Mos Def
Rescheduled Auckland Show

Tuesday 1st February – Powerstation

Last week’s postponed show by Mos Def has now been rescheduled for Tuesday 1st February at The Powerstation.

This will be the first-ever solo tour to these shores by the Brooklyn hip-hop legend. The 36-year-old Grammy award-winning rapper (real name Dante Terrell Smith) is making his way down under early in the new year on his The Ecstatic Tour, a trek named after his chart-topping 2009 LP, The Ecstatic.

With the release of his fourth long player last year, the ‘Casa Bey’ MC attracted a slew of critical acclaim. The US edition of Rolling Stone Magazine placed the album at number 17 of their best albums of the year, while Spin magazine described it as “his finest full-length since Black on Both Sides”.

Also a talented actor (with roles in movies such as Brown Sugar, Monster’s Ball, The Italian Job and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), Mos Def first came to prominence back in the mid ‘90s, when he joined the group Urban Thermo Dynamics (UTD) with his younger brother, DCQ, and his younger sister, Ces. Two years later Def guested on projects with hip-hop legends De La Soul and Da Bush Babees, before eventually teaming up with Talib Kweli for the seminal 1998 Black Star project.

Mos Def is currently working on his fifth album and has recently signed a new label contract with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint.

All tickets for the postponed show are valid for the new date and limited tickets are on sale now from Ticketmaster, Beat Merchants and Real Groovy.
