Shihad To Play Iconic Albums Live

Thursday 17th June, 2010 9:49AM

Shihad have done a lot in their more than 20 year career. Their eight studio albums have truly cemented them as one of New Zealand's most iconic bands. So what better way to further solidify that status than to remind the country how they got here?

Shihad will be playing their albums Killjoy and The General Electric, track-by-track, across the country in July and August. This is your chance to see the band at their heaviest. Don't miss out.

SHIHAD

TWO ICONIC ALBUMS PERFORMED TRACK BY TRACK

OVER TWO ICONIC SHOWS

Few bands can lay claim to a truly Iconic album during a career. Far fewer still can lay claim to several. One band that can is Shihad.

In support of this stone cold fact, this July and August, Shihad will embark on a series of two-night performances in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland. Night one will consist of a full song-by-song live run through of Killjoy, with Shihad repeating the process with The General Electric on night two. Suffice to say all dates on this highly anticipated tour will sell-out.

With nods from rock comrades Dave Grohl, Iggy Pop and Metallica, Gold and Platinum album sales, and sold out tour after sold out tour Shihad remain as vital today as they were when first smashing stages twenty one years ago.

Already renown as one of the best live bands in the world, this July and August Shihad will perform some of the most unique and compelling performances of their astonishing career. Come and witness!
