China's biggest and boldest rock band Second Hand Rose will be heading Down Under this month to perform Lantern Festivals in Auckland and Christchurch, New Zealand.

"...when the Tom Waits-like opening to 'Picking A Flower' gave way to its folksy chorus, with Liang Long's distinctively Chinese croon, I found myself singing along with everyone else; I knew the melody even though I'd heard it just once before. When the song morphed into a Pink Floyd psychedelic space riff, only to devolve into Peking opera instrumentals and, finally, to nineties-style hard rock, the appeal of this bonkers mixture became clear: it's a tour of the sounds that constitute an urban, internet-savvy, millennial Chinese youth." - The New Yorker describes SHR's last year's show in Webster Hall, New York City.
