Four-time Grammy nominee Feist will make her long-awaited New Zealand headlining debut, with one show only at Auckland’s Powerstation on Saturday November 25.
Touring in support of her fourth full-length album Pleasure which was released in April, the Canadian singer-songwriter returns to New Zealand after five years, last in Auckland as part of the 2012 Laneway Festival.
Beginning her career with an impressive record touring with Broken Social Scene and Peaches, Feist’s solo material has seen her become one of Canada’s most lauded artists, collecting no fewer than 11 Juno Awards, including two Artist of the Year nods, since her debut release Let It Die in 2004.
Returning with her first album in six years, Pleasure lends itself perfectly to a live setting, placing Feist firmly as an inventive and talented guitarist bolstered by raw vocal arrangements and imbued with an unruly spirit courtesy of her punk roots. An album that presents a study on self-awareness while daringly and joyfully playing with genre, expect an intimate and expressive evening from this remarkable live talent.
With her catalogue having sold over 3 million units worldwide and amassed more than 500 million streams, alongside appearances on Saturday Night Live, selling out the Hollywood Bowl, and boasting the second-most-watched video in Sesame Street history, Feist is an artist not to be missed.
