Event details

THE STREETS, or Mike Skinner to his mum, burst onto the UK music scene in 2002. Described as the voice of his generation, the ground-breaking mix of beats and rhymes of Original Pirate Material, led to a Mercury Music Prize Nomination, and both critical and commercial acclaim. That was just the beginning of the rollercoaster that would run through the modern-day opus of A Grand Don't Come For Free, which spawned the UK No.1 Dry Your Eyes, as well as a host of Top 10 singles and went multi-platinum around the world. Having released several new tracks and with those revolutionary tunes on tap, Mike Skinner returns to New Zealand since his last appearance at 2007's Big Day Out to play two massive sideshows in Auckland and Wellington.
