Cowboy Junkies reveal New Zealand dates for 2020

After 20 glorious years, Canadian alt-country heroes Cowboy Junkies are heading to NZ for a comeback tour in May 2020. Featuring a catalogue of their acclaimed albums, the group are set to play a trio of shows at Auckland's Bruce Mason Centre, Wellington's The Opera House and Christchurch's Isaac Theatre Royal. Following their NZ dates, they'll be travelling across Australia and wrap up their five-date tour, hitting the Melbourne Recital Centre, Adelaide's The Gov, Perth's Astor Theatre, Sydney's Enmore Theatre and Brisbane's The Tivoli Theatre.

Anyone who has followed Cowboy Junkies' three decade-long career knows the band have always remained true to their unique artistic vision. After inadvertently starting a music revolution in the late '80s, the group have successfully endeared themselves to an audience unwavering in its loyalty. The Junkies have gained worldwide fame with their breakthrough album 'The Trinity Session' that went on to sell more than a million copies—foretelling the subsequent alternative-country movement in the '90s and beyond. The album featured the band's unforgettable cover of the Velvet Underground's 'Sweet Jane'—combining folk, country, blues and rock in a way that had never been heard before.

Last year, The Junkies have released their most recent studio album 'All That Reckoning'. Upon its release, the record has received rave reviews from fans and critics alike:

"...it's equal parts tenderness and edge, sensual and beautifully disturbing." - Mojo Magazine

"'All That Reckoning' shows Cowboy Junkies in peak form—adding another inspired, alluring album to their repertoire." - The Associated Press

"...as vital as anything they've done." - National Public Radio

Cowboy Junkies' tour de force performances are sure to be one for the books so don't dare miss out!
