“It’s been two and a half years since I’ve toured with a real band so far and I can’t wait to finally perform for my fans all over Australia and New Zealand.“, dean lewis said. “I love connecting with my fans in person, and a lot of my new songs haven’t even been performed live for my Australasian fans yet! I find my songs work best when I’m personal, when I’m writing from my own experience, and it’s actually performing them live that the purpose of a song becomes fully realized – I can watch all of your faces to make sure I did my job, write songs that move people and sink into your hearts.
“The live stream events have definitely served their purpose, but I’m so grateful to have been able to get back on tour and live my dream night after night – I’ll never take those precious moments for granted again. Hearing my lyrics sung back never gets old!”

Only a handful of artists are lucky enough to achieve both critical acclaim and commercial success with a debut single.
dean lewis is part of this exclusive club thanks to his global hit “Waves” (2016), which landed key syncs in some hugely popular American TV series, including “Suits”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Riverdale” and the remake of ” Magnum PI”. ‘Be Alright’ (2018), Dean’s next single, had an even bigger impact, going Platinum+ in 22 countries and topping Australia’s ARIA Singles Chart for five weeks!
Dean has sold over 3.6 million albums and EPs worldwide and his music has attracted over 7 billion streams to date. He was welcomed into the Spotify Billions club when “Be Alright” surpassed one billion streams and has over 1.1 million YouTube subscribers and 1.3 million Tik Tok subscribers. Her most recent single “Falling Up” is certified ARIA Gold with over 68 million global streams. Lewis was an Apple Up Next artist in 2019 and played over 200 shows that year, including sold-out US and Australian tours as well as numerous shows and festival slots across Europe. That same year, Dean collaborated with Dutch superstar DJ/producer Martin Garrix on their hit single “Used To Love” and launched another career goal when he performed in the AFL Grand Final.
After releasing just one album – 2019’s chart-topping, multi-award-winning and Platinum-certified A Place We Knew – Dean has cultivated and captivated a huge global fan base. After ‘Half A Man’ was performed by a contestant on X factor in Denmark earlier this year, this track from his debut album was given a second life when it shot to the top of the Danish charts.
After Dean performed his latest single “Hurtless” on X factor Denmark’s finale, this passionate breakup song rose to No. 8 on the Danish charts and also topped the Swedish Heatseeker chart. “‘Hurtless’ immediately became one of those special connecting moments on live shows,” Dean said in an interview. Her 2022 debut single “Hurtless” was preceded by 2021’s “Looks Like Me” and “Falling Up” and continues to receive high rotation on radio stations around the world.
Be sure to be in the audience to help Dean celebrate his endless and continuing list of global accomplishments. There’s nothing better than watching one of Australia’s finest voices bring to life her universally relatable songs, which regularly flood our playlists.
Supporting Dean Lewis on his tours of Australia and New Zealand is
Blake Rose, which Dean personally selected after hearing his music on Spotify. Originally from Perth, Blake has had a great musical curiosity for as long as he can remember. One of the first instruments he ever picked up was the didgeridoo, followed by a guitar which he learned to play when he was 12 years old. It was a 3 month camping trip to Australia with her family that saw Rose really start to thrive. the songwriter he is today. As they drove from campsite to campsite, teenage Rose began writing his own songs in the back of his family car. Back home, he began experimenting with GarageBand and Pro Tools, falling in love with the idea of creating a song from start to finish. Taking to the streets of Perth to perform in the streets as a teenager, he quickly discovered his love for live performance. Blake Rose brings a depth to his music that is wise beyond his years. Imbued with a deep and picturesque lyricism, his songs are vibrant, powerful and deeply authentic.
