Halsey has finally announced that she’ll be bringing her ‘hopeless fountain kingdom’ world tour to New Zealand next April (for a show at Spark Arena on April 19th), and to celebrate this very important fact, we’ve compiled a list of reasons that you should be heading along to her tour.
But first, here’s the full tour info:
“Kiwi’s love Halsey. Whether it’s that unmistakable voice, her take-no- prisoners attitude, or her irreverent approach to social media, there’s something about the way this 23-year- old New Jersey native operates that we just can’t get enough of. Luckily for us, the feeling is mutual, as Halsey is returning to New Zealand for her debut headline show in support of her latest Grammy nominated, chart topping, record hopeless fountain kingdom.
Immediately after launching itself into the top 10 in 40 plus countries worldwide and being the first number one album by a female artist in the US in 2017, hopeless fountain kingdom held special significance for Halsey’s fans. Singles like Bad At Love and Now Or Never showcase a connection between artist and audience that is increasingly rare in today’s musical landscape. The record’s wild ambition and musical abandon has seen it garner breathless reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone and NME and recently saw Frangipane grace the cover of Billboard, Paper & Playboy Magazine.
While in Auckland earlier this year on a promotional visit, Halsey hinted at a return - that day has finally come as her debut tour is announced, returning hopeless fountain kingdom to the fans it was lovingly written for, and ensuring Halsey maintains her permanent place in our hearts.”
