Indie-rap surrealist Aesop Rock is heading to New Zealand for one Auckland show in September. Last here way back in 2004 for the Big Day Out, the upcoming show is Aesop Rocks first ever headline show on our shores and will seem supported by Rob Sonic and DJ Zone.

Aesop Rock w/ Rob Sonic & DJ Zone
Thursday 21st September, Kings Arms, Auckland

Presale tickets available Friday 2nd June, from
General tickets available Monday 25th June, from UTR and Flying Out.

With an undeniable flow and a penchant for rhyming over some of the best productions available in the genre, this is a live show that needs to be seen. Aesop will also be joined on this tour by his Hail Mary Mallon counterpart, Rob Sonic, as well as DJ Zone.

Two decades under his belt and Aesopís only improving. His extensive vocabulary was reported to be the largest in rap. His choice of words warp time and disrupt balance with phonetic pairings that sprout out unpredictably. His latest album The Impossible Kid is a testament to this.

Live, Aesop Rock delivers a highly engaging and gripping performance. The energy levels keep on rising throughout the set with hands in the air and bouncing beats. The show is incredibly tight and precise, and given how complex and obscure some of Aesop Rockís lyrics are, along with his unorthodox flow, the whole experience just leaves you in awe!
