Passenger announces NZ & Australia tour

Following the release of single ‘Hell Or High Water’ and the announce of his tenth studio album RUNAWAY, Passenger has announced his 2018 Australia and New Zealand tour dates.

Along with this announcement, Passenger (aka Mike Rosenberg) has released an accompanying video for the album’s title track, ‘Runaway’. The album has been largely recorded in Australia and is due for release on Friday August 31st. 

The British singer-songwriter will play a show in Auckland, as well as all major cities in Australia to showcase his forthcoming album. Kicking off at Auckland’s Powerstation on Tuesday November 13th, Passenger will then hit Australian shores to play shows in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth.

RUNAWAY finds Passenger embracing the epic once again - the melodies are unforgettable, the choruses colossal. Even though it was recorded between the UK and Australia with co-producer, Chris Vallejo (INXS, Empire Of The Sun, Josh Pyke), the 10-track album was imagined as unfolding against a backdrop of American landscapes. And so, rather than the follow usual video process in studios or track-by-track, he and video director Jarrad Seng spent three weeks making videos across the US to capture the visual accompaniments to the aural landscapes.

Rosenberg says he is excited by the idea of hitting the road again – solo, this time after he brought in a full band for 2017’s ‘Young As The Morning’ tour. And he’s still busking, launching RUNAWAY in Europe with a series of busking appearances with more to come.

“Years ago, it was just me and a suitcase of CDs,” he smiles. “We used to get 50 people. Now it’s stage, a soundman, telling councils in advance. We might play to 3,000 people. But busking is something we’ve always done, a unique part of what Passenger is.”
