Kiwi rockers Blindspott announce ADDED dates on there ‘Reunion Tour’
Blindspott sent New Zealanders into a frenzy in August, when The Rock announced that the multi-platinum selling band was getting back together for a one-off show in celebration of The Rock 1500 countdown and then followed up by sell-out shows in December
But now due to popular demand, Blindspott are adding 5 NEW shows across the country to coincide with their headline appearance at Homegrown On March 23rd in Wellington.
Presented by The Rock, they will play The Factory in Hamilton on March 22nd; The Union Hall in Dunedin on March 29th; Tillermans in Invercargill on March 30; The Mayfair in New Plymouth on April 5th; and Linden Estate Winery on April 6th.
Blindspott infamously split in 2007, after 10 years together in which they garnered much critical acclaim, a hugely devoted fan-base as well as enduring a few well-publicised fall-outs.
Their first two albums - 2003’s self-titled BLINDSPOTT and 2006’s END THE SILENCE topped the charts and established the band as one of the most respected and revered rock bands in Kiwi music history. Their hits, such as ‘Nil By Mouth’, ‘Room To Breathe’, ‘Phlex’ are still blasted on rock radio to this day, with this year’s The Rock 1500 boasting no less than 9 songs from Blindspott.
Fans had expected their show for The Rock 1500 would be one-off, but such was the overwhelming reaction to news of their reunion, Damian Alexander (vocals), Marcus Powell (guitar, backing vocals), and Shelton Woolright (drums) are taking to the road once again.
