Venue change for Helmet's NZ shows

Excitement is building ahead of one of 2017’s most highly-anticipated tours - Helmet live in New Zealand. 
Tickets to New York’s legendary riff lords are in hot demand, and today promoter Brent Eccles Entertainment announced that both shows are moving to new venues.
In Christchurch, due to unforeseen circumstances, Helmet will now play New City Hotel, Colombo Street on Friday April 21. In Auckland, the gig on Saturday April 22 is being moved from the Kings Arms to Galatos to avoid any potential issues around noise complaints.
Helmet will play their iconic album Betty in its entirety, alongside their other well-known tunes.

With no opening act, the first half of the show will be dedicated to the 1994 classic, critically acclaimed album, Betty Tracks like ‘Wilma’s Rainbow’, ‘Milquetoast’ and ‘Biscuits For Smut’ will be brought to life in recognition of one of the most exciting hard rock records of the 90s.
The second half of the show will include a selection of all-time, back catalogue favourites, and tracks from their new record Dead To The World.
Across 27 years and eight studio albums, Page Hamilton and his band Helmet have set the standard for uncompromising and sonically brutal guitar driven rock. Established in 1989, Helmet took the hard rock blueprint of forbearers like Zeppelin, AC/DC and Wire and set it aflame, bringing raw power, volume and an almost mathematical sense of swing to the well-worn form, igniting an all-consuming firestorm that continues to burn incandescent to this day.


Friday April 21st: New City Hotel, Christchurch

Saturday April 22nd: Galatos, Auckland
