Jazz legend Herbie Hancock to tour New Zealand and Australia in October

Living legend Herbie Hancock is set to light up stages across Australia and New Zealand in October, in his first visit since 2019, promising an electrifying evening from one of music’s most revered names.

With a career spanning seven decades and a staggering 14 GRAMMY awards, few artists have had more influence on modern music than Herbie Hancock. The creative force behind timeless classics like Cantaloupe IslandChameleon, and Rockit, Hancock’s genre-transcending appeal and unmistakable style have cemented his status as “today’s greatest living artist,” as extolled by The Washington Post. As the immortal Miles Davis said in his autobiography, “Herbie was the step after Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, and I haven’t heard anybody yet who has come after him.”  He has transcended limitations and genres while maintaining his unmistakable voice, amazing audiences across the globe.

This is an opportunity not to be missed – join this icon of modern music as he takes to the stage across New Zealand and Australia this October.
