The tour broke merchandise records in over 50 venues in Australia, North and South America and Europe, and the final night of the concert series – at The Forum – tallied more than 17,000 paid tickets and beat the record for most paid tickets for a single show since the venue reopened in 2014.
After finishing the final show, the ‘Kiwi’ singer revealed his plans to write some new music.
He wrote on Instagram earlier this week: “Kissy. Thank you for coming out to see us, it has been a pleasure playing for you all. I’m off to write some more music and I hope I’ll be seeing you again very soon. Thank you to my band, the crew, and all of you for making this tour so wonderful. Treat people with kindness. Goodbye for now. I love you all. (sic)”
