Fatboy Slim announces New Zealand tour

Tuesday 18 October 2022

Indisputable icon of UK Big Beat, Aotearoa welcomes back Fatboy Slim aka pioneering DJ / producer Norman Cook (Beats International, The Housemartins) — playing his largest scale nationwide tour to date and headlining Tāmaki Makaurau's newly announced Gardens Music Festival - Victoria Park in early 2023. Last here during the pre-pandemic days of 2019 (which feels more like a decade ago), Fatboy Slim's burning hot anthems 'Right Here, Right Now', 'Rockafeller Skank' and 'Praise You' are beloved by multiple generations of party-goers worldwide. Today's tour news follows last month's release of the whopping fifty track Right Here, Right Then collection, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Fatboy Slim's landmark Big Beach Boutique event, which attracted more than 250,000 fans in 2002.

Along with his Gardens Music Festival Auckland performance, Cook will be making the most of our glorious summer months with must-attend shows in Wellington, Christchurch, Queenstown, Napier and Taupo. He'll also be squeezing in some yet to be officially announced intimate side-shows, including "a special DJ set at the top of the Sky Tower." You can register for presales to "go in the draw to win a major prize including flights to Auckland, accommodation for two at Sky City Hotel and two tickets to see Fatboy Slim perform up the Sky Tower on Wednesday, February 1 2023 " — details below and local supports to be revealed soon...
