The concert on Saturday, February 21 will be the band’s only New Zealand show this coming summer. Promoters are encouraging fans from around the country to make their plans to come to Auckland now.

The show will be all-ages and feature support from locals Drax Project – who've just finished a European tour with one of the biggest pop stars in the world right now, Sons of Zion, Onehunga's very own SWIDT and IllBaz.

This announcement comes after a hugely successful summer 2017/18, which saw the group perform to over 40,000 fans around NZ.

The band's singer Matiu Walters says playing an iconic venue like Western Springs is a huge deal for the band and they’re in full planning mode to make it an amazing experience.

“We’re going to be bringing some new music to the concert, as well as everyone’s favourite songs and we’re also focusing on how we can make the stage show really special. We’re stoked that so many of our favourite acts are going to be playing the show with us.”
