Mastodon and Gojira to play Auckland this March

Support from Kiwi acts Just One Fix and Mothra

American metallers Mastodon are returning to New Zealand, with a one-off show at Trusts Arena in Auckland on Saturday, March 31.

Presented by The Rock, the announcement comes just weeks after Mastodon won theGrammy Award for ‘Best Metal Performance’ for their song ‘Sultan’s Curse’ from the band’s 2017 album EMPEROR OF SAND.

They’ll be supported by one of rock’s most exciting acts, Gojira, who were twice hand-picked by Metallica to tour the US with them, with Kirk Hammett describing the French prog-metal act as “the best thing I’ve heard in a long time”.

A live force to be reckoned with, Mastodon’s return to Kiwi shores will follow their highly anticipated appearance at the Download Festival in Australia, as well as their own headline shows, as they continue to tour EMPEROR OF THE SAND around the world. As well as earning the metallers a Grammy, the album has been described as one of their best yet.

New Zealand’s very-own metal stalwarts Just One Fix will also join the bill. The band has been raising hell since they first emerged on the local scene in 1999.

Rounding out the metal-fest is Auckland prog-rockers, Mothra.

Don’t miss your chance to see four mighty metal acts – MastodonGojiraJust One Fixand Mothra – back-to-back, one night only, at Trusts Arena in Auckland on Saturday,March 31.

Tickets on sale from ThursdayFebruary 15, at 9.00am at www.ticketek.com
