California based Greg Johnson reunites with his Kiwi band in July for their first comprehensive New Zealand tour together in a decade.
The tour – originally scheduled for March but postponed until July due to Covid restrictions – includes multiples nights in Auckland and Christchurch, plus one-night stands in Wellington, Hamilton, Napier, Palmerston North, and Nelson.
Greg Johnson’s all-star band features fellow Los Angeles resident Ted Brown, drummer Wayne Bell, guitarist Ben King and bassist Mark Hughes.
With his recent Top 20 album TILT YOUR INTERIOR still fresh on Aotearoa turntables, demand is strong. Fans can look forward to hearing 30 years of fantastic hits like Isabelle, Don’t Wait Another Day, Liberty, Save Yourself, It’s Been So Long, Now the Sun is Out, Lemonade Stand, I Got Opinions, Swagger and many more.
Accolades for Johnson over the years include two Tui NZ Music Awards, eight top 20 albums and a coveted Silver Scroll song-writing award, for hit song Liberty.
Johnson says “I can’t wait to head home in July, this time with the whole band to perform a very dynamic show. Facebook concerts and remote recording have been a necessary evil, but it can’t replace the satisfaction of performing live in the wonderful venues across New Zealand. Bring it on!”
