Bluesfest Touring and Love Police are thrilled to announce that travelling merchants of R&B blues Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats are taking to the road across Australasia this April. With one live date set for Auckland’s Powerstation on Wednesday 10th April, the band then head over to Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne in conjunction with their performance at Byron Bay Bluesfest.
Nathaniel Rateliff and the seven-piece Soul band will be gracing the Powerstation stage in 2019 in what will be his first ever New Zealand show. Known as party animals on stage, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats offer a unique live performance with a front man who possesses a husky sixties styled voice with inflections of Gospel and a vibrant soulful band to support it. With a new album under their belt following a reinvention of Nathaniel’s style in 2015, this is a live performance that is not to be missed!
