Event Details

Banished Music and Strange News Touring are ecstatic to present the band The Guardian referred to as “one of the very best in the US”, Blonde Redhead, returning to New Zealand for the first time since 2011.  


Set to dazzle Aotearoa’s audiences across three very special shows this June, the trio of Kazu Makino and twin brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace have been selling out shows the world over since the release of their tenth studio album Sit Down For Dinner 

Since forming in New York in 1993 after leaving their homelands of Japan and Italy respectively, the band have traversed post-punk, noise rock, and dabbled in some of the finest ethereal dream weaving we’ve heard. Now, some thirty years into their colourful career, Blonde Redhead are making what critics are calling their warmest and most accessible music to date. This is the sound of a tight-knit musical family having returned from a self-imposed exile, putting aside the troubles of the past and finding the joy of playing together again. 


The mere mention of the name Blonde Redhead is enough to send most indie music fans into a swooning spin, and with their last visit here being for Laneway Festival over a decade ago, it’s high time we got to bathe in their inimitable sound. It’s no understatement to say this is a bucket list band, one you simply have to see.
