Shaun Kirk - Holding Onto Hope Tour

Shaun Kirk - Holding Onto Hope Tour

Following his recent sell out ‘Worth the Weight’ tour and mammoth 8 month ‘Holding onto Hope’ tour across his homeland of Australia, alt blues/soul singer- songwriter and troubadour Shaun Kirk is happy to announce he’s bringing the ‘Holding Onto Hope’ tour across the ditch to New Zealand this February.

Inspired by the tumultuous events of 2020, his latest single ‘Holding Onto Hope’ dropped on Thursday 8th July last year, marking the 12 month anniversary of the commencement of Shaun’s home city’s (Melbourne, Australia) infamous 112 day lockdown; a time he describes as “one of the most confronting and challenging times of my life.” The tune has since been capturing hearts all across the globe with
it’s message of aspiration and optimism in a world that has felt absent of it in recent times.

Kirk’s highly entertaining world class live show, which features the talented multi- instrumentalist on vocals, guitar, drums and harmonica, was recently described by 3 time Grammy Award Winner Fantastic Negrito as “One of the best one man shows I’ve ever seen!” and is not to be missed by any keen music enthusiast.

Tickets to shows are limited, on sale now at and predicted to sell fast!
