New acoustic album “The Shadows of Atlas Dawn” out now.
Ivy Blue, whose new acoustic album The Shadows Of Atlas Dawn, was released on January 28th 2021, will be returning to the road after a nearly 2 year absence to perform a series of stories and songs evenings on The Shadows Of Atlas Dawn tour. Ivy Blue (real name James Brodie) will be performing stripped down versions of his music across four studio albums (Chasing Avenues, Longview, Echoes and Silence, and The Shadows Of Atlas Dawn) while sharing stories about his life growing up with Autism and ADHD and the lessons he’s learned along the way. Promising to be an intimate evening with hints of humour and motivation, this promises to be one of the most unique music events of the year.
Details of the precise schedule are currently being finalised and we will commence announcements of specific dates for the different territories shortly. However, we can reveal that The Shadows Of Atlas Dawn Tour will open in the North Island of New Zealand in mid-June before playing around the country throughout the year. In addition, Ivy Blue also intends to play in Australia for the first time later this year now that a trans-Tasman bubble has been confirmed, and we aim to tour internationally in 2022 as the global situation allows.
James Brodie comments,
“I cannot wait to get back out on tour. When The Shadows Of Atlas Dawn Tour starts in June it will be 21 months since my last full-length show in Napier and nearly 10 months since I last played a shorter acoustic show in Wellington, so I am raring to go. I thrive on touring and getting out to fans, so it will be a great feeling to get back on stage with these small solo and stripped shows and get back on stage for you guys. I haven’t played a full-length show in New Zealand for a few years so it will be a pleasure to play at home again. Of course I haven't decided on the set list as yet and won’t do until I start rehearsing but I’m really look forward to playing a number of songs from The Shadows Of Atlas Dawn live, especially as they fit the stories from my life that I will be sharing on the night so well; and with these stripped down shows I can’t wait to bring these stories and songs to life. However, as it’s been a while since I’ve seen you all, I’m sure the show include plenty of older fan favourites too (including a few songs from Echoes and Silence seeing as I never got to perform this album live due to the lockdown last year). I think the fans will be delighted by the show I have in mind and you can rest assured that I am working hard to bring you something spectacular with a lot of heart. You certainly deserve it for your patience”.
Ivy Blue: The Shadows Of Atlas Dawn Tour plays Dunedin on Tuesday June 15th and Wednesday June 16th at the Playhouse Theatre. Tickets on sale from Tuesday April 28th at 9am from Eventfinda.
