After a prolonged Californian lockdown, Greg Johnson is over the moon to be returning home for his nationwide tour, Time Is A Traveller, which coincides with the release of his brand-new album, Tilt Your Interior.
For his first New Zealand tour since 2019, Greg Johnson joins forces with his legendary band Ben King, Wayne Bell and Mark Hughes. Special guest Dianne Swann will open the shows, celebrating the release of her new album The War On Peace of Mind.
“My quarantine is booked and I’m great at holing up in Hotel rooms so once they set me free, I’ll be rearing to go with my best line-up of songs and musicians since the end of the Gulf War.” Says Johnson.
“After a gloomy year of lockdown and seclusion in LA, and a deep aversion to Zoom concerts, real, interactive, cozy live shows feel more vital than ever, and I have many stories to tell. It’s an understatement to say I’m excited to be touring again and playing some of my favourite New Zealand towns and venues, as well as some I haven’t been to in more than twenty years.”
At the shows, Greg Johnson fans can look forward to thirty years of great hits including Isabelle, Don’t Wait Another Day, Liberty, Save Yourself, It’s Been So Long, Now the Sun is Out, Looking Out On Monday, I Got Opinions, Swagger and more.
Accolades include two Tui NZ Music Awards, eight top 20 albums and a coveted Silver Scroll, for Liberty.
Of his new album, Tilt Your Interior, Johnson says: “I have waited 5 years to make this record and despite the pandemic I’ve pulled together some amazing players from around the world, including my pals Ted Brown and Ben King. Technology made this album possible but some intense personal events the last few years have given the songs a little extra gravitas I think, and I am pretty thrilled how it sounds.
My box-set subscribers have been receiving advance singles from the new album, and their feedback and support has been really inspiring. Once again I have my loyal fanbase to thank for these times and hopefully I’m rewarding them with some nice tunes.” Press Release: Embargoed until Wednesday 7 April, 7.30am NZ
