One of the most critically acclaimed and successful hip hop artists of our time Kendrick Lamar is heading to New Zealand in support of fourth album Damn.
The 2018 Pulitzer Prize and twelve-time Grammy Award winning artist will make his highly anticipated return to our shores in July, performing at Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium on July 17th and Auckland’s Spark Arena on July 19th and 20th.
Lamar is once again riding high on the New Zealand charts with his #2 smash hit soundtrack album Black Panther: The Album and collaborations with SZA ‘All the Stars’, The Weeknd 'Pray for Me’ both top 5 hits. As well as his chart domination, Lamar made history earlier this month to become the first ever popular music artist to take out the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for music.
He was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time Magazine and in the best 10 rappers of all time by Billboard, amongst other accolades. Lamar most recently curated and produced the soundtrack for Marvel Studios blockbuster Black Panther, which he worked on during the Damn. tour in the United States last year.
