Music News - Helmet announce NZ tour

Helmet announce NZ tour

28 November 2019 - 0 Comments

Seminal New York City rock band Helmet is celebrating their 30th anniversary with a headline tour, which will take them around the globe, including three shows in New Zealand next year.

Presented by Eccles Entertainment and Under The Radar, Helmet will perform at Studio: The Venue in Auckland on Friday, May 8; Meow in Wellington on Saturday, May 9 and Cassels Blue Smoke in Christchurch on Monday, May 11.

Tickets on sale on Tuesday, December 3 at 12.00pm from www.undertheradar.co.nz

To mark 30 years in the game, Helmet will perform a 30-song set each night of the tour. The band will be playing songs from across their catalogue of eight critically-acclaimed studio albums, as well as rarities from older EPs and singles - with the possibility of a few covers mixed in for good measure. There will be no opening acts on any of the shows.

Founder and frontman Page Hamilton reflects on the occasion: “The day John, Peter and I auditioned Henry is the day I consider to be the beginning of Helmet. The year was 1989 and I think the month was May. I love playing this music more than ever with my current bandmates, Kyle, Dan and Dave. To celebrate 30 years of recording and touring we decided to play 30 songs a night… We hope to see you all there.”
