DAINTY GROUP regrets to advise that Kendrick Lamar is no longer able to perform at Eminem's Auckland concert on Saturday 15 February due to an unavoidable scheduling conflict.

excited to announce his replacement on the Auckland event,

Promoter Paul Dainty says: "The
good news is that we’ve been able to sub-in another killer
LA hip hop act - ODD FUTURE. Also just
added to the line-up is
one of Australia's finest - 360 - so it's now a huge bill for Rapture Auckland. And Kendrick will definitely be joining us for the Rapture Australia shows
in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.”
winner 360 broke through with a
platinum-selling album Falling And Flying, and hit singles
including ‘Boys Like You’, telling true tales from

His hook-laden tunes offer the listener a no-holds-barred, cross-genre assault - all delivered in Sixty's forthright, unique and truly relatable manner.
Meanwhile the countdown to EMINEM’s
