L7 New Zealand Shows Postponed To May 2021

L7 New Zealand Shows Postponed To May 2021

C.C. / Wednesday 8th April, 2020 12:57PM

US grunge legends L7 are amongst the countless overseas artists whose Aotearoa tour plans have been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. Fans will be relieved to hear the team of Suzi Gardner, Donita Sparks, Jennifer Finch and drummer Demetra Plakas are still heading our way, with new Auckland and Wellington dates revealed today for May 2021 – fingers crossed Covid-19 will be a weird distant memory by that point. Sparks hasn't let the pandemic stop her in her tracks though, she's just launched an online variety show named The Hi-Low Show to entertain us during the hard times, with last week's episode featuring Lydia Lunch and Dani Miller.

A ubiquitous pop cultural presence in the nineties, L7's killer anthems from such classic long players as Bricks Are Heavy (1992) and Hungry for Stink (1994) ruled the airwaves, soundtracking era-defining films Natural Born Killers, Tank Girl and John Waters' Serial Mom (in which they appeared as Camel Lips). Hold those tickets tight and take note of the new dates here...

Thursday 27th May 2012 – San Fran, Wellington*

Press release:

Grunge rock legends, L7 are set to unleash their live force when they return to Australia and New Zealand in May 2021

Unmistakable in their own unique sound, L7 pioneered the grunge movement with their furious music and feminist ideals. Following their breakthrough 1992 album Bricks Are Heavy, L7 became one of the most highly-regarded grunge acts of the era with hits like "Pretend We're Dead” and “Shitlist”, while their live sets were infamous, fuelled by high-energy, slamming, dancing and stage-diving.

L7 make their comeback to Australia and New Zealand May 2021, gracing Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Wellington and Auckland stages with a snarl, a wink and their latest album Scatter The Rats in tow.

On L7’s new album Scatter The Rats they remain a raucous, subversive, and vital voice in rock. Back with their trademark distorted, heavy riffs, headbanging rhythms and indelible melodies, L7 are taking on society’s biggest dickheads, the fakers and liars, and everyone who doubted them.

No one collective has rocked harder and rejected cultural conformity with more of an edge than the combined forces of Donita Sparks, Suzi Gardner, Jennifer Finch and Demetra "Dee" Plakas.

With a career, highlighted by healthy activism and a revolutionary spark, rock music can’t escape the influence of L7.

L7 are raw, chaotic and enduring pillars of rock music - catch their ferociousness live when they return to Australia and New Zealand in May 2021!

Your original ticket is still valid for entry to the rescheduled show. If you are unable to attend the new date full refunds will be available from point of purchase.
