Is a summer road trip truly a summer road trip without your best pals’ rendition of F***ing Problems while cruising around the Coromandel or heading in and out of the ‘burbs? Rakim Mayers aka ASAP Rocky aka A$AP Rocky aka Lord Flacko is heading to our shores next month to perform at Auckland’s Vector Arena. Though it’s not the US rapper’s first trip to the country, it will mark the first time the king of nicknames brings his second full-length album to life.
AT. LONG. LAST. A$AP hit airwaves and streaming services alike in May last year, with appearances from M.I.A, ScHoolboy Q, Future, Kanye West and even Rod Stewart – with Stewart’s hoarse vocals featuring on Everyday, which has seen plenty of radio rotation. Fans will ideally be treated to an explosive concert that showcases these latest tunes, but is also peppered with a few classics from A$AP’s debut album – think the ever-catchy Goldie or the poetic Phoenix.
Tickets – both seated and standing – are still available for the 24 February 2016 performance.
