Helmet Announce Two NZ Shows

New York’s legendary riff lords Helmet are set to make a triumphant return to the stage, with two New Zealand shows in which they will play their iconic album Betty in its entirety, alongside their other well-known tunes.

The alt-metal rockers will play in Christchurch and Auckland. Presented by Brent Eccles Entertainment, Under the Radar, 95bFM's Hard, Fast & Heavy show and RDU. This is Helmet’s first ever performance in Christchurch and a lot of Kiwi fans are all ready to be blown away!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Helmet will now play in New City Hotel & Galatos this spring.

With no opening act, the first half of the show will be dedicated solely to the 1994 classic, critically acclaimed album, Betty. Popular tracks like ‘Wilma’s Rainbow’, ‘Milquetoast’ and ‘Biscuits For Smut’ will be brought to life in recognition of one of the most exhilarating hard rock records of the 90s. The second half of the show will include a selection of all-time, back catalogue favourites, and tracks from their new record Dead To The World.

Established in 1989, Helmet took the hard rock blueprint of forbearers like Zeppelin, AC/DC and Wire and set it aflame, bringing raw power, volume and an almost mathematical sense of swing to the well-worn form, igniting an all-consuming firestorm that continues to burn incandescent to this day. Across 27 years and eight studio albums, Page Hamilton and his band Helmet have set the standard for uncompromising and sonically brutal guitar driven rock.

Helmet’s albums, including Betty, Meantime and Aftertaste, rewrote the rulebook for guitar bands in the 90s. Kiwi hard rock fans, get in quick for these shows will be once in a lifetime, must-see events!
