“I’ve been touring Australia and New Zealand for 20 years now, and the fact that you all keep coming to my shows makes me feel like the happiest man alive,” says Michael Buble. “I absolutely love performing live, being on stage is complete and pure enjoyment for me. It is a great pleasure and honor for me to be able to show up and be made to feel so welcome.”
Paul Dainty, President and CEO of TEG DAINTY, said“New Zealand fans who are lucky enough to have seen Michael Bublé on previous tours already know that he is the best performer. It is certainly a sight to behold as every member of Michael’s sold-out arena crowd hangs from his every word, creating memorable moments for all of us to cherish.”
New Zealand has embraced this much-loved Canadian artist from the start, with three number one albums in New Zealand, including 2013’s “To Be Loved”, 2011’s “Christmas” and 2003’s “Michael Bublé”, and eight top five album . His ‘Christmas’ album has been certified 11 x Platinum in New Zealand! This Canadian singer is known for his hit singles ‘Everything’, ‘Home’, ‘Sway’, ‘Haven’t Met You Yet’, ‘It’s A Beautiful Day’ and ‘Close Your Eyes’. Over the course of his extraordinary career, Bublé has sold more than 75 million albums, won four Grammy Awards and completed multiple sold-out world tours.
In January 2022, Bublé gifted us an original song he wrote, ‘I’ll Never Not Love You’, ushering in a new era with this lead single from his first new album release in three years, ‘Higher’. And thanks to this song’s accompanying music video — a collage of Bublé and his real-life wife and muse, Luisana Lopilato, lovingly recreating some of the most romantic scenes in movie history (including “Titanic,” “The Notebook,” and “Love Actually.” ) – the world has fallen in love with it all over again! At the end of this cutscene, Luisana appears, clearly pregnant, and the happy couple recently welcomed the fourth member of their family, a baby girl named Cielo, to add to their existing brood of sons Noah and Elias, plus daughter Vida.
For Valentine’s Day earlier this year, Bublé released a heartfelt version of Sir Paul McCartney’s ‘My Valentine’ (also produced by McCartney) – a second glorious taste of his highly anticipated upcoming 11th studio album.
From creating “Higher,” Bublé said:
“I surrounded myself with people who are so much more talented than me, which obviously rubbed off.
When you bring together 40 of the most amazing musicians in the world – none of whom have been able to jam or even play in the same room with other muso’s in the last 15 months – there will be joyful vibes everywhere. And yes, there was a lot of laughter and crying in my underwear in my home studio when one of these songs hit the sweet spot and sounded exactly the way I heard it in my head. I can honestly say I’ve never felt so excited after finishing an album.”
“Higher” also features more self-penned original Bublé songs plus revived standards, including a duet with Willie Nelson (“Crazy”), Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” and the Sam Cooke classic “Bring It On Home To Me’.
In performance, Bublé is unimaginably charismatic and his banter between songs, often categorized by candid banter, never disappoints. You leave ‘Feeling Good’ and that is promised. The audience can expect an evening they will never forget. Be sure to secure your tickets. The demand for a live dose of Bublé has never been ‘Higher’.
