David Gray – White Ladder: The 20th Anniversary Tour
Experience one of the best-selling albums in British music history live at Wellington’s TSB Arena
English folk singer-songwriter David Gray is bringing his 20th anniversary celebration tour of his best-selling album White Ladder to New Zealand this November.
With hit songs like ‘Babylon’, ‘Please Forgive Me’ and ‘Sail Away’, White Ladder shot Gray to global fame. The album stayed on the UK charts for almost three full years. Having sold 7 million copies worldwide, the album remains in the top 30 best-selling British albums of all time, is the best-selling album ever in Ireland, and three times platinum in New Zealand.
Beginning in Auckland, the landmark tour will head to Spark Arena on Saturday 28 November, Wellington’s TSB Arena on Sunday 29 November and Christchurch’s Horncastle Arena on Tuesday 1 December. The show will feature the full song list from White Ladder as well as some of Gray’s other greatest hits from his ten studio albums.
Speaking earlier in 2020 about the anniversary tour, Gray said, “What happened with White Ladder involved more than music. It was a sort of heart and soul moment of total surrender for everybody involved, for me and the audience. That was it. It doesn't get any better than that.”
