Helmet has had to postpone their upcoming New Zealand tour, which was scheduled to take place in May, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The good news is that the promoter Eccles Entertainment, has rescheduled these shows in New Zealand to November 2020. All three shows are still going ahead - Monday November 16 at The Studio in Auckland, Tuesday November 17 at Meow in Wellington and Thursday November 19 at Cassells Blue Smoke in Christchurch.
There’s nothing punters need to do to organise new tickets, as all tickets remain valid for the new dates.
Existing ticket holders will be contacted by presenting partner and ticketing agent, Under the Radar, via email regarding the postponement and information for those who can’t make the new dates.
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 this 2020.
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.”
