The Iconic Herbie Hancock to tour Australia & New Zealand this October, with his stellar band

“Herbie Hancock is jazz’s enduring rock star” Star Tribune

“… completely engrossing” The Guardian

Living legend Herbie Hancock is set to light up stages across Australia and New Zealand in October, in his first visit since 2019, promising an electrifying evening from one of music’s most revered names.

The tour will commence at Auckland’s Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre on October 8, followed by Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington on October 9. It heads to Sydney for 2 shows at the Opera House Concert Hall on October 11 and 12, followed by Canberra Theatre on October 14, QPAC Concert Hall in Brisbane on October 17, and a starring role at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival – Sidney Myer Music Bowl on October 19. Next stop is Adelaide’s Festival Theatre on October 20, concluding at Perth Concert Hall on October 22.

A Live Nation pre-sale commences Wednesday, July 10 at 9am, running until Thursday, July 11 at 8am.

With a career spanning seven decades and a staggering 14 GRAMMY awards, few artists have had more influence on modern music than Herbie Hancock. The creative force behind timeless classics like Cantaloupe Island, Chameleon, and Rockit, Hancock’s genre-transcending appeal and unmistakable style have cemented his status as “today’s greatest living artist,” as extolled by The Washington Post. As the immortal Miles Davis said in his autobiography, “Herbie was the step after Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, and I haven’t heard anybody yet who has come after him.” He has transcended limitations and genres while maintaining his unmistakable voice, amazing audiences across the globe.

This is an opportunity not to be missed – join this icon of modern music as he takes to the stage across Australia this October.

Lime Cordiale announce Enough Of The Sweet Talk Australia & New Zealand Tour this October

LIME CORDIALE ANNOUNCE ENOUGH OF THE SWEET TALK AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND TOUR THIS OCTOBER

With special guests Ball Park Music on all Aus dates

After much speculation and anticipation, local legends Lime Cordiale today reveal they will hit the road in October for a run of headline shows across Australia and New Zealand.

Playing their biggest rooms to date, Lime Cordiale’s Enough Of The Sweet Talk Tour will kick off at Perth’s HBF Stadium on Thursday 3 October before heading through arenas in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, wrapping up at Brisbane’s iconic Riverstage on Sunday 13 October. The band then heads over to New Zealand for shows in Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland in late-October.

In a massive coup, Ball Park Music will join the Enough Of The Sweet Talk party on all Australian dates, bringing big energy and good times for all!

“We’ve been spending so much time overseas, it’s so exciting to come home for our biggest shows yet. We’re putting a lot into making the production and stage set super exciting but as always, we want to make this feel like an intimate 100 capacity party.
Ball Park Music are debatably the best band in the country. They’ve been an inspiration to us since we first met 10 years ago. We can’t believe it’s taken this long to tour together”,
said Lime Cordiale.

“We’ve wanted to go on tour with the Lime legends for years but it’s always been a pipe dream… until now! Can’t wait to share the stage and put on incredible concerts together”, said Ball Park Music.

Frontier members can access presale tickets from 1pm (local time) on Tuesday 4 June, before general public tickets go on sale at 1pm (local time) on Thursday 6 June.

Lime Cordiale are taking the world by storm, delivering their infectious live performance to wildly enthusiastic crowds across the globe. Their genuine, generous interactions with their fans have made them one of Australia’s most in-demand acts, selling out shows from Vancouver to Vienna and everywhere in between.

“Their energy was immediately electric…”Backseat Mafia

“Lime Cordiale are a seriously impressive unit. A wholly captivating band that sit just as nicely on stage as they do on your car sound system on a long sunny drive”No Taste

In 2023 alone, the duo branched out with the release of their own carbon neutral beer Largo, landed four spots in the triple j Hottest 100, completed a regional Australian tour, and were awarded a Rolling Stone Readers Choice Award. Over the course of their career the band have been nominated for multiple ARIA Awards and have released two albums, 14 Steps To A Better You and Permanent Vacation, along with Cordi Elba, their acclaimed collaboration with actor/musician/DJ and record label boss Idris Elba.

Brisbane’s melancholic pop masters, Ball Park Music, are one of Australia’s most beloved contemporary bands and a staple on the touring circuit, frequently playing Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Groovin’ The Moo and selling out their own headline dates.

The indie heroes create music that is “emotionally stirring and witty, filled with melodies and hooks that’ll be rattling around your head after only a few spins” (triple j), with a live show praised as “indie rock uplift” (NME). They’ll bring songs from their latest album Weirder & Weirder along with favourites from their extensive catalogue, when they hit the road around Australia later this year.

If you’re into big charisma, top notch on-stage energy and epic tunes, spend a night with Lime Cordiale and Ball Park Music this spring… you won’t regret it!

In partnership with FEAT. Live, $1 from every ticket sold across the Enough Of The Sweet Talk Tour will go towards a solar slice initiative. More information at feat.ltd

Stay tuned for new music from Lime Cordiale coming soon…!
