Revealed: 2017 Nova Red Room Global Tour featuring Miley Cyrus, Chainsmokers and more

Tour itinerary: Sydney – Los Angeles – Rhode Island – Las Vegas – New York – Sydney

Featuring the world’s biggest artists, Nova’s Red Room Global Tour will head to four American cities for a 12-day tour, concluding in Sydney, with exclusive performances by The Chainsmokers, Miley Cyrus and Peking Duk, along with unique experiences with Katy Perry and Calvin Harris.

Tony Thomas, Nova Entertainment’s chief digital and marketing officer, said, “Nova’s Red Room Global Tour continues to set the standard for a multiplatform music and travel brand that will give our listeners and partners more opportunities and experiences than ever before. With five amazing artists, across five major cities in two weeks, this will be one of the biggest money-can’t-buy experiences Nova has ever delivered, and something our listeners and partners won’t forget for a long time.”

For the first time Mazda Australia is partnering with Nova’s Global Red Room Tour 2017 to help celebrate Mazda3’s 40th Anniversary in Australia.

Qantas will be the exclusive airline partner of Nova’s Red Room Global Tour for the fourth consecutive year, flying winners on board its A380 aircraft between Sydney and Los Angeles.

Nova Entertainment’s long term-partner The Star and Marquee The Star Sydney have returned as accommodation and venue partner, with the tour’s final show held on site on 17 June.

Stephanie Loupelis, Nova Entertainment head of commercial partnerships, said, “Mazda Australia, their media agency OMD and 1Mazda @ CHE Proximity are experienced in the benefits of investing in marquee partnerships of scale, so in many ways they’re the ideal brand partners to align with the tour. They’ve trusted our team to create the most ambitious tour yet and just as importantly, they’ve trusted our proven credentials in this space to deliver a safe and effective environment for the Mazda3 brand to connect with the Nova audience.”
