Rhythm & Alps and Radio Active are proud to announce the first ever Wellington show for UK legends the Dub Pistols.

Proudly working class and arguably one of the hardest working bands in the business, the Dub Pistols have been tearing up venues and festivals throughout their career.

The Dub Pistols reputation as an explosive live act has seen them turn into festival regulars, with the band headlining some of the biggest festivals in Europe including Glastonbury, Bestival, and Beat-Herder.

Known for their rhythmical blend of bass, turntables, and horns, their 18-year career has seen them work with their biggest heroes like The Specials, Busta Rhymes, Horace Andy, and Madness.

Inspired by the Second Summer of Love, the band were founded by ubiquitous Londoner Barry Ashworth in 1996 and have been at the forefront of beats culture ever since.

They’ve also seen band members come and go, and have gone from the brink of multi-million-dollar international success to the edge of destruction and back again. Their new album ‘Crazy Diamonds’ finds themselves at their bass-driven best.

Their bass-driven live show has seen them win numerous plaudits along the way and recent live guests have included vocalists Rodney P, The Specials’ Terry Hall and Neville Staple, rap wünderkid T.K., Sugardaddy horn-blower Tim Hutton & scratch maestro, DJ Stix.

The Dub Pistols play Wellington for the first time on Friday February 22nd  2018.

Tickets available Thursday 25th October at 8am from: Rhythmndalps.co.nz

Tickets $52 + booking fee
