Wellington to experience Rapture in March

Rap superstar Eminem, who last visited New Zealand four years ago, will make his first-ever Wellington appearance at Westpac Stadium on Saturday 2 March with his Rapture 2019 show.

Special guests will be announced shortly for what will be the Detroit rap icon’s only New Zealand show of his Australasian tour.

Eminem is coming to Wellington after tour dates in Brisbane (20 February), Sydney (22 Feb), Melbourne (24 Feb) and Perth (27 Feb), with the sequel to his Rapture Tour. That 2014 visit to Western Springs in Auckland, was the venue’s fastest selling show on record, attracting the largest audience seen at the Springs since the 1980s.

Tickets to Rapture 2019 go on sale from 10.00am on Tuesday 23 October from ticketek.co.nz, with MyTicketek presales from 10.00am this Friday, 19 October.

The show by the biggest selling rapper of all time is expected to draw the biggest crowd ever to Westpac Stadium, a record currently held by Robbie Williams’ concert in 2000.
