Elemeno P Announce More Gig Dates

Radio13

In three weeks time, one of Aotearoa’s most iconic rock groups, Elemeno P will take to the road on their upcoming NZ Spring Tour, visiting fans in every corner of the country on their most extensive run of dates in over a decade. Today the group have announced 3 new dates in Auckland and Whangarei. Elemeno P are responsible for writing some of our favourite kiwi anthems such as Fast Times in Tahoe, ‘Verona’, ‘Nirvana’, ‘Urban Getaway’ and more. The group’s debut album Love & Disrespect took flight in July 2002, hitting #1 on the NZ Album chart on release, and saw triple platinum album status; solidifying its place as a “classic kiwi album” on the shelves of almost every home from Cape Reinga to Gore.

The band’s striking 2005 follow up Trouble in Paradise, introduced New Zealand to more power-infused hits such as ‘11:57’ and ‘One Left Standing’. The album entered the NZ Album chart at #2 and went on to reach platinum status, like its predecessor. Following the success of the record, Elemeno P picked up Best Group at the 2006 NZ Music Awards and by this point had become a household name. This was followed by their self-titled album which peaked at #3 on the NZ Album chart in 2008 before the band took some timeout to focus on various solo projects. It carried their biggest live hit ‘Baby Come On’ and some of their b-side fan favourites like ‘Beverly Laurel’ and ‘Anna Don’t Let Go’.

In March 2017, the band regrouped for a one-off set at Jim Beam Homegrown, which saw a packed crowd that spanned generations (and miles) showing their remaining connection to kiwi fans of all ages. This was followed by a handful of sold out shows on the side, and in December, they joined the Jordan Luck Band on the road for a run of NZ dates, before helping lay the iconic Kings Arms to rest on its final Saturday in business.

Elemeno P are Dave Gibson, Lani Purkis, Scotty Pearson and Justyn Pilbrow, who are joined live and in studio by long-time musical wingman, Godfrey de Grut.
