Liam Finn Announces NZ June Tour!

Monday 12 May 2008

Liam Finn returns to the stage in New Zealand with his trusted companion Eliza Jane Barnes to perform two intimate shows in June in Wellington and Auckland, on the back of a stellar performance on Later with Jools Holland and recently signing to UK label Transgressive Records.

Supporting the US release of his stunning debut 'I'll Be Lightning", Liam has taken little time establishing himself as a true talent on the world stage. So far he has wowed audiences supporting Eddie Vedder on his recent US West Coast tour, eight critically acclaimed shows at sxsw and two sold out solo shows in LA. Not to mention TV performances on both The Late Show: David Letterman and The Late Late Show: Craig Ferguson.

After another impressive TV performance, this time on the prestigious BBC show Later with Jools Holland, Liam becomes the most recent edition to the roster of UK label Trangressive Records; home of Foals, Iron + Wine, The Shins - being hailed by them, as "the most important signing to date". Liam tackles the UK in July.
