Kia ora friends of Finn Andrews, The Veils, and Banished Music,
As some of you (but not all of you) will have seen on social media, we have postponed the upcoming Finn Andrews tour dates, due to the ongoing and evolving Covid-19 situation.
We have rescheduled the dates, in the hope that you will hold onto your tickets, rather than asking for a refund. As you may have seen from lots of industry providers, this is how you can help and support Finn, and Banished Music through a very difficult time that we are facing together.
That said, we understand that you also could be facing a tough time, given the financial implications of Covid-19, so if you do need a refund, please contact us and we can arrange it.
Your current tickets are valid for the below-rescheduled dates:
Auckland - October 16th, Mt Eden War Memorial Hall
Wellington - October 17th, Meow
Christchurch - October 18th, Cassel's Blue Smoke
Oamaru - October 23rd, Grainstore Gallery
Dunedin - October 24th, Dog With Two Tails
Hastings - We are still working on this replacement date, please hold your tickets! Rest assured, we will 100% have a new date for you as soon as possible.
Nothing is required from you, simply hold onto your tickets and turn up to the new show, in your town.
If you are unable to make the new dates but are in a position to donate them to friends, please do so, if that is not an option, but you are in a financial position to forgo your refund, which effectively passes on the cost of the tickets to the artist, we encourage you to visit ForgoMyRefund.org.
This tool allows ticket buyers to forgo their refund to support artists and event organisers who have had to cancel their events. Though the public is concerned about how this outbreak will affect them personally, there is also already a huge sense of how the public can support local organisations and businesses which are core to our communities.
For Hastings ticket holders, please note Lawrence Arabia will no longer be performing due to conflicting schedules between Lawrence and Finn. We promise you are still in for an excellent show and hope that you can support us by still attending. If required, we can arrange a partial refund, please contact us directly via the 'contact your organiser' button on your ticket.
Many thanks and hope you are all keeping well in this crazy time! Stay home, put your feet up, stay safe.
Yours in solidarity, and music.
Finn Andrews (The Veils) has announced a six-date Autumn tour of Aotearoa, New Zealand this April.
The tour includes four full band shows and two solo performances.
These include a Sitting Room Session in Hawkes Bay alongside acclaimed songwriter Lawrence Arabia and support for the Auckland show from the beloved and mystical Carnivorous Plant Society.
Other guests to be announced.
Since releasing his critically acclaimed debut solo album One Piece At A Time in early 2019, Finn has toured extensively playing churches and town halls throughout the UK, North America & Europe, and is now bringing the tour back to New Zealand. The album featured the singles One By The Venom, Stairs To The Roof, and A Shot Through The Heart (Then Down In Flames).
It was co-produced by Tom Healy at Auckland's The Lab and features contributions from Cass Basil & Alex Freer (both of Tiny Ruins), Reb Fountain and Nina Siegler on backing vocals, and string arrangements by Victoria Kelly.
2020 has seen the release of two albums B-sides Body Of Light and My Lotus Flower & Me.
