New York City's Postmodern Jukebox hits NZ

The time-twisting 'Life in the Past Lane' tour comes to Rotorua in August

New York City’s pop-jazz sensation, Postmodern Jukebox, are returning to New Zealand. Bringing their innovative twist on classic sounds, performing ‘today's hits yesterday’, on an unforgettable six-date run throughout August 2023.

“Times change and trends come and go, but - like a 1961 Jaguar XK-E - the classic sounds of the past only appreciate with age. Whether you're a vinyl aficionado or a TikTok fashionista, catch a ride with us for an unforgettable trip through 100 years of timeless music.” – Scott Bradlee

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox's ‘Life In The Past Lane’ Concert Tour is a celebration of the greatest 20th-century musical genres, uniquely fused with the recognisable hits of our own modern era, for the perfect patina of vintage and modern. This musical time machine will take the audience on an extraordinary journey through bygone music eras! Commencing in August 2023, the ‘Life In The Past Lane’ tour is the latest tour from Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox, who are currently thrilling American audiences up and down their home country. Next year, they will be delighting New Zealand cities once more, following a wildly popular 2022 tour.

PMJ’s six-date tour will kick off in Auckland on August 16, and then make stops in Rotorua on August 18, Hamilton, Wellington and Dunedin, before winding up in Christchurch on August 23.

As always with PMJ’s outstanding live performances, ‘Life In The Past Lane’ will feature an ensemble filled to the brim with some of today's most exciting vocalists, instrumentalists, and tap dancers. Surprise special guests often join the core line-up, ensuring each concert experience is tremendously incomparable – making for an electrifying live music experience, of this and any other time period.
