The tour party will spend four days in New York for a Nova’s Red Room with US singer/songwriter and actress Miley Cyrus before concluding the tour in Sydney with ARIA Award-winning electronic music duo Peking Duk on Saturday 17 June.
Kent ‘Smallzy’ Small will lead a tour party of 50 consisting of partners, media and a team of Nova’s content producers for the tour.
Smallzy will also broadcast his national night show, Smallzy’s Surgery, from each international destination to share highlights of the exclusive performances, artist interviews and behind-the-scenes content both on air, on-line and on Nova’s social assets.

Tony Thomas, chief digital and marketing officer at NOVA Entertainment, said: “Nova’s Red Room Global Tour continues to set the standard for a multi-platform 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.”
Stephanie Loupelis, head of commercial partnerships at NOVA Entertainment, 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.”
