Rudimental returning this May for Auckland show

UK four-piece Rudimental will return to New Zealand this May, joined on tour by fellow UK powerhouse Jess Glynne.

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 Australian headline 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:
As well as tracks from We The Generation, audiences can look forward to hits from Rudimental’s impressive back catalogue including breakthrough single ‘Feel The Love’  (ft. John Newman), 2013 BRIT Single of the Year ‘Waiting All Night’ (ft. Ella Eyre) and ‘Not Giving In’ (ft. John Newman & Alex Clare) to name just a few.
Joining Rudimental will be fellow Brit Jess Glynne. After making her introduction to the global stage with featured vocals on Clean Bandit’s 4x platinum ‘Rather Be’, 2015 saw Glynne become the second British female solo artist in history to have five number-one singles in the UK charts.
Following suit, Glynne’s debut album I Cry When I Laugh (out now via Warner Music Australia) debuted at the top of the UK charts and reached the top ten here in Australia. 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’.

Rounding out the line-up for Rudimental’s Australian shows will be Sydney’s own Thandi Phoenix. A refreshing soulful sensation, Phoenix has cultivated a sound that is equal parts raw and enchanting and has already impressed audiences at Bluesfest, Soulfest and Splendour In The Grass. Current single ‘Come Around’ is the first taste of exciting things to come, setting the tone for her highly anticipated debut EP – lucky audiences on Rudiental’s Australian tour will be amongst the first to hear slices from the forthcoming release.
