Melvins, High On Fire + Kylesa Tour Update (2)

Melvins, High On Fire + Kylesa Tour Update (2)

Wednesday 23rd February, 2011 12:45PM

Here is the final update from the promoter regarding The Melvins and High On Fire tour as well as the Kylesa shows as a result of the CHCH earthquake:

Due to circumstances surrounding the Christchurch earthquake, we have revised the Melvins/High On Fire/Kylesa tour schedule as follows:


Bodega, Wellington
Doors 9pm - **LATER START TIME**
Neon Bastard and Elephant of the Ocean to play in Burgundy Room downstairs after the show

KYLESA with The House of Capricorn, Arc of Ascent and Shallow Grave
Whammy Bar, Auckland
Doors 8pm
All tickets for both the pre-existing Wednesday and Thursday Whammy Bar shows will be valid for this show. Door sales $30


with Beastwars
Whammy Bar, Auckland
Doors 8pm
Tickets for the pre-existing Wednesday Whammy bar show only will be valid for this show. Door sales $80

Running schedule for this show as follows:

BEASTWARS - 8:00 - 8:30 (Wine Cellar room)
KYLESA - 8:30 - 9:15
MELVINS - 9:45 - 10:45
HIGH ON FIRE - 11:15 - 12:30
MIND RIOT - 12:30 - 1:00 (Wine Cellar room)

Please note that we have done our very best to be as accommodating as possible to existing ticket-holders while realising that the revised schedule may inconvenience many people. We hope that ticket-holders understand the extreme extenuating circumstances regarding the revised schedule, and hope to see everyone at the new shows. The last 24 hours have been nightmarish in terms of stress and panic levels, and nothing would cheer both bands up more than well attended shows full of pumped Kiwi fans.


If you can longer make the rescheduled shows and would like to request a refund you will need to submit your request to the ticket agent you purchased your tickets from by 8pm tonight (23rd February).  Click HERE if you have purchased tickets via Undertheradar and need to request a refund.

I rang Moshtix and they are triple checking and calling me back but they believe it is canceled. Rang Bodega they understand that the Melvins are on the ferry en route to us...So who knows?! - it may end up being a real intimate gig. I think we all need a cold one so impromptu party at Bodega I say.

Moshtix is incorrect - the information provide above is from the promoter - the Bodega show tonight is going ahead.

Thanks to the band members, crew, organisers and venues for making it happen in such difficult and tragic times.

I agree. Nothing would be better than a pint with the king.

Glad the Auckland gigs are still going ahead, though minus High On Fire tonight. However, awesome to see that High On Fire are headlining over Melvins on the rescheduled show. Definitely must be a stressful time for all involved, so thanks for hanging in there :)
