Labretta Suede & The Motel 6 - Final NZ Shows Announced

Chris Cudby / Thursday 4th February, 2021 12:44PM

Labretta Suede & The Motel 6 have declared they'll soon be relocating to their spiritual home in the US, wrapping up sixteen years of bringing the wild rockin' good times to up-for-it punters all across Aotearoa. It simply wouldn't be right for them to set sail without a farewell rager or six, and the hard-gigging team of Labretta Suede and Johnny Moondog are doing just that, playing red hot send-off shows in Auckland, Wellington and Lyttelton this month and in early March. Do as they say and "give them your money, get yourselves a ticket and help them on their endeavour!" Each gig will also feature their side project Priscilla & The Presleys (Elvis cover band) and their world travelled, sell out Bomp Stompin’ Boogie DJ night too — here's the details...

UPDATE 1/03/21: Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, Labretta Suede & The Motel 6's Auckland event has been postponed to 10th March...

Press release:

Come and do the cry -cry dance and farewell your favourite Rock n Roller's 'Labretta Suede & The Motel 6 'before they relocate back to the USA (their spiritual home) again.

These gyrating ghouls have had an unstoppable, international, 16 year long career and have always risked everything for their art and for their fans. We have been incredibly lucky to have had them based back in NZ for the past few years and they have done their best to spread their rock n roll disease all over this long white cloud.

This self funded army of misfits deserve only the finest of send offs - so give them your money, get yourselves a ticket and help them on their endeavour!

Labretta Suede & Johnny Moondog have been at the forefront of NZ underground rock n roll and sub genre music through their untouchable live performances, high voltage radio shows & the hip swingin' DJ sets. This Mom & Pop of weirdo rock n roll have added so much to Auckland's night life and music culture across country. They have always led the charge of bringing their community together, so let's face it, they are gonna be leaving a giant hole.

So, do yourselves a favour and don't miss this event because they will be playing their hearts out for you with their 2 side projects along with the Motel 6.

Come show your support for these undeniably loveably misfits and see them off in style!
