Kiwi singer/songwriter Jan Hellriegel will join Greg Johnson‘s 5 date New Zealand mini-tour. Johnson, who is originally from New Zealand, but moved to California in 2002, released his most recent album, EXIT, in 2012.
- 22 March – The Paddington – Parnell
- 23 March – Black Barn – Napier
- 28 March – Old Library Arts Centre – Whangarei
- 31 March – The Riverhead (Marquee)
- 1 April – Bodega – Wellington
One could be optimistic and suggest that this might lead to Hellriegel’s coming to perform in the United States, although thus far there is no indication of that happening.
Others performing will be Ben King, Lisa Crawley, Mark Hughes, and Kurt Shanks.
LOST SONGS, an album of 18 previously unreleased songs by Hellriegel is now available for pre-order on Hellriegel’s website. The first single from the album, VENUS IS DEAD, has already been released in New Zealand. The album pre-order includes immediate download of five tracks. Album release date is 1 May 2013.
