Helmet to tear up NZ stages with their '30th Anniversary Tour' this May 2020

Seminal alt-metal heroes Helmet will be blasting up NZ stages this May 2020, as part of their much-anticipated '30th Anniversary Tour'. They'll be winding up shows happening at Auckland's The Studio, Wellington's Meow and Christchurch's Blue Smoke.

Fitting for a 30-year celebration, Helmet will perform a 30-song set each night of the tour. They'll be playing tracks from across their eight-album back catalogue, as well as rarities from older EPs and singles—with the possibility of a few covers mixed in for good measure.

Hailing from New York City, Helmet was founded in 1989 by frontman and lead guitarist Page Hamilton. Upon debuting, they've released their first full length album 'Strap It On' (1990) followed by a string of genre-defining classics like 'Betty' (1994), 'Aftertaste' (1997) and 'Size Matters' (2004). Furthermore, the group found mainstream success with their 1992 release 'Meantime'—a record that has sold over a million copies worldwide and has become a quintessential rock album of its time.

Page Hamilton reflected on his 30-year journey with Helmet: "The day John, Peter and I auditioned Henry is the day I consider to be the beginning of Helmet. The year was 1989 and I think the month was May. I love playing this music more than ever with my current bandmates, Kyle, Dan and Dave. To celebrate 30 years of recording and touring, we decided to play 30 songs a night… We hope to see you all there."

Across their spanning career, Helmet have contributed music to a number of acclaimed films including 'Johnny Mnemonic', 'The Crow', 'Feeling Minnesota', 'The Jerky Boys', 'Gun Crazy' and 'Judgement Night' (a collaboration with hip-hop group, House of Pain).

Prepare to have your earholes pummeled as Helmet perform their rollicking live performances next year!
