The National have confirmed today that ultra-cool folk singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers will be joining them for their 2020 Auckland show dates: ASB Theatre - Aotea Centre, Auckland: Friday, 3 April and Saturday, 4 April.

The Los Angeles based Bridgers released her debut album Stranger In The Alps in 2017 to international acclaim "Phoebe Bridgers demonstrates that it's possible to sing languid, pretty songs while maintaining an air of nervy darkness." - NPR, Top 10 Albums of 2017.

Over the last year, Bridgers has continued with a prolific release schedule; teaming up with Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus to release an EP as the indie rock supergroup boygenius. "Bridgers, an intimate voice and shy guitar with a folkier bedroom softness; Baker, enormous emo minor tones and a voice that could blow down a building; Dacus, vocals that are clear and confrontational and a guitar shrouded in fuzz. When performed together, it yields an effective kind of magic." - Pitchfork

Earlier this year she joined forces with Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes) for a full-length album under the guise Better Oblivion Community Centre. And, most recently The National’s Matt Berninger and Phoebe Bridgers contributed a new collaborative track titled ‘Walking On A String’ to the Zach Galifianakis Between Two Ferns: The Movie.

THE NATIONAL will play two shows at Auckland’s ASB Theatre, Aotea Square, a world-class all-seated venue on Friday the 3rd and Saturday the 4th of April 2020. Tickets on sale now via TICKETMASTER
