Kiwi pop rock outfit Zed are reuniting to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album Silencer with two shows in Auckland and Christchurch this September.

After bursting on to the scene in 1999, the multi-platinum selling four-piece enjoyed two decades of number one hits including Glorafilia, Renegade Fighter and Oh! Daisy, and played Arena tours through Australasia supporting Coldplay and Robbie Williams, before deciding to take an extended break in 2005.

Now Nathan King (guitar/vocals), Ben Campbell (bass), Andy Lynch (guitarist) and Adrian Palmer (drums) are back to mark their 20-year milestone with two intimate shows at Christchurch's Blue Smoke on September 21, and Auckland's Galatos on September 28.

"It's nice to get back together, have a barbecue or two, reminisce a bit, and play some of the old songs," says Campbell. "It reaffirms how strong those relationships are and what the experiences we went through mean to all of us."

Listen to the audio above as Zed join Mike Hosking in studio.
