Due to the devastating events that occurred in Christchurch today, tonight's show has been officially cancelled. We have been advised by The Christchurch Police that due to the ongoing nature of the events that it is best to keep everyone safe and at home. All ticket purchases will be refunded by Under The Radar. The band is safe and want to share some words with other locals for the community tonight- we will be live streaming this from the following event page https://www.facebook.com/events/556165784905771/

Pussy Riot have one of the most important voices of the last 10 years. Gaining worldwide notoriety in 2012 after being imprisoned for 'hooliganism motivated by religious hatred’ for their performance inside a Moscow church. They are the epitome of modern protest music, brash, unrelenting and challenging.

Featuring three key members, the iconic feminist punk rock performance band play Christchurch for one night only.

Riot Days is their story, presented in a truly iconic and inimitable way. Riot Days is a gig, Riot Days is a show, Riot Days is an experience.

New revolutionary electronic punk opera

- SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

powerful and exhilarating...

Alyokhina's collaboration with music producer Alexander Cheparukhin and director Yury Muravitsky was full of fierce, rousing joy, free of scripted cues...

...poetic, razor-sharp and disarmingly witty...

Riot Days was a generous document to defiance, a kinetic invitation to dissent. I left blazing with hope...

Riot Days convinced me that gigs still have the power to move the masses

- THE GUARDIAN (London show - Islington Assembly Hall)

...it's anger that powers this swaggering, throbbing gig by Pussy Riot Theatre. A ragged mix of performance art, poetry and bone-crunching trash-can tunes, it's based on Riot Days, the memoir by Maria Alyokhina, the leading member of the Russian post-punk, feminist political-protest collective. It's cartoonish, poundingly emphatic, blackly funny and furious...

...hectic, brutal force.- THE TIMES (London show - Islington Assembly Hall)

...stunning audio-visual experience

...dark droning electronica that perfectly matches the mood and power of the story

...this unique event is more than just a gig but a theatrical experience

... It's like watching the best punk rock show of 2017 - if punk rock was actually in tune to modern sounds

...powerful direct messages, dashes of humour, moments of seething emotional honesty and a simple plea for freedom in a one hour show that is one of the best live experiences out there.

Inventive, passionate, darkly funny in parts, twitching with energy and intelligent defiance and anger and yet full of compassion this is a moral tale for our times delivered with an intense brilliance

- LOUDER THAN WAR - a blog review of John Robb, and English punk legend, writer and TV host (Manchester show - Gorilla)
