Halsey brings Hopeless Fountain Kingdom tour to NZ next fall

Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum alternative pop songstress Halsey is set for another highly-anticipated concert at Auckland's Spark Arena next year, in support of her latest album 'Hopeless Foundation Kingdom'.

Born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane in 1994, Halsey went from putting songs on SoundCloud as a teenager to releasing her first full-length album 'Badlands' in 2015, stunning the industry with its debut at no. 2 on the Billboard charts, as well as achieving multiple top 10 chart positions worldwide, including no. 3 on the RIANZ album chart. 'Badlands' features the hit singles 'Ghost', 'New Americana' (RIANZ certified Gold), 'Colors' (RIANZ certified Gold) and 'Castle'.

Immediately after launching itself into the top 10 in 40 plus countries worldwide and being the first number one album by a female artist in the US in 2017, 'hopeless fountain kingdom' holds special significance for Halsey's fans. Singles like 'Bad At Love' and 'Now Or Never' showcase a connection between artist and audience that is increasingly rare in today's musical landscape.

"Halsey shows off all of her wild musical ambitions on hopeless fountain kingdom, a bold second album that consolidates all the strengths of the 2015 debut Badlands. Judging from hopeless fountain kingdom, she could go anywhere from here." - Rolling Stone

Whether it's that unmistakable voice, her take-no-prisoners attitude, or her irreverent approach to social media, there's something about the way this 23-year-old New Jersey native operates that we just can't get enough of. Hailed by Billboard Magazine, Forbes and MTV as 'the voice of her generation', Halsey's meteoric rise to pop stardom can literally be tracked over the last two years.

It was in July 2016 when Halsey featured on the Chainsmokers single 'Closer'—which was number one in the U.S. for 12 weeks with over 1 billion streams on Spotify alone. And if that wasn't enough, Halsey just released 'Him & I'—a modern tale of rebellion and reckless love with rapper G-Eazy (who is also her boyfriend).

Don't miss Halsey's return this 2018!
