MGMT PERFORMING IN AUCKLAND AND WELLINGTON IN 2011
The Frontier Touring Company is excited to announce the return of MGMT to NZ for two exclusive shows!
After three sell out shows in a row at Auckland's Powerstation last year MGMT couldn't wait to get back to New Zealand and play some more shows! MGMT has become an international festival favorite with performances at South By Southwest, Coachella, Lollapalooza, Sasquatch and Bonnaroo in the states, Reading and the Glastonbury extravaganza in the UK and Meredith and Splendour In The Grass in Australia. After previously touring and performing with Radiohead, Beck, Yeasayer and Of Montreal, the last two years have seen MGMT become a headline concert attraction in its own right.
2008's Oracular Spectacular established the band as a visionary force in pop music and gainded multiple Grammy nominations, whilst follow up 2010's Congratulations unlocked a new musical odyssey that mirrors the psyches of the band's core duo Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser and exhibits hints of music from the last five decades.
With two revolutionary pop albums under their belt MGMT is primed to continue the touring of 2010 into 2011. MGMT has declared their love for the NZ market by announcing these very special concerts. Why not show them the love in return and catch MGMT live in New Zealand this March.
