New dates: Fri 28 & Sat 29 Apr 2023, Barbican Hall, 8pm

(Postponed from 30 & 31 Mar 2022)

Tickets £20 – £25 plus booking fee

New Zealand singer-songwriter Aldous Harding, alongside her band, makes her Barbican debut in April 2023. The two shows will feature material from her four studio albums to date. 

Harding, whose music has been described as ‘disquietingly beautiful and unsettling as her image’ by the Guardian, drew critical acclaim for the gothic indie folk style on her eponymous self-titled 2014 debut album.

Her three follow-up albums – 2017’s Party, 2019's Designer and 2022’s Warm Chris – were released on British independent label 4AD. All records were co-produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse). John Parish also produced Harding’s track Old Peel – known and loved by fans as the set-closer at her most recent live shows, which was released in July 2021.

Aldous Harding was awarded a prestigious Silver Scroll Award for The Barrel (the New Zealand equivalent of the Ivor Novellos) and was nominated in the Solo Artist category in 2020’s Q Awards. Designer also made the top 5 in Mojo's 2019 Best Albums of the Year.

Touring extensively pre-pandemic, Harding is renowned for the captivating state of possession she occupies in live performances, winning over audiences across the world.

Produced by the Barbican in association with Bird On The Wire

Dear friends,
We are sorry to announce that we are going to have to reschedule our 2022 European and UK dates to 2023. 
Despite the current COVID-19 situation easing, we are still facing a degree of uncertainty that will make touring in March / April 2022 difficult for us. 
All 2022 tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled shows in 2023. If you are unable to attend a rescheduled show then please contact your ticketing agency for refunds.
Till then
