After missing out last year when he came Down Under for the Byron Bay Bluesfest, Kiwi fans of celebrated English singer-songwriter Newton Faulkner will get the chance to hear selections from his decade-strong career in a solo show at Auckland’s The Tuning Fork on November 28, 2019.
Faulkner’s Auckland gig will come on the heels of a huge headline tour across the UK celebrating 10 years in music, and the release of a 31-track double album The Very Best Of Newton Faulkner… So Far.
Newton says: “It’s going to be awesome to be doing a tour where the challenge isn’t to do as much new stuff as possible but just to do the best set, with the best songs from any point in my career.”
Faulkner has sold over 1.5 million records with 180 million streams, making him one of the UK’s most successful singer-songwriters this millennium. The talented musician and performer has also contributed to television and film soundtracks, and Faulkner has taken to the stage as Johnny in the West End season of the musical American Idiot.
All this from an artist who is still only 34 years old. Don’t miss Newton Faulkner up close and personal at The Tuning Fork this November. Tickets go on sale at Ticketmaster from noon on July 24.
