Queens Of The Stone Age & Nine Inch Nails

Announce Wellington Concert
With Special Guest Brody Dalle

The Frontier Touring Company are thrilled to announce that due to popular demand two of the world’s most influential bands of the last decade, Nine Inch Nails and Queens Of The Stone Age, will join forces for a massive double headline tour this March that now includes a Wellington concert on Thursday 20th March!

Ticket sales to both the Auckland and Christchurch concerts have been very strong prompting the addition of a Wellington concert. Tickets to the Wellington concert at TSB Bank Arena will go on sale through Ticketek on Thursday 30th January at 9.00am.

Queens Of The Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails are no strangers to New Zealand shores having both previously performed in Auckland on various occasions. This will be both bands first performances in Wellington and Christchurch making it possible for fans all around New Zealand to attend a concert close to their home town.

Queens Of The Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails will also bring very special guest, Australian-born singer/songwriter/musician Brody Dalle along for the ride! Dalle will open the shows with a full band, playing a selection of songs from her extensive catalogue from her renowned punk rock bands The Distillers and Spinnerette and new songs from her fierce forthcoming solo album.

The relationship between these two rock powerhouse bands is no secret; they’ve played over thirty shows together in the United States in 2005 and have teamed up for several recordings together over the years, including an appearance by Reznor on ‘Kalopsia’ from Queens Of The Stone Age’s Like Clockwork.

It’s evident these two bands share a musical affinity and are prodigies of the live show. New Zealand, you had better secure your tickets because this is going to be one mammoth, mind blowing, live event of the year that you definitely don’t want to miss!

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
