FIrst Time in NZ: Timbaland Shock Value 2008 Tour

Timbaland is one of, if not the greatest producers of our time. He is the single biggest creative force currently active in popular music and has been responsible for making smash hits for some of the biggest artists in the world including Justin Timberlake, The Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, Rihanna, Madonna and Usher, to name just a few. His latest album Shock Value has gone double platinum in NZ, and the smash hit single “The Way I Are” was one of the biggest selling songs of 2007. And now for the first time ever, Timbaland is bringing his dynamic live show to NZ for the Shock Value Tour.

Born Timothy Z. Mosley in Norfolk, Virginia on March 10, 1972, Timbaland, so named by Jodeci member Devante Swing after the Timberland boot, has had many reincarnations--from disc jockey DJ Tiny Tim to half of the hip hop group Timbaland & Magoo; from membership in Devante Swing’s Swing Mob crew known as Da Bassment to S.B.I. (Surrounded By Idiots), a production ensemble including Pharrell Williams, to being CEO of his own label, Mosley Music Group. Ginuwine’s hit single “Pony” and debut LP “Ginuwine…the Bachelor”, produced by Timbaland, introduced a unique rhythmic style that defined the new wave of music in the ‘90s--R&B and hip hop mixed with an eclectic smorgasbord of effects held together by complex syncopated snare beats. At the same time, his partnership with high school friend Missy Elliott blossomed into a pairing that delivered Aaliyah’s double platinum “One In A Million” and they became one of music’s most successful production/songwriting teams. Naturally, Elliott looked to Timbaland to also define her as an artist and their work together, tracks such as “The Rain,”propelled Elliott to major stardom and critical acclaim.

Timbaland’s genre breaking has changed popular music today, and he takes pride in his success at staying ahead of the curve with his originality and experimentation. Confident and charismatic, his goal is still to blow the listener’s mind and make them move to the beat.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see one of the most exciting artists in the world today perform all his hits including “Apologise”, “The Way I Are”, “Give It To Me”, “Scream” and heaps more.


Friday July 18th – AUCKLAND, Vector Arena Tickets from Ticketmaster
