The shamelessly eccentric US rapper and pop culture icon Riff Raff will play a one-off New Zealand concert on Friday, June 9. After tickets to the Auckland gig were snapped up in just one day, the show is now being moved to a larger venue, The Studio.
Now LA-based but born in Houston, Texas, Riff Raff started to amass a cult following in the early 2000s with music he was releasing online. He became an internet sensation and later dazzled fans and critics alike in 2014 with his debut album, Neon Icon.
Signed to Diplo’s record label Mad Decent, Riff Raff followed up the success of Neon Icon with 2016’s Peach Panther, featuring the likes of Danny Brown, G-Eazy and King Chip.
Without a doubt one of the most colourful characters in music, Riff Raff is an artist who demands attention and his live performances are no exception. Don’t miss the opportunity to party with one of hip-hop’s most intriguing icons when he graces New Zealand shores in June.
