New Christchurch under 18 show announced - An “Under 18” matinee show in Christchurch has been added to the sold out Broods ‘Evergreen’ tour. The additional show will take place on Saturday 23rd August at The Bedford at CPSA, before their R18 gig later that evening.

The matinee is strictly for youth under 18, and attendees must present a current student ID to gain entry. This Broods Under 18 show will be the first in a series of youth orientated events backed by CERA’s Winter Chill Funding team focusing on the cultural and communal rebuild and revitalization of the region.Winter Chill is a series of fun and exciting youth-led events and activities for young people. It has been developed in response to findings from the 2013 Youth Wellbeing Survey which highlighted the need for safe and enjoyable places to go and things to do. 

Until now, kiwi fans have only had the pleasure of seeing Broods perform a handful of times. After multiple overseas appearances, the band will take their thrilling live show to the eager masses and play headline shows to Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch audiences for the very first time.

Georgia and Caleb Nott’s musical project Broods emerged in 2013 with the release of the hit single 'Bridges' (Dryden Street through Universal). The song flew up the charts and prompted an amazing whirlwind of interest, which was cemented when they signed international recording contracts in the USA (Capitol Records) and in the UK (Polydor).

Broods released their self-titled debut EP in January this year to international acclaim, and have toured across Australia, the US and UK. They’ve shared stages with the likes of Ellie Goulding, Haim and CHVRCHES, and recently appeared on Late Night With Seth Myers in the US. In September, Broods will kick of the tour as support across Sam Smith’s US tour.

The organisers would like to assure all parents that this concert will be secure, safe and alcohol free. So everybody can come out and have a great time!
