HELMET 30th ANNIVERSARY TOUR All coming attractions
Doors Open: 6:30 pm – Show Time: 8:00 pm
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.
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.”
