Pretties will take to the road in January 2017 to perform the new album along with the classics. Marking the first nationwide tour for Fly My Pretties since 2013’s Homeland Tour, this run of shows will see a 14-strong cast take to the stage, with a number of special guests.
Due for release in November, String Theory explores the fabric of our existence through music, uncovering the cosmos and trying to unlock our place within it. This tour will bring the album, the sixth outing from Fly My Pretties, to life in the way the songs were meant to be heard: live and at full power.
Described as a “cosmic trip through the universe inside and outside us – led by some of Aotearoa’s finest musicians”by 13th Floor reviewer Stephen Allely, the all new Fly My Pretties show is set to enchant audiences across the country.
Visiting six centres throughout January, tickets for the String Theory tour will be available through Ticketek in Wellington and Ticketmaster for all other shows, priced at $72.00. All shows are all ages, and children under 12 years are welcome free of charge with a paying adult – with the exception of the show at Coroglen Tavern which is R18. General Sale starts on Monday 29 August at midday.
