Marlon Williams Announces Dates On The Tūrangawaewae Tour

Marlon Williams Announces Dates On The Tūrangawaewae Tour

In celebration of his three wins at this year’s VNZMA’s for Album of the Year, Best Solo Artist and Best Video, Marlon Williams has just added five new shows in addition to his performance with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra at Villa Maria Winery in Auckland.

Performing songs from his #1 NZ album Make Way For Love and more, Marlon will play alongside his band (Dave Khan, Ben Woolley, Gus Agars and Dan Luscombe) in Auckland, Upper Moutere’s Neudorf Vinyeard, Havelock North’s Black Barn Vineyards, Martinborough’s Luna Estate, Dunedin’s Regent Theatre and in Christchurch at the newly reopened Christchurch Town Hall.

For one very special show in Auckland only Marlon will play alongside the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra at Villa Maria Winery. Additionally, at all six summer shows he will be supported by Don McGlashan with band and Emily Fairlight.

Don McGlashan is one of New Zealand’s best known and highly regarded song writers. Having played in groups such as Blam Blam Blam, The Front Lawn, From Scratch, The Bellbirds, The Plague and the Mutton Birds, Don has long been a fixture in kiwi music royalty. Over his impressive career he’s penned APRA Silver Scroll winning songs ‘Anchor Me’, ‘Bathe In The River’ and other favourites like their rendition of ‘Nature’, ‘Dominion Road’ and ‘The Heater’ to name a few. Don continues to tour internationally however these will be his first shows of 2019.

Handpicked by Marlon himself and widely considered one of New Zealand’s most exciting songwriting talents, Emily Fairlight has been composing and performing here and internationally for the last decade. Her sound has been compared to the likes of PJ Harvey and Cat Power with her voice that ranges from intimate whispers to strong wails. Emily has a talent for delivering beautiful and honest lyrics peppered with heartfelt melodies. Her latest album Mother Of Gloom was released this year to critical acclaim.

2018 APRA Silver Scroll recipient for his song ‘Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore’, Marlon Williams is in the midst of possibly the most career making year of his life! An album tour which has taken him around the globe for the majority of this year playing festivals and selling out headline tours, an acting part in Bradley Cooper’s Hollywood film directorial debut A Star Is Born, FOUR nominations at this year’s Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards and now three wins, it’s time for this long-awaited homecoming.

Marlon has also just released this gorgeous new video for his song ‘Beautiful Dress’ from Make Way For Love. Marlon says of the song “Nothing is so heartbreaking as nothing. When I think about the people I love preparing a meal in their homes, doing the dishes, carrying out the bare minimum actions of survival, it makes me want to cry. This is an exploration of the mundane. It’s not even an exploration. It’s just someone hanging out. It’s nothing.”

The Tūrangawaewae Tour featuring Marlon Williams and band, Don McGlashan with band, and Emily Fairlight plus The APO in Auckland only kicks off next February! These shows are sure to mark the start of another huge year for Marlon Williams. Don’t miss your chance to see him at home in New Zealand this summer. These incredible shows will sell out!
