QOTSA and NIN massive doubline headline tour next week!

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE & NINE INCH NAILS
KICK OFF THEIR EPIC DOUBLE HEADLINE TOUR WITH A BANG. NZ SHOWS NEXT WEEK!
WITH SPECIAL GUEST BRODY DALLE

Get ready New Zealand! Two of the world's biggest rock powerhouses, Queens Of The Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails, are headed our way for three eye-popping shows next week!

In what has to be one of the most exciting double headline bills ever, it's no surprise that both bands have been bringing the house down at each show since their tour kicked off in Sydney last week. Critics and fans alike have been raving with rapturous applause:

‘NIN brought an exhilarating mix of the pulverising industrial rock that first drew many of us to them…

“We’re trying to do something that none of us will ever forget, that's the point of tonight,” Homme said after leading his band through the squealing riffs and sultry groove of I Sat by the Ocean. Mission accomplished.’ – Sydney Morning Herald

‘It was billed as the Massive Double Headline tour and the combined alternative rock force of Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails proved to pack a mighty punch at the opening concert in Sydney last night.’ – The Daily Telegraph

'Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails have landed in Australia to teach fans who think Flume is the second coming a thing or two about music. The American heavyweights demonstrated the swagger of men half their age, while proving that rock’n’roll is still the most potent possible thing to see live.' - The Guardian

The New Zealand tour kicks off at Auckland's Vector Arena next Wednesday and carries on to both Wellington and Christchurch. These will be Nine Inch Nails first shows outside of Auckland. Queens of The Stone Age unfortunately had to cancel their Wellington and Christchurch concerts on the last tour here in 2011. Both bands are over the moon to be playing three cities in NZ!

Tickets for all shows are still available. Get yours today for this double headline tour made in absolute rock'n'roll heaven.

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.
