Last month Wellington’s Electric Wire Hustle wrapped up their European tour with their final show at the UK’s Big Chill festival joining a lineup of heavyweight international talents including headline act Kanye West. EWH’s extensive European summer tour spanned 2 months, 20 shows and 10 countries. During this time they performed at some of Europe’s (& the world’s) largest festivals including Glastonbury(UK,) Barcelona’s Sonar Festival, Dour Festival in Belgium and many more. “It was an amazing tour in Europe. The band played better than ever and the audience responses were incredible. As sad as we were to leave, we’re looking forward to performing in New Zealand again and it will be great to bring our energy and experiences from this trip home.” says EWH drummer, Myele Manzanza.
The live band will perform 6 shows in New Zealand in September including The Raglan Yot Club on THIS Sunday the 4th of September.
This is the first time EWH have played in Raglan and they are looking forward to playing in a more intimate setting. “We’ve worked really hard in Europe. After the NZ shows we’re looking forward to hitting Australia again in October, spending some downtime with whanau after being on the road for so long and of course working on the next album!” adds band member Taay Ninh.
