Violent Femmes 2020

Violent Femmes return to New Zealand for not-to-be missed concerts in March!

Milwaukee’s finest, Violent Femmes are hitting Auckland and Wellington stages in March 2020 to perform songs so many Kiwis hold dear to their hearts.

Get ready for Blister In The Sun, Gone Daddy Gone, Kiss Off, Add it Up, American Music, Please Do Not Go and so many more!

Violent Femmes play the Opera House, Wellington on Tuesday 24 March and Logan Campbell Centre, Auckland on Wednesday 25 March.

Pre-sale tickets available for Plus1, Ticketmaster (Wellington) and Ticketek (Auckland) members from 9am Tuesday 15 October, with general sale from 9am Thursday 17 October.

Violent Femmes eponymous debut from 1983 was the soundtrack for so many of our teen years. It was – and still remains – a firm favourite and a very influential record with its rugged pop sensibility and themes of alienation, isolation, sexual frustration and angst.

Violent Femmes have continued to release great albums, and for their return to New Zealand shores they come with a brand new album – their 10th – Hotel Last Resort, which resides among the band’s finest work, simultaneously refining and redefining their one-of-a-kind take on American music.

The album merges front porch folk, post punk, spiritual jazz, country blues, avant garde minimalism and golden age rock ‘n’ roll into something still altogether their own.
Don’t miss Violent Femmes – the legendary Gordon Gano, Brian Ritchie, Blaise Garza and John Sparrow – in Auckland and Wellington in March 2020 performing classics from across their entire career.
