Public Enemy are coming to New Zealand in January 2011 to perform their seminal “Fear of A Black Planet” album on its 20th anniversary.

Chuck D, Flavor Flav, Professor Griff, DJ Lord, the S1W1s and a super nasty funk band will play the entire album and Public Enemy classics at two exclusive NZ shows in Christchurch and Auckland.

Public Enemy will clearly demonstrate on multiple levels exactly why they are the most important group in the history of hip hop.

Exploding out of Long Island, New York in the early 1980s, their firebrand lyrical assault, the Bomb Squad’s innovative production techniques, and their unmistakeable live performances give them a formidable reputation. They terrify the establishment, and have continued to blaze a trail over a twenty year period up until the present day.

Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Public Enemy 44th on its list of "The Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, and today they are more autonomous and as determined as ever, with no signs of slowing down.

Few hip-hop albums had the impact of Public Enemy’s 1990 Top 10 smash “Fear of a Black Planet.” It struck a chord with black and white alike, city dwellers and suburbanites, while spawning No. 1 singles that illustrated the yin and yang of the group . Flavor Flav’s humour and Chuck D’s rabble-rousing political consciousness is all done in the best tradition of black funk music.

Public Enemy will deliver more than hype and perform two limited capacity shows in New Zealand.
