Newton Faulkner heads his way back to New Zealand this November

Following his intimate 2010 'Rebuilt By Humans' shows, British folk-rock artist Newton Faulkner is back to celebrate his latest tour 'The Very Best of Newton Faulkner'. He will be playing Auckland's The Tuning Fork this November, in addition to his previously announced Australian leg of the tour happening at Freo.Social in Perth, Lion Arts Centre in Adelaide, Triffid in Brisbane, Cambridge Hotel in Newcastle, Oxford Art Factory in Sydney and The Croxton in Melbourne. Apart from these shows, Newton will also be performing at this year's much-awaited Queenscliff Music Festival.

Newton's Australasian dates come on the heels of a huge headline tour across the UK, and the release of his 31-track double album 'The Very Best Of Newton Faulkner…So Far'. The album includes fan favourites such as 'Dream Catch Me', 'Write It On Your Skin' and 'Clouds' as well as three brand new songs, all showcasing his brilliance as a songwriter. In addition, Newton's renowned cover versions will be presented on a second disc, including newly-recorded live versions of iconic songs 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and 'Send Me On My Way'.

Newton comments: "'The Best Of...' feels like a real milestone, I'm so proud of it as a body of work and the second disc was so much fun to make. I love the challenge of covering songs, which probably is reflected in my song choices. For people that have seen me live before, there are some old favourites and there's also some tracks no one has ever heard me do… It's going to be awesome to be doing a tour where the challenge isn't to do as much new stuff as possible, but just to do the best set, with the best songs from any point in my career."

Throughout his immensely successful career, Newton has sold over one million records with 180 million streams across the globe—making him one of the UK's most successful singer-songwriters this millennium. This young folk hero has also contributed to TV and film soundtracks, and has played in acclaimed rock musical 'American Idiot' and Jeff Wayne's legendary rock opera 'The War of the Worlds'.

Don't sleep on your chance to catch Newton Faulkner performing all his greatest hits, live this November!
