Boy & Bear

  • Saturday 3 October 2020

Due to recent announcements by the New Zealand Government, Boy & Bear’s Suck on light tour will no longer be going ahead.

Please see statement below from the band:

“After lots of agonising, we've made the tough decision to cancel the New Zealand leg of our Suck On Light Tour. Covid-19 and the surrounding uncertainty and restrictions in Australia, plus uncertainty around travel allowances to get to you in NZ have created significant challenges rendering us unable to deliver the tour we intended for 2020.

We want to say an extra-special thank you to everyone who held on to their ticket this long for shows that now won’t go ahead. We know money has been tight for many people during this time, so it has been utterly heart-warming to see the amount of people who chose to hang onto their ticket to see us. We are beyond grateful for your support.

We recognise that to many people, these cancellations will be disappointing, as they are to us. We have been longing to get back to NZ where we have been so well supported since the early days of our career. Please know that we will be working hard towards a plan where we can get back out there and do what we love sooner rather than later.

Thanks so much for sticking with us through this crazy time. Much love, from Dave, Killian, Symes, Tim and Jon.”

All ticket holders will receive a refund.

Ticket agents will contact all ticket holders via email with information regarding the refund process.

We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.


Australian indie-folk band Boy & Bear make their glorious and highly-anticipated return to New Zealand in support of their latest album, Suck on Light. 

After the most tumultuous period of their lives both personally and professionally, Boy & Bear are back with another national tour.

The band’s position in the music industry was firmly cemented in 2011 after their debut album Moonfire reached platinum, won Boy & Bear five ARIA awards and saw three songs make it to triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2011. Two years later came the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album Harlequin Dream, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, spent five consecutive weeks in the top 10 and has since gone Platinum. 

In October 2015 Boy & Bear put out Limit Of Love, debuting at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, making it their second consecutive number one debut. Following the release of their newest album Suck on Light, the band embarked on a massive North American tour, playing packed theatres across the US and Canada. Having now returned home, the boys are excited to share their new album with audiences across Australia and NZ in 2020.

Due to the recent announcement by the New Zealand Government recommending all public gatherings over 500 people not to proceed, Boy & Bear’s tour has been rescheduled:

Sat 3 Oct – Auckland, Powerstation (Previously Fri 17 April)

All tickets will be remain valid for the rescheduled show without need for exchange, please just make note of the new date and venue.
