A recent show in Los Angeles - only one of two US shows to celebrate the release of White Chalk - saw her raw talent showcased on stage. The Los Angeles Times was thrilled with her performance, declaring PJ the “art-rock queen of the meaningful scream.”

On stage, PJ Harvey sits firmly in the ‘not to be missed’ column.

So what can you expect when she comes to New Zealand? Well, we have it on good authority that PJ Harvey will perform an intimate solo set which sees her move between guitar, piano, autoharp and an array of instruments, helping blend a career-spanning set with her new material seamlessly.

Favourites from past albums are all included and are transformed in a way we’ve previously never seen. There have been plenty of plaudits for the opening night of PJ’s European tour with critics saying it was “the best show of the decade to date,” and “truly blistering.” One critic even said the new album may be “sublimely haunting but PJ Harvey still knows how to rock.”

In the music world today, few have ascended to the heights or achieved the longevity that has been awarded to PJ Harvey. One of the finest and most respected figures amongst her peers, PJ has collaborated with musical alumni including Thom Yorke, Marianne Faithfull, Josh Homme and Nick Cave - associations that can only attest to the high regard PJ is held in amongst her peers.

However, the respect extends beyond PJ’s contemporaries. Of her eighth studio album, White Chalk (available now through Universal Music), critics have been nothing short of smitten. “

See you there for what promises to be a real belter of a show.
