Irish singer Wallis Bird’s debut NZ gig
Award-winning Irish singer Wallis Bird will perform in New Zealand for the very first time on March 22nd at the Tuning Fork.
The Wexford-born artist cut her teeth as a teenager playing cover gigs in pubs, dealing with drunken hecklers by way of cheeky comebacks and good-natured banter. Bird moved to Germany in 2005 and self-released the single Blossoms in the Street, which spent 20 weeks in the airplay charts. It grabbed the attention of Island Records who signed her almost on the spot.
Her debut album hit the Top 5 UK digital album charts. Over her next three records she continued to chart in various European countries and toured constantly, headlining over 700 shows in the past 8 years, with over 30,000 people attending her last album release tour.
Tickets from $35. See Ticketmaster for more details.
