Drax Project add second Auckland show
Tickets to Drax Project at the Powerstation in Auckland sold out in less than 10 minutes when they went on sale earlier this week. Now due to overwhelming demand, the phenomenal four-piece is adding a second show on Saturday, May 12.
The Saturday show will be licensed, with a allocation of all-ages; while the Friday, May 11 show remains R18.
Drax Project drew massive crowds and praise from concert-goers and critics alike with their mind-blowing opening slots for Ed Sheeran at Mt Smart last month.
Presented by ZM and Eccles Entertainment, the band’s two Powerstation shows follow on from their chart-topping smash hit ‘Woke Up Late’, which has amassed 6.3 million streams on Spotify. The song has also spent weeks on Top 40 radio in New Zealand, reaching #1 in the radio pop charts and #2 all airplay - an amazing feat for a local act. The single has also been certified Platinum.
Drax Project started life as a drums and sax busking duo - Shaan Singh and Matt Beachen - making a name for themselves in Wellington with their busking sessions on Courtney Place. They soon grew into a four-piece enlisting Sam Thomson on bass and Ben O’Leary on guitar.
Their debut EP T/W/OO was released in April 2016, followed by a LIVE COVERS EP in 2017. Then came the breakthrough hit ‘Woke Up Late’ at the end of 2017.
They have also just released ‘Light’ - a collaboration with top 40 rapper Famous Dex - on US label 300.
Don’t miss out on tickets to see one of New Zealand’s most exciting live acts when tickets to their second show go on sale Tuesday April 24 at 9am.
