Frontier Touring is thrilled to announce the debut Australian and New Zealand headline tour of one of the UK’s hottest rising talents: Maisie Peters. The prodigious 21-year-old will hit our shores this week and is set to deliver electrifying performances across seven intimate headline shows. 

With her witty and observational style, the West Sussex-born star has earned a whopping 845 million streams to date worldwide, 37 million of those in Australia (her fifth-largest streaming territory). It’s an impressive start for the arresting singer-songwriter, who began writing tracks when she was just 12 years old, was busking on the streets on Brighton by 2017, then headlining UK venues such as Shepherd’s Bush Empire a mere two years later.

Maisie Peters’ latest single, the recently released Not Another Rockstar, was immediately added to NOVA National Nights and marks her hottest track on radio to date. It follows on from a series of fan-focused releases that dropped mid-year: ‘Cate’s Brother’, ‘Blonde’ and ‘Good Enough’ all saw Peters exploring different stages of relationships with her intimate but typically relatable tact. 

Peters’ innate gift for storytelling, relatable, ‘diary-entry’ songs have seen the likes of Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers and Sam Smith calling themselves fans, joining millions of others around the globe who’re quickly discovering Maisie Peters is one of a kind and rising fast!

Don’t miss this special, intimate, headline show in Byron this week, it may be your only chance to see the UK singer in venues this size. 

Fall in love with Maisie Peters.

This gig starts at 7.30pm, Thursday, at The Northern, with support from Navvy. Tickets from: frnter.co/MP23BYR
