LIL DICKY


Due to Overwhelming Demand, Auckland Show Upgraded to the Logan Campbell Centre!



Due to overwhelming demand from Kiwi fans, Illusive Presents and Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce Lil Dicky’s debut New Zealand show will now take place at The Logan Campbell Centre.

Tickets to the upgraded Auckland show will go on sale to the general public tomorrowTuesday 10 April, from 12pm NZST. Fans are urged to secure their tickets ASAP to avoid disappointment as pre-sale demand was through the roof! Fans that purchased tickets to The Powerstation show do not need to take action; tickets will be valid for entry at The Logan Campbell Centre.

Lil Dicky ushered in 2018 with a new single ‘Freaky Friday’, featuring Grammy-winning, multi-platinum selling entertainer Chris Brown, which racked up over 50 million views in 12 days. Further cementing his return, the track is currently sitting pretty atop the NZ Top 40 singles chart.

‘One of the most savvy, thought-provoking spitters in the game.’ – XXL

Four years ago, Lil Dicky erupted literally overnight when his debut video garnered a million views in just 24 hours. Since then, the prolific entertainer has accumulated hundreds of millions of views, a #1 album and an overwhelming fan base.

Whether he’s wearing a shark onesie on stage or convincing a crowd to join him in an a cappella rendition of the American national anthem, Lil Dicky is a startlingly unique force in the rap game. His comedic routines between tracks leave audiences in stitches, yet also challenged by his provocative and at times heartbreaking lyrics which can be heard on ‘Pillow Talk (feat. Brain)’ and ‘Molly (feat. Brendon Urie)’.

‘Hip hop will never be the same.’ – The Indie Blender

‘Dicky delivered.’ – Philly Mag

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
