Aotearoa’s Dub & Bass heavy-weights, the space-weaving Salmonella Dub, are heading out on the road with a run of spring shows nationwide this year.
The multiple platinum-selling and award-winning D&B pioneers are performing six dates taking in Auckland, Tauranga, Rotorua, Christchurch, Oakura and Havelock North, delivering what promises to be a phenomenal two-hour multimedia dance floor set of the Dub’s classics, alongside a bag of new tunes from their forthcoming album 'Return To Our Kōwhai'.
Joining the band on stage for this auspicious spring tour are old time members Conan Wilcox and Tiki Taane, plus special guests Whirimako Black and Laughton Kora. As featured artists on the new album, Tiki, Whirimako, and Laughton will bring a dynamic vocal power-house to the bands huge multi genre live show. And in a nod to the early days, Tiki will also feature on the desk as dub meister for a bracket of new album tunes as he did when he first joined the band back in 1996.
The band have had a busy and highly prolific time this last year recording and revealing new music right throughout summer. For NZ Music Month, the band revealed a new digital single for each week of May off Return to our Kōwhai, complemented by a brand new six track 12” EP SOUL LOVE TRIPPA, dropped in June.
Now, following on from their hugely popular Hagley Park performance at Electric Avenue in Otautahi earlier this year, the band decided the time was right to gather their favourite fellow musicians together, book some good venues and hit the road to celebrate the release of Return to our Kōwhai with their fans.
From their very first live appearance in 1993, to these forthcoming Aotearoa Spring Tour shows, passion, creativity, energy, driving bass beats and pure joy are the signature hallmarks of Salmonella Dub live. Don’t miss out on what promises to be yet another truly outstanding and immersive live concert experience from one of New Zealand’s most successful and beloved bands.
Due to the current Delta outbreak of COVID-19, Salmonella Dub have shifted the Auckland show dates from Friday 17th and Saturday 18th September to Friday 5th and Saturday 6th November.
