Odd Future to play solo show in Auckland

Posted in: New Zealand Daily News
By Daily News staff - 4th November 2011


Odd Future are set to perform a solo show in Auckland instead of performing at the Auckland Big Day Out.

"The Auckland City Council has jumped the gun, leaking that Odd Future will no longer be appearing at the Auckland Big Day Out due to lobbyist groups," Big Day Out promoter Ken West claims in an email Triple J received entitled 'OMFG DON'T PANIC!'.

"We are currently in discussions with Odd Future and will be announcing their own solo show for Auckland in the coming weeks. This does not affect Australia. Last time they played for the government at Vivid!"

Editor's note: can confirm Auckland Council did not "leak" the information about Odd Future not playing at the Auckland Big Day Out. We contacted the council in response to concerns from members of the glbt community, and the council confirmed complainants' claims that Odd Future would not perform at Mt Smart. The Big Day Out has not responded to Daily News' request for clarification of the situation.
