Pioneers of the kiwi music industry, The Feelers, are thrilled to announce a comprehensive NZ tour this summer; joined at select locations by iconic NZ band Stellar* who celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album 'Mix'. The route will see the group perform their greatest hits in Invercargill, Dunedin, Christchurch, Blenheim, Whanganui, Upper Hutt, Wellington, Auckland, Hamilton, Manurewa, Mt Maunganui, Browns Bay, Paihia, Waihi and New Plymouth.
Schoolboy friends James Reid and Hamish Gee (The Feelers) started a legacy that has spawned some of the greatest songs written in New Zealand. Since bursting onto the music scene, the band have amassed some remarkable statistics including: a quarter of a million album sales, five multi-platinum albums, five number one albums and seven number one singles. Having accumulated five NZ Music Awards, three APRA most played song of the year awards and more radio airplay, The Feelers remain the largest selling NZ band ever signed by Warner Music NZ in their 48-year history.
Some of the many hits they promise to play at the upcoming shows include tracks like 'Pressure Man', 'Venus', 'Communicate', 'Larger Than Life', 'One World', 'Astronaut' and the 2011 Rugby World Cup song ‘Right Here, Right Now’ (a cover of the Jesus Jones hit song). Band member Hamish Gee states, "the band can't wait to get back on the road. It's been a few years since we've played a large summer tour and we're excited to be test driving a couple of new tracks, as well as smashing out all our favorite hits from the past two decades. So stoked to be playing alongside our great mates Stellar*."Aside from their massive tour announcement, the band will also be dropping a new single appropriately titled 'Summer Ride'.
