Opshop Tours on Pins & Needles

Opshop is getting back into the swing of things with a three date tour planned for end of June.

Capitalising on the instant success of the first single Pins & Needles, and an appetite suitably whetted after playing 10 Gigs in a day to kick off NZ Music Month, Opshop will play three shows in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in June.

While Opshop will be playing the songs that have helped to establish them as one of NZ’s premier rock acts, the Opshop set will include the new single Pins & Needles, which after almost a month in the charts seems destined to become another Opshop standard.

Says front-man Jason Kerrison, “We’re all really looking forward to hitting the main centres next month, we love the energy we get from the fans and we just want to get amongst it and go hard”.

Opshop plays Auckland’s Powerstation on Thursday 24 June, Wellington’s Bodega on Friday 25 June and their home turf, the garden city Christchurch at The Bedford on Saturday 26 June. All shows are GA, licensed and R18.

OPSHOP’s Pins & Needles Tour will be supported by The Earlybirds in Auckland & Wellington and Dukes in Christchurch.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday 31 May.
