Back by popular demand! Post Modern Jukebox bring their vintage twist on modern pop songs back to fans across the country

New Zealand loves Postmodern Jukebox! Following two successful tours over the last two years, Nice Events is proud to announce Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox will return to New Zealand in September 2017 for another mammoth national tour.

"We're once again excited to bring our vintage universe of pop music performed by some of the greatest talent in the world back Down Under! Dress to impress and plan on having a night to remember!" – Scott Bradlee.

2016 was another big year for PMJ! They completed a 75-city sold-out European run in June 2016 and a 45-date North American tour from September to November 2016, which included their first-ever performance at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Created by Bradlee, the rotating collective of Postmodern Jukebox has spent the past few years amassing more than 600 million YouTube views and 2+ million subscribers, performed on Good Morning America, topped iTunes and Billboard charts and played hundreds of shows to packed-house crowds around the world. As NPR put it, they’ve done this by taking current Top 40 hits and re-imagining them as coming from older eras of popular music. In one such remake, Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox turned Miley Cyrus’ We Can’t Stop into a doo-wop ditty that’s garnered over 16.4 million views. Last year, they envisioned Radiohead’s alt-rock hit Creep as a torch-like ballad that’s racked up over 25 million views and was named one of the “9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015” by People magazine. Multi-Grammy winning artist Lorde praised Postmodern Jukebox’s vintage take on her hit single, Royals, which has been viewed over 17 million times, as her “favourite.” They recently performed a ‘30s jazz remake of Elle King’s “Ex’s & Oh’s” for MT.V UK – click HERE to watch.

The group's accomplishments has earned them praise from a plethora of media outlets.

“Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox are all about reimagining music and framing it in beautiful new ways.” - Mashable

“Scott Bradlee’s group is known for retro-fying modern hit songs into viral success.” - Entertainment Weekly

“If you’ve been on YouTube in the last couple of years, then you’re familiar with the everything- new-is-old-again brilliance of the viral phenomenon known as Postmodern Jukebox.” - Yahoo! Music

Since beginning their touring career in 2014, Postmodern Jukebox has consistently played in bigger venues each time they’ve returned to a market. In 2015 they played two sold-out shows at the 2,100-capacity PlayStation Theatre in New York City. This year, they returned to the Big Apple on October 7th to play a sold out show the historic Radio City Music Hall. In 2017 they add the iconic Sydney Opera House to their list of venues – a major international milestone in the touring schedule for Scott Bradlee’s troupe of performers.

Postmodern Jukebox is certainly a rebuke to the contention that ‘they don’t make ‘em like they used to’ – and there’s something truly special about witnessing their musical magic live.

To echo Bradlee’s own invitation: “Dust off the turntable, fix yourself a stiff drink, and get comfy. Welcome to the world of Postmodern Jukebox.”
