A$AP Rocky - Debut New Zealand Tour

NICHE, LIVE NATION & MUCHMORE MUSIC

A$AP ROCKY
Debut New Zealand Tour

Tuesday 25th June – Logan Campbell Centre – Auckland

Following hot on the heels of sold out tours by Kendrick Lamar, Tyga, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and the announcement of the Nas co-curated Movement Festival, Niche, Live Nation & Muchmore Music are proud to present the debut New Zealand tour of one of the hottest properties in Rap right now, A$AP Rocky.

Released in January this year, his top #10 NZ Top 40 debut album - LongLiveA$AP - defies categorisation, standing out amongst the pack as the document of where Rap and Hip Hop culture is headed.

A blurry mix of lyricism, slowed down rave synths and featuring a star studded line-up of guests including Florence Welch, Santigold, Skrillex and rap contemporaries Kendrick Lamar, Drake, 2 Chainz and more, LongLiveA$AP is unavoidable in the clubs and on the street.

LongLiveA$AP is adorned by production from long time collaborators including Clams Casino and Hit Boy, and features the breakthrough single Goldie which was easily one of 2012’s biggest club hits. Watch the video for Goldie here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofoIMg76Sng and his most recent performance on Late Night With David Letterman here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NepKGuP_Q8Y

In 2007 the Harlem born and bred rapper, Rocky, assembled his A$AP Mob consisting of rappers, producers and music video directors (A$AP having mutliple meanings including ‘Always Strive and Prosper’, ‘Assassinating Snitches and Police’ and ‘Acronym Symbolizing Any Purpose’). In 2011 the compilation Deep Purple was released followed by Peso, his first official single which quickly gained radio airplay. He was immediately snapped up, signed by Sony and released the LiveLongA$AP mixtape to critical acclaim.

This success was not just US based, with A$AP Rocky’s efforts being noticed across the pond as he was shortlisted in the BBC’s influential ‘Sound Of 2012’ poll.

Following tours with Drake and Kendrick Lamar and performing at the 2012 Pitchfork Festival (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRKWovZ3Ino), A$AP Rocky performed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and remixed Rihanna’s Cockiness (which was also performed at the MTV Video Music Awards).

Transcending art, fashion and music, demand for A$AP Rocky in New Zealand is reaching boiling point and this tour is destined to sell-out.

Don’t miss A$AP Rocky when he touches down in Auckland this June.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
