The Veronicas w/ special guests METRO STATION, P MONEY, and MIDNIGHT YOUTH.
The Frontier Touring Company is pleased to confirm the arrival of The Veronicas to NZ for The Edge SummerJam 2009. After months of touring abroad Australia’s favourite twins will grace NZ fans for the very first time in a string of shows in February ’09.
Fans in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin will be treated to the ‘Revenge Is Sweeter’ tour as part of The Edge SummerJam 2009. Special guests at all shows will be ‘Shake It’ superstars Metro Station and NZ’s own P Money and Midnight Youth.
The past 12 months for The Veronicas have been the most frenetic of their lives. Their versatility has been on display as they’ve launched a clothing line, a series of webisodes, toured with the Jonas Brothers, Hanson and Natasha Beddingfield across America.
Newest album ‘Hook Me Up’ is making massive waves in New Zealand with monster hits ‘Take Me On The Floor’ and ‘This Love’ charging up the pop charts into Top 5 positions!
After thrilling fans on sold out worldwide tours all year, Metro Station are set to thrill New Zealand in support of their debut self-titled record. You’ll have the opportunity to take part as they support The Veronicas on all New Zealand show dates. With rock star moves and teen anthems ‘Shake It’ and ‘Kelsey’, Metro Station will help raise the roof at these shows.
P Money (Peter Wadams) is best known as New Zealand’s hottest DJ. After collaborations on Scribe’s massive hit ‘Not Many’, releasing his own hugely anticipated debut album ‘Big Things’, then following up with second album ‘Magic City’ he is now in the studio working on his third full length album, due for release in 2009. The first single, ‘Everything’ featuring Vince Harder, is already proving a smash hit, having been # 1 on the NZ Singles Chart for two weeks and added to radio in NZ and Australia. Winner of ‘Producer Of the Year’ award in 2004 for Scribe’s album ‘The Crusader’, P Money is a big name player who will be sure to get your feet moving and your hands up in the air at The Edge SummerJam 2009.
Newcomers Midnight Youth have truly hit the ground running. Initially coming together in 2006 after the roots of the band honed their skills in the Rockquest series of shows, the band rapidly utilized the experience gained from the New Zealand high school competition and channelled the essence of their tightly-wound live performance into the debut single ‘Supernatural’. Unusually for an unsigned band, the song attained national airplay on NZ’s rock and pop stations; and even more unusually, inspired a house remix from Tim Phinn locally, and a further electro remix by Melbourne-based producers Vandalism, released on Australian label Central Station. Debut official single ‘The Letter’ is at radio now and Midnight Youth are set to make a huge impression in the upcoming months.
