Rapture Auckland 2014 Update

MEDIA RELEASE: 2nd February 2014

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.

But DAINTY GROUP is very excited to announce his replacement on the Auckland event, another trail-blazing hip-hop act from Los Angeles - ODD FUTURE - 
also known as Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All or OFWGKTA.  Their Auckland show supporting Eminem will feature founding member Tyler, The Creator
who will be joined by fellow rappers Hodgy BeatsDomo GenesisLeft BrainMike G and Taco Bennett.  Fans can expect an exceptional performance 
of sparse beats and electric rhymes delivered with the passionate energy and youthful exuberance that ODD FUTURE is renowned for.  

Kendrick Lamar explains:  "New Zealand!  Sorry I'm missing you this time, but the homies, ODD FUTURE will kill it for you and I'm excited for Australia this month."

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.”

ARIA Award winner 360 broke through with a platinum-selling album Falling And Flying, and hit singles including ‘Boys Like You’, telling true tales from familiar streets 
without pretending or posturing.  This hugely popular Melbourne artist continues to notch up an army of fans while garnering musical accolades and praise.  
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 first ever New Zealand show continues on, with just 13 days left before Auckland’s Western Springs Stadium 
transforms its speedway into a spectacular hip hop event of proportions never seen here before!

Kendrick Lamar will perform on all Rapture Australian dates including Melbourne (19 February), Brisbane (20 February) and Sydney (22 February).
