Don McGlashan Announces Second Auckland Show After 22 Sold-out Shows

September 19th 2023
Don McGlashan has sold out 22 shows across the country. Newly announced is a second Auckland show, as well as the rescheduled dates for Whangarei, Matakana and Auckland.

It's been a big month for Don McGlashan; following the APRA AMCOS announcement to honour and celebrate McGlashan when he is inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame at the 2023 APRA Silver Scroll Awards in October, a 22-date sold-out tour around Aotearoa… and then he got Covid! 


But you can’t keep a songwriter down for long - McGlashan is now fighting fit and affected shows have all been rescheduled. And due to popular demand - a second show for Auckland has been announced and is on sale now:


31.10.23 Auckland Q THEATRE - rescheduled from 02.09.23 SOLD OUT


03.11.23 MATAKANA- MEMORIAL HALL  - rescheduled from 01.09.23 SOLD OUT

09.11.23 WHANGAREI ONEONESIX - rescheduled from 31.08.23 -SOLD OUT


The Take It To The Bridge Tour showcases McGlashan's extensive songbook in hand-picked intimate venues throughout the country. 


Don is accompanied on tour by Anita Clark on violin, keys & backing vocals. Anita, as Motte, will also open for Don at all shows.


Don McGlashan’s Take It To The Bridge Tour will transport him to places he’s never played before, including Tairua and Glenorchy.  It’ll transport you too. Don’t miss it.  

Tickets for the Take It To The Bridge Tour are available from 


Don’s latest album, Bright November Morning quickly sold out completely after its 2022 release. A fancy vinyl reissue in translucent red and cassette has just landed in stores so best not to dilly dally this time round. A limited quantity will be available at shows.

As McGlashan’s fourth solo album and first #1 record, Bright November Morning is an essential addition to his remarkable output. It has all the glittering McGlashan touches in place: from the detail-perfect narratives of local life (the neighbours looking in when we take the curtains down, swimming and seeing Russian container ships on the horizon) to the strummy melodicism with detours into something noisier, and on to those welcome and welcoming choruses. The album was recorded in Lyttelton, Auckland and Vancouver, and is full of inspired playing from Shayne P Carter (Straitjacket Fits, Dimmer), Chris O’Connor (SJD, Phoenix Foundation) and James Duncan (SJD, Dimmer).
