Benee postpones nationwide regional tour due to 'personal circumstances'

  • 02/08/2021

Benee has announced she's postponing her nationwide tour around the regions of New Zealand "due to personal circumstances". 

The 'Supalonely' singer shared the news on Instagram, telling fans: "Kia ora e te whanau. I'm so sorry that I need to reschedule my regional shows, I was really looking forward to seeing you. Keep your eyes peeled for the new dates which we will be announcing soon." 

"Sorry again luv all of u [sic]," she added. 

A statement from Live Nation advised that personal reasons were behind the postponement, but did not elaborate further. 

The 21-year-old's eight-date tour was supposed to kick off in New Plymouth on Friday, but will now take place early next year instead. 

"We are working on the new dates (for the same cities) as we speak but we are not yet in a position to announce the new dates," Live Nation said. 

"So ticketholders please keep hold of your tickets - all tickets purchased for the original date will remain valid for the rescheduled dates without need for exchange once announced.

"We apologise for any inconvenience resulting from this change of arrangements. For any further ticket enquiries, please contact your point of purchase." 

The multi-Aotearoa Music Award winner sold out Auckland's Spark Arena twice last year, but this time was set to headline at lesser-known venues in places like Nelson, Porirua, Invercargill and Palmerston North. 

Earlier this year, Benee released her debut album Hey U X, and has seen billions of streams on music platforms with hits like 'Supalonely', 'Glitter' and 'Soaked'. 

She also performed on a string of major US talk shows including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen Degeneres Show and Late Night With Seth Meyers
