Vince Staples to perform headline shows in Wellington & Auckland

2016 has been hectic for Vince Staples. The streetwise social commentator has given show-stopping performances across the festival circuit, headlined his own US tour and found time to release his new EP, Prima Donna. It was only back in February that Vince Staples was here for a Laneway Festival set that was dubbed “ground-rattling and triumphant” by The Wireless. We’re excited to announce that he’s heading back to New Zealand this December for shows in Wellington and Auckland.
 
Vince Staples, whose astonishing double-CD debut Summertime ’06 was one of the most critically acclaimed albums of 2015, recently returned with Prima Donna, his long awaited new 6-song EP.  Prima Donna solely features production from No I.D., DJ Dahi and singer, songwriter James Blake.
 
Accompanying the Prima Donna release was a self-titled short film, conceived by Vince Staples and directed by award-winning director Nabil [Elderkin], who is well known for his work with Kanye West (“Welcome to Heartbreak” and “Paranoid”), Frank Ocean (“Swim Good”), Bruno Mars (“Grenade”), and FKA Twigs (“Two Weeks”). Check out the short film below.
