B.Dolan & Sage Francis - Heart Failure

Sage Francis Oct 2010 NZ Tour

The reigning agent provocateur of hip hop, Sage Francis, brings his 'Li(f)e Abroad' tour to NZ this October with new material from his electrifying fourth album, Li(f)e.

Sage Francis has never been afraid to provoke. As a result he is a sometimes polarizing, increasingly important figure in modern music. Adored by many, reviled by a few but never ignored and always essential, he has developed into a fearless social critic.

Like so many great songwriters before, he uses his gifted wordplay for a much greater good, creating vivid narratives and heartfelt confessionals which both instigate and inspire. With his new album, Li(f)e, he has delivered a masterfully original work. The record features notable French composer Yann Tierson, along with musicians from bands such as Califone, Sparklehorse, Calexico, Grandaddy, Death Cab for Cutie and Buck 65.

Joining Sage Francis for all shows will be his Strange Famous Records label mate, B. Dolan. This will be Dolan’s first venture to NZ, where he will not only play main support but will also collaborate with Sage on several songs throughout the evening
