Guns N' Roses announce Auckland show; reschedule Wellington date for 2022

In a history-making moment, TEG DAINTY can now reveal that Guns N’ Roses are the first-ever international act to announce a concert at Auckland’s iconic, world-class stadium Eden Park. This huge news comes alongside confirmation that the biggest stadium rock tour of 2021 is moving to Summer 2022!

Due to Covid-19, the Guns N’ Roses New Zealand tour dates have now been rescheduled to two massive stadium shows in December 2022. Their Wellington Sky Stadium date now moves to Thursday 8 December 2022, and their date with history at Eden Park in AucklandSaturday 10 December 2022.

Paul Dainty AM, President & CEO of TEG DAINTY said today “Despite our best efforts and working with the relevant authorities in New Zealand and Australia it recently became clear that we could not proceed in 2021 due to Covid’s resurgence. Re-scheduling what is likely to be the biggest stadium rock tour of next year does take some time and I’m delighted that the stars have now aligned. Guns N’ Roses are one of the greatest bands of all time and we’re going to make a little bit of history and be back bigger and better in Summer 2022.”

Eden Park CEO Nick Sautner adds, “We are thrilled that Guns N’ Roses will be the first international band scheduled to play at Eden Park in 2022. A true celebration of a new post-COVID era, this show will provide much needed escapism and economic benefit to Auckland. Eden Park could not be more excited to play host to these legendary rockers. We anticipate a massive response to the addition of an Auckland show and know that the fans both locally and across New Zealand will not want to miss out.”

Shane Harmon, Chief Executive, Wellington’s Sky Stadium has this to say, “While we know fans will be disappointed, we’re thrilled that this is just a postponement and delighted that Guns N’ Roses have confirmed their return next Summer. Their show in 2017 was one of the best we have ever held at Sky Stadium.”

Forsyth Barr Stadium CEO Terry Davies said, ‘’Planning International events during this pandemic is incredibly difficult. Of course, we are disappointed that Dunedin will miss out on the rescheduled program. However, we understand and know that both parties are committed to working together on future opportunities for Dunedin’’.
