Kiwi rock band Blindspott have made history as the first kiwi band to re-enter the Official New Zealand Music Charts at Number One with their iconic, debut multi-platinum self-titled album, first released in 2002.
This incredible achievement tops off a massive start to the year for the band who recently announced rescheduled dates for the remainder of their nationwide tour, playing this iconic album in full at venues across the country.
2020 has been a massive year for the band, taking out The Rock FM’s ‘Rock Wars’ (beating out Pink Floyd in the final) and have also announced they are heading into the studio to write new music, the first time in over 15 years. The band’s popularity continues to grow with their iconic hits, such as ‘Nil By Mouth’, ‘Room To Breathe’, ‘Phlex’ still blasted on rock radio to this day, with last year’s The Rock 1500 boasting no less than 9 songs from Blindspott.
“Massive thanks to all our fans and everyone who supports us, we’re stoked!." the band said. "We really appreciate it and can’t wait to get out on the road to perform the album for you in September!”
Damian Alexander (vocals), Marcus Powell (guitar, backing vocals), and Shelton Woolright (drums) are taking to the road once again and will be revisiting the album that touched so many kiwi's lives and instantly made it a classic! This massive tour spans from North to South, kicking off again in Taupo on August 28th and ending with a bang in Christchurch on October 10. Don’t miss this one-off opportunity to witness one of our greatest rock bands performing live, one of NZ’s greatest rock albums!
Tickets for all dates are on sale now from Eventfinda.co.nz with limited stocks of the iconic limited edition self titled vinyl album available for sale at each show.
