As a result of Australia and New Zealand’s international border restrictions, Patti Smith and Her Band are unable to present their Bluesfest Touring side shows in 2021.

A message from the Promoter “We are working diligently with Patti Smith and her team to reschedule these shows as they are still very eager to come to New Zealand and perform for you, our wonderful audiences. We appreciate your patience during this time and ask that you hold onto your tickets whilst we work through finalising new dates.”

As information becomes available, you will be contacted directly by Ticketmaster via e-mail with further details and announcements.

The Godmother of Punk – Patti Smith -  is coming to New Zealand.

After conquering Bluesfest in 2017, Patti Smith and Her Band took home the Helpmann Award that year for Best International Contemporary Concert. With a stellar band including her son, Jackson, 2020 is set to be even better!  

Smith’s legacy as an artist is already guaranteed. Her debut LP Horses was the beginning of a long musical career that resonates even greater today and has inspired countless others along the way. The album has achieved many notable recognitions over the years and has been included on many all-time best album lists. It has been followed by another nine albums of original material, books of poetry and a best-selling memoir, an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, world tours and personal appearances. Patti’s list of accomplishments doesn’t end there. She is a recipient of the Polar Music Prize and holds the honour of Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres from the French Ministry of Culture.

Horses has been cited as one of the greatest albums of all time by numerous sources including NME and Rolling Stone magazines, and marks the beginning of a long and significant musical career for Patti Smith. Her award-winning books are M Train (2015), Just Kids, and most recently, Year of the Monkey (2019). Aside from recording, performing, creating art and writing, Patti is strongly involved in social issues and continues to participate in various human rights organisations.
