Hilltop Hoods


Hilltop Hoods are crossing the ditch for a New Zealand tour.

The renowned Australian hip hop trio will perform in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in the first week of September, supported by local artist Freddy Reynold.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 16th at 10am local time. The Ticketek NZ and TEG Live pre-sale begins on Wednesday, June 14th at 10am local time.

Hilltop Hoods’ Kiwi trip will follow their biggest UK and Europe tour to date, set to take place between June and July. They’ll also perform at Splendour in the Grass and Spin Off in their home country in July.

The New Zealand tour will be the first time Kiwi fans have been able to witness the trio’s energetic performances in four years. On their last visit to the country, the group supported Eminem on his NZ Rapture Tour, performing to a record-breaking crowd of over 46,000.

Fans can expect to hear classic hits like “Leave Me Lonely”, “Exit Sign”, “The Nosebleed Section” and “Show Business”, a collaboration with US soul singer Eamon that was well-received last year. Fans might also be lucky to hear new material from the group, with Hilltop Hoods teasing a new single on social media last week.

The legacy of Hilltop Hoods is well-known by now. Their lengthy career includes ten ARIA awards, six number one albums, sold-out arena tours, over 60 platinum accreditations and the achievement of being the number one most-streamed Australian artist on Spotify for two years running.
