Fresh from touring the world, one of New Zealand’s hottest acts, Drax Project, are hitting the road this summer for three shows. And for good measure, they’re taking fellow Kiwi hitmaker, Kings, along for the ride.
Presented by Eccles Entertainment and ZM, Drax Project and Kings will play Coroglen Tavern near Whitianga on December 27; Butlers Reef in New Plymouth on January 3 and Waihi Beach Hotel in Waihi on January 5.
Tickets are on sale at 8.00am on Friday November 2 from www.ticketmaster.co.nz and the venues.
Today’s announcement, wraps up an incredible year for Drax Project in which their hits such as ‘Woke Up Late’ and ‘Toto’ - from their EP NOON - dominated the airwaves and saw the band selling out two shows at Auckland’s Powerstation in a matter of hours. The Wellington band also drew critical acclaim for their support slots at Ed Sheeran’s record breaking NZ Tour and they travelled throughout Europe opening for global sensation Camila Cabello.
Their success has earned Drax Project four nominations at this year’s VNZMA’s, well and truly cementing their reputation as one of the most exciting bands on the Kiwi scene right now.
They’re joined on their summer tour by another big name in Kiwi music, the mighty Kings.
The Auckland-based producer, rapper, singer and songwriter has topped the charts, amassed millions of streams on Spotify and YouTube; smashed records and won countless awards since emerging on the scene in 2016 with his debut single ‘Don’t Worry ‘Bout It’, from his debut self-titled EP. He followed this with his full-length debut album, CHAPTER ONE and then his second album, TWO.
In late 2018, Kings released the single ‘6 Figures’ signalling new material on the way from his third album, LOVE & EGO, and secured a nomination for ‘best hip-hop artist of the year’ at the VNZMAs.
The Drax Project summer shows take place over one of the busiest periods in summer and follows the popular touring circuit through New Zealand’s beach-side towns, so it’s expected tickets will be snapped up. Don’t miss out!
