Kiwi icons Th’ Dudes announce they’ll reunite for Th’ Bliss Tour, performing five dates across New Zealand in April 2020. Touring for the first time without founding member Ian Morris, Th’ Dudes - Peter Urlich, Dave Dobbyn, Lez White and Bruce Hambling - will be joined by Ian’s brother Rikki Morris, who was the original sound engineer for the group.
Originally formed as a high school band Krispie in 1975 and disbanding in 1980, Th’ Dudes had an incredible impact on the New Zealand music scene, with hits like ‘Be Mine Tonight’, ‘Bliss’, ‘That Look In Your Eye’, ‘Right First Time’ and ‘Walking in Light’. They won Top Group and Single of the Year for ‘Be Mine Tonight’ at the 1979 New Zealand Music Awards and stopped playing live in 1980, ahead of the release of their second album Where Are The Boys.
Fans who want to feel the ‘70s pub vibe can purchase a special ‘Bliss’ ticket to stand right up the front close to the band, while seated tickets are available for those who want to sit back and enjoy the show.
Pre-sale tickets on sale midday on Friday 15 November.
GP sale tickets on sale at midday on Monday 18 November.
It’s taken years to get the band together again, and no-one knows if it’ll happen again. Don’t miss Th’ Bliss Tour.
