Off the back of the release of his brand-new album The Hardest Love, global superstar Dean Lewis has announced The Future Is Bright world tour which will head to New Zealand in March 2023.
The new March 2023 dates replace the rescheduled November 2022 dates, which was the result of a change to Dean’s international promotional schedule.
The multiple-award-winning, multiple-Platinum-certified singer-songwriter will perform three concerts, taking in Wellington’s Opera House on Wednesday March 15, Christchurch’s Town Hall on Friday March 17, and closing the tour with a final show at Auckland’s iconic Civic Theatre on Saturday March 18.
The 10-track The Hardest Love album includes previous singles ‘Looks Like Me’ and ‘Hurtless’, as well as the emotive ‘How Do I Say Goodbye’ – a devastating song about the looming loss of a parent.
With over 7.5 billion streams, Dean was welcomed into the Spotify Billions Club with his hit song ‘Be Alright’. Over the past few years, Dean has performed to hundreds of sold-out crowds worldwide, including headline tours and major festivals in the US, UK, Europe and Australia, and the 2019 AFL Grand Final in Australia. Dean has recently collaborated with Dutch DJ / Producer Martin Garrix, and Norwegian DJ / Producer Kygo.
