Th’ Dudes are back in business! The Kiwi music icons will hit the road in November and December for 10 shows, with the addition of a third Auckland concert at the Town Hall on Thursday 26 November.

Tickets for the new Auckland concert go on sale at midday on Tuesday 23 June at Ticketmaster. Get in quick to catch these Kiwi legends together for a rare tour


Iconic Kiwi band Th’ Dudes announce new dates for Th’ Bliss Tour, with the nine-date tour now scheduled to kick off in Wellington on 13 November. 

“We’ll be back with the same reunion, same songs, same Lez high kicks. And all with a greater sense of being alive & healthy,” says Dave Dobbyn.

“In the meantime, everyone stay safe and do what Dr Ashley Bloomfield tells you.”

All tickets previously purchased are valid for the new rescheduled dates (19 & 20 November, Auckland Town Hall). No action is required; show up on the night with your existing ticket to gain entry. 


Kiwi icons Th’ Dudes announce they’ll reunite for Th’ Bliss Tour, performing five dates across New Zealand in April 2020. The news comes just days ahead of the band receiving the Legacy Award and being inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame at the Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards.

Th’ Dudes’ bass player Lez White, who is based in Australia, says it's always a treat to come back home to New Zealand.  

“After each Dudes outing, it's always felt like unfinished business, so I'm really looking forward to treading the boards and pouting into the spotlight one last time," he says.

“I’m super excited to be playing the classic Dudes songs to our fans and introducing them to another generation of music lovers,” says drummer Bruce Hambling.

Originally formed as high school band Krispie in 1975, and disbanding in 1980, Th’ Dudes had an incredible impact on the New Zealand music scene, with hits like ‘Be Mine Tonight’, ‘Bliss’, ‘That Look In Your Eye’, ‘Right First Time’ and ‘Walking in Light’. They won Top Group and Single of the Year for ‘Be Mine Tonight’ at the 1979 New Zealand Music Awards, and stopped playing live in 1980, ahead of the release of their second album Where Are The Boys

Since then Th’ Dudes have reunited just once, for a tour in 2006 that saw 11 shows expanded to 17, due to the incredible demand for tickets, and visits to favourite holiday spots the following summer. Th’ Bliss Tour is the first chance to see Th’ Dudes live in concert in 13 years, for shows promising high energy entertainment and all the hits. 

Fans who want to feel the ‘70's pub vibe can purchase a special ‘Bliss’ ticket to stand right up the front close to the band, while seated tickets are available for those who want to sit back and enjoy the show.

It’s taken years to get the band together again, and no-one knows if it’ll happen again. Don’t miss Th’ Bliss Tour.
