Me First and The Gimme Gimmes New Zealand Tour.

Featuring Spike Slawson, Joey Cape (Lagwagon), Dave Raun (Lagwagon), Jay Bentley (Bad Religion), Lindsay McDougall (Frenzal Rhomb)

Get your party shirts ready, boys and girls! Punk rock super-group and cover band extraordinaire, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes are set to return our shores this October!

For the uninitiated, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes are a punk rock all-star team, consisting of Lagwagon frontman Joey Cape on the rhythm guitar, Australian rock legend, Lindsay “The Doctor” McDougall of Frenzal Rhomb on lead guitar, Lagwagon drummer and Fat Wreck utility superhero Dave Raun on the skins, with bass duties occupied by Bad Religion’s Jay Bentley, and rounded out by incomparable crooner Spike Slawson. Together, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes—an outfit that has always operated more like a beer-hall Pussycat Dolls than a regular mortal band—contain so much hot air, so much pomp, so much attitude, that it’s a wonder that these guys can still manage to pull their five individual tour buses into the same parking lot, put their differences aside and belt out the ballads without clawing each other’s eyes out. But they do, for the love of the fans, the music, and of course, the applause.

“Their flashy presence and brotherly banter makes every show feel like a momentous celebration”
-- New Noise

“Boundless energy, a kooky style and unrivalled passion…you can’t stand still and listen to The Gimmes, it’s fucking impossible”
-- Vulturehound

After 7 studio albums, tackling just about every genre under the sun, be it Motown, Country, show tunes, J-Pop (sung in Japanese!), these seasoned punk rock pros have triumphed on every occasion in a way only the Gimmes could. With such an extensive and wide-ranging catalog, where does one begin

Luckily for us, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes have set their sights on New Zealand to perform all the best hits. It’s a veritable sing-along extravaganza you won’t want to miss!
