UPDATE: The Beths have added several new shows to their New Zealand tour to meet demand.

The Beths are finishing their Expert in a Dying Field album cycle in style with a homecoming tour.

The power-pop band will perform in Aotearoa for the first time in almost two years this September, stopping in Auckland, Christchurch, and Wellington (see full dates below).

“It’s been way too long! Nearly 2 years?? Here are a handful of Aotearoa shows to finish Expert in a Dying Field’s journey amongst friends and whanau,” the band wrote on social media today.

The tour announcement follows a big night for The Beths: they were winners at the 2024 Aotearoa Music Awards in Auckland on Thursday night, taking home the awards for Album of the Year and Best Group. It’s the band’s second Album of the Year win and third Best Group triumph.

The Beths’ Elizabeth Stokes shared, “We are constantly inspired by the amount of incredible, world-class work being made by artists from our small but mighty piece of the world. Congratulations to everyone! Thanks Ben and Tristan for representing with grace and poise. I wish Jono and I were there to celebrate. Proud to be a Beth today!”

Expert in a Dying Field has been their most successful album to date, earning the band a nomination for the 2023 APRA Silver Scroll Award. The album cycle has seen the Auckland four-piece tour consistently across North America, Australia, the UK, and Europe, including supporting the likes of The National, Death Cab for Cutie, and The Postal Service.

At the 2023 Panhead Rolling Stone Aotearoa Awards, the band won the prestigious Rolling Stone Global Award, seeing off strong competition from Six60, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, BENEE, and more acclaimed Kiwi artists.

Tickets to The Beths’ Aotearoa tour go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, June 5h at 10am NZST via the band’s official website. Fans can also sign up for the pre-sale here.
