JAMES BLUNT

The Afterlove Tour

Tuesday 6 March 2018

British singer-songwriter James Blunt is heading to Auckland in March, with his 'The Afterlove Tour'.

Currently on tour throughout North America with good friend Ed Sheeran, Blunt is looking forward to embarking on his own world tour and returning to New Zealand to play for his loyal Kiwi fans: “Down Under has always been the most fun part of every world tour I’ve ever done, and the fans at the shows have always given me the warmest of welcomes. I can’t wait to get back.”

Blunt first captured the world’s attention in 2005 with his multi-platinum debut Back To Bedlam, featuring its history-making number one classic single ‘You’re Beautiful’. The British tunesmith has since become one of the most popular singer-songwriters of the modern era, with more than 20 million albums and 12 million singles sold worldwide. 

Blunt worked with a wide range of talent when writing and recording the album, including Ed SheeranRyan Tedder and Stephan Moccio (Miley Cyrus, The Weeknd). The album cemented his relationship with long-term fans as well as attracting a new, younger audience with tracks such as ‘Bartender’. He also collaborated with DJ Robin Schulz, scoring him a smash hit with banger ‘OK’.

Since his first visit to New Zealand in 2006, James Blunt has kept audiences spellbound with his heartfelt poignancy fused with touches of his classic, self-deprecating sense of humour. See him performing songs from his latest album plus his incredible catalogue of hits including ‘Bartender’‘You’re Beautiful’‘Goodbye My Lover’‘Carry You Home’‘No Bravery’‘1973’‘Wisemen’‘Stay The Night’ and ‘Bonfire Heart’.
