Solid Entertainment and Banished Music are thrilled to announce the return of Sharon Van Etten and her full band to New Zealand. The Darkness Fades tour arrives in support of her brilliant brand new sixth album, We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong. “Stunning” is the word most used to describe Sharon Van Etten’s concerts. ​​She's one of the century's great songwriters, a truly exceptional lyricist, and as for that voice… 

Last in Auckland in 2019, playing a sold-out Powerstation show in support of Remind Me Tomorrow, Sharon Van Etten was a musician at the peak of her powers. The album went on to become one of the year’s most universally praised Albums of the Year, and cemented Van Etten as one of the most influential artists of her generation. Her accompanying concerts were breathtaking, her performances a visceral connection with her audiences. 

Returning for her third tour of New Zealand, Sharon Van Etten holds a strong connection with her fans and a storied history that rippled around the world from previous visits. Her first tour in 2015 travelled to the four major centres, leaving audiences spell-bound with her sublime performances. A surprise live TV cross from soundcheck into Campbell Live resulted in the host being moved to tears and the clip making headlines on music news feeds worldwide.  

“Horrifically good…..anyone who saw Sharon Van Etten last night at Auckland’s Powerstation will be convinced. 

The woman is a rock star…..she’s bloody magnificent” - stuff.co.nz  

“A stunning show from an artist at the top of her game.” - 13th Floor  

“Live, her voice is flawless – rich, velvety and expressive, it is capable of imparting a great deal of emotional heft.”  - NME  

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
