Patti Smith & Her Band will be touring to New Zealand this April 2020 after her Australian pitstop!
The "Punk Poet Laureate" was famous for her musical works, one includes an iconic song co-written by Bruce Springsteen, 'Because the Night' that peaked at number 13 on the Billboard chart in 1978. She was also inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame in 2007 and won the National Book Award for her memoir, Just Kids, three years later and was ranked 47th in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Artists list that year.
Just two years ago, the band had taken home the Helpmann Award for Best International Contemporary Concert.
Her 1975 debut album, Horses, kicked started her long musical career that "resonates even greater today and has inspired countless others along the way." The album had achieved the highest recognitions over the years and have often been noted as one of the all-time best records.
We can't wait to see her rock out in Christchurch and Auckland this April 2020.
