The Feelers & Stellar*

  • Thursday 12 December 2019


From busking on street corners to becoming pioneers of the kiwi music industry THE FEELERS are thrilled to play Auckland's Powerstation this summer; joined by iconic NZ band stellar* who celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album MIX.


Schoolboy friends James Reid and Hamish Gee started a legacy that has spawned some of the greatest songs written in New Zealand. They will be bringing their anthems to New Zealanders alongside their mates stellar* in a nostalgic reunion of two illustrious NZ bands. THE FEELERS will also be dropping a new single appropriately titled SUMMER RIDE.

Band member Hamish Gee states, “The band can't wait to get back on the road. It's been a few years since we've played a large summer tour and we're excited to be test driving a couple of new tracks, as well as smashing out all our favorite hits from the past two decades. So stoked to be playing alongside our great mates stellar*”.

With seven Top 20 hits under their belts, Boh Runga and the stellar* boys are promising a setlist to match the tour’s “All The Hits” tag. Says Boh, “This is going to be a tour to remember! Summer will be kicking in, we’re celebrating the 20th Anniversary of our Mix album, the band is sounding better than ever, and we get to have fun all over Aotearoa with our old pals The Feelers. Bring it on!”

Playing with THE FEELERS is guitarist Andy Lynch (Zed) and bass players Clint Harris (Opshop) or Dave Gent (The Exponents).

THE FEELERS have amassed some remarkable statistics including a quarter of a million album sales, five multi-platinum albums, five number one albums, seven number one singles, and they remain the largest selling NZ band ever signed by Warner Music NZ in their 48-year history. They have also accumulated 5 NZ Music Awards, 3 APRA most played song of the year awards and more radio airplay than any other New Zealand artist or band since radio stats began in 1999.

Some of the many hits they promise to play at the upcoming gigs include, Pressure Man, Venus, Communicate, Larger Than Life, One World, Astronaut and of course the 2011 Rugby World Cup song Right Here, Right Now, a cover of the Jesus Jones hit song.

stellar* still features the same line-up that released their first single on Sony Music NZ, 'What You Do (Bastard)', 21 years ago. That’s Boh Runga (vocals, guitar), Andrew Maclaren (drums, programming), Kurt Shanks (bass) and Chris van de Geer(guitar).

With the band celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their Mix album – expect to hear live many favourites from that album - including Violent, Part Of Me, Every Girl, Undone and more.
