We are pleased to announce that Ivy Blue frontman James Brodie will be hitting the road for the first time since 2019 on his first ever solo theatre tour.

The Becoming Brodie Tour will kick off in Palmerston North in August before making its way to select cities in New Zealand and Australia through to early November, performing stripped down versions of his back-catalogue with Ivy Blue and renditions of his new material taken off his debut solo album Becoming (out June 24) while sharing stories about growing up with Autism and ADHD in a new theatrical production. As you might have guessed, these shows will primarily be taking place in small to mid sized theatres instead of the more intimate venues James has performed at in recent years with Ivy Blue, bringing James back to his theatrical roots formed as a member of the ACTA acting group at the Future Te Aroha Centre where James's performing career (and these stories) began over 20 years ago.

And with thanks to Creative Communities Matamata-Piako; this tour will also see James performing his first full-length shows in Morrinsville, Matamata, and his hometown of Te Aroha in over a decade. Exact dates and logistics for these shows are still being finalized and details for these shows will be confirmed closer to the time.
