LIVE NATION & LOW STRUNG
LIL NZ TOUR
BACKED BY ONES TO WATCH & VODAFONE
Live Nation, Low Strung and WME are proud to present RIIKI’s debut ‘Lil NZ’ tour, visiting Auckland and Wellington this May and backed by Ones to Watch and Vodafone.
Delivering a refreshing blend of elegance meets edge, Wellington-based Raquel Abolins-Reid is indie-pop act RIIKI. Known for her melodic singles and vibrant persona on the festival circuit, it’s now time for RIIKI to deliver her first headline shows.
Tickets go on sale 12pm, this Friday April 9
Raised in New Zealand’s creative capital city and aged just 21, RIIKI arrived to the party in 2019 with first singles ‘One Day’ and ZM-playlisted ‘High Heights’, co-produced by Simon Gooding (known for working with global artists such as P!nk, Dua Lipa and Migos). In 2020 RIIKI followed up with singles ‘Share Your Luv’ and ‘Good Times’, the latter of which landed her first #1 on the Hot NZ Singles Chart.
Not deterred by launching her touring career while the world faces a global pandemic, RIIKI says, “I know what I’m working on right now will really mean something to others and I can’t wait for people to feel what I feel”.
RIIKI was the first local artist featured on music discovery blog Ones to Watch, after performing at a live showcase in Auckland last October. As part of the platform’s efforts to boost the careers of promising young artists, Ones to Watch and Vodafone are proud to back RIIKI’s debut headlinetour.
