Mai FM and Loop are stoked to present L.A.B this June/July for two special arena shows!
Fresh from a massive tour of Australia over two years in the making, L.A.B return home for two special winter arena shows. These will be audiences’ only opportunities to catch L.A.B live this winter, bringing their epic live show to two of NZ’s premier Arenas.
After both Wellington & Hamilton shows sold out in 2021, these shows are expected to do the same!
Friday June 24
L.A.B with support from JessB
Saturday July 2
L.A.B with support from JessB & Masaya
Globox Arena (formerly Claudelands Arena)
Fast becoming a winter tradition, these two special performances will see L.A.B’s stadium-sized show rolled into more intimate venues, while maintaining the energy that has seen them become one of NZ’s best live acts.
Support for these shows will come from JessB & Mara TK in Wellington, and JessB & Masaya in Hamilton.
2022 has again seen the band maintain their reputation as one of NZ”s hardest-working acts. December 2021 saw them not only release their fifth album in five years, but also take home Album of the Year, Single of the Year, Best Group & Best Roots Artist at the Aotearoa Music Awards. These accolades saw the band become the first act since Lorde to win both Single & Album of the Year in the same year.
March saw their debut Australian festival performance, closing out the first night at
WOMADelaide for their first Australian show in over two years. April saw their long-awaited headline tour take over Australia, with extra shows added & capacities increased to meet demands in all cities. The tour was punctuated by a marquee slot at the legendary Byron Bay Bluesfest, performing to over 70,000 Austrlaians in just over a month.
I think it's safe to say... we bloody love L.A.B!
Ready to return to home audiences, these two shows will see the band run through tracks from their ever-increasing back catalogue, including the latest single ‘Real Ones’.
