The Exploited are coming to our shores in November

Monday 23 January 2023

New dates announced!

Returning to our shores after three years away, Scottish punk legends The Exploited have announced their upcoming New Zealand tour has been rescheduled to November 2023. Formed in Edinburgh back in 1979 and creators of such explosive anthems as 'Sex and Violence', 'Army Life', 'Fuck The USA', 'Troops Of Tomorrow', 'UK '82' and 'Cop Cars', The Exploited's red mohawked frontman Wattie Buchan experienced a heart attack in December, necessitating some downtime before the group can get back to touring the globe again. 


And neither is Wattie – but he did have a heart attack in December, so whilst The Exploited will be back up on stages around the world soon, it was felt an extra month to get back to top form was in order. This means the Australian and New Zealand Exploited dates scheduled for February will now be postponed until November 2023. Fear not, Covid lockdowns and near-death experiences will not dissuade Wattie and The Exploited from fulfilling their promise to Aussie and Kiwi fans – they will be here in November and they are promising the best-Exploited shows ever."

Tickets purchased for the original advertised show will be valid for the new dates. Wattie had a heart attack, but he’ll be here – but if you’re too soft, that’s cool - refunds will be available from point of purchase until February 6th 2023."
