Together, they will hit the road in October with Behind The Lines, their first dual national tour of Aotearoa. This incredible show sees the artists merge the music from their latest albums Rules of Engagement and Survivance to deliver some powerful messages of nationhood, cultural endurance, spirituality and unity. They will take the audience on a journey that aims to be moving, enlightening and uplifting.

Both albums were greatly received with Rules of Engagement topping the New Zealand Music Charts on entry and Survivance going straight to no.1 on iTunes.

Fresh from a sell-out show and rave reviews at Darwin Arts Festival, Ria Hall and Rob Ruha will tour with band The Witch Dr., an alliance of the finest musicians Aotearoa has to offer.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see these award-winning Maori artists together in concert. Come Behind the Lines of the songs, to the frontlines of liberation with music that will move you to the beat of a new, self-determined Aotearoa Nation!
