The War On Drugs return to NZ for the first time since 2018!

With special guests Spoon, plus Indigo Sparke, the band will tour in December 2023 in support of I Don’t Live Here Anymore, praised by GQ as “the band’s clearest, most vibrant, and upbeat.”

Led by Adam Granduciel, the GRAMMY-Award winning band has steadily emerged as one of this century’s great rock and roll synthesists, removing the gaps between the underground and the mainstream, between the obtuse and the anthemic, making records that wrestle a fractured past into a unified and engrossing present. Throughout their career, The War On Drugs has steadily evolved into one of rock’s most compelling live acts.

Joining The War On Drugs for the tour will be one of rock's most acclaimed acts, Spoon. Austin’s most esteemed rock ambassadors have released ten albums to date, including a string of five straight top 10 records: "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga" (2007), "Transference" (2010), "They Want My Soul" (2014), "Hot Thoughts" (2017), and "Lucifer on the Sofa" (2022). Hailed by TIME as “one of the greatest American rock bands”, Spoon will play in New Zealand for the first time since the release of their Grammy nominated tenth album Lucifer On The Sofa.

Also opening will be Australian singer songwriter Indigo Sparke.
