Iconic Kiwi band Th’ Dudes announce new dates for Th’ Bliss Tour, with the nine-date tour now scheduled to kick off in Wellington on 13 November.
The newest inductees to the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame were due to hit the road for the first time in more than a decade this month, Th' Dudes first tour without founding member Ian Morris, with Ian’s brother Rikki on guitars and backing vocals for the tour.
“We’ll be back with the same reunion, same songs, same Lez high kicks. And all with a greater sense of being alive & healthy,” says Dave Dobbyn.
“In the meantime, everyone stay safe and do what Dr Ashley Bloomfield tells you.”
