Frontier Touring and Love Police are thrilled to announce a tour by one of the USA’s most remarkable songwriters: two time Grammy winner and master storyteller John Prine.
Prine was recently named Artist of the Year at the 17th annual Americana Honors & Awards, held at Nashville’s famous Ryman Auditorium, and yesterday landed a nomination for the USA’s prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The legendary Prine – long considered a “songwriter’s songwriter” – will perform three intimate dates with his full band in New Zealand in February/March 2019, his first shows in New Zealand since 1993!
For this special tour, Frontier Touring has teamed up for the very first time with Americana lovers Love Police, responsible for bringing some of the biggest names of the genre down under for two decades now.
The list of performers who’ve recorded from Prine’s extensive catalogue, or appeared alongside him on his many albums, reads like a who’s who of the greats: Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, Iris Dement, Dan Auerbach, Tom Petty, the Everly Brothers, John Denver, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris, Carly Simon, Ben Harper, Lucinda Williams, Norah Jones, Bette Midler, and more.
