ANDREW KEOGHAN ANNOUNCES ADDED NZ SHOWS
Andrew Keoghan will be hitting the road this April on what has become a five-date tour of New Zealand and Australia.
Today, Keoghan reveals an eclectic range of artists who will join him on these Australasian performances, including Flip Grater, Lisa Crawley, Madeira and Eva Prowse.
A New Plymouth show on April 8th has also been added to the tour run.
Keoghan will be joined on tour by drummer Alistair Deverick (Neil Finn, Lawrence Arabia) and bassist Cass Basil (Tiny Ruins).
Andrew Keoghan 'Something Going On' NZ Tour:
Keoghan's tour opens April 8th with a solo fundraising show for the charity and safe haven Taranaki Retreat, in New Plymouth, with support from local singer-songwriter Diarmuid Cahill.
Keoghan joined by indie-folk artist Flip Grater. For Flip Grater, the evening marks a welcome return to the stage after a year's maternity leave. She'll perform a slew of news songs and those from 2014's Pigalle.
Keoghan plays Melbourne this Anzac Day, alongside dreamy melodic-pop songstress Lisa Crawley.
At Wellington's Meow on April 27, Eva Prowse rounds out the billing showcase songs from her 2016 synth-pop album Humid Nights.
Keoghan's Auckland show at The Tuning Fork will be opened by special guest Madeira, the alt-pop project of Kim Pflaum, formerly of Yumi Zouma.
The tour accompanies the release of his new single, 'Something Going On' off his critically acclaimed second album Every Orchid Offering. Easily a standout track with its haunting refrain, Keoghan's latest single is a wry narrative about a long distance relationship, supported by Cure-esk guitar, impeccable bass playing and soft beds of vocal harmonies.

'A forward-thinking, intelligent, left-field pop album' – The Listener
'An audacious and fascinating musical kaleidoscope' – That Music Mag
'Admirably uncompromising. It will pay large dividends over many listens' – Elsewhere
