Summer Thieves On Tour 
Ria Hall w/ the NZSO
2022 APRA Silver Scroll Finalists Announced

After one of their biggest summers yet, Aotearoa-based indie/rock/pop outfit Summer Thieves are set to hit the road this September for a massive spring tour across the country. This run of shows will be the band’s first NZ tour in over two years, and will see them performing tracks from their upcoming new album for the first time.

Starting in Northland’s Whangārei, the tour will see the band bringing the party and electric live set across all the major regions in the North & South Island before finishing up in Queenstown. 

Looking to strike while the iron is hot, late-2022 will see the release of their next album, written and recorded over the past 12 months across NZ. This tour will be the first chance for fans to catch this new material before it is released.
