Guns N ‘Roses will be the first international group to perform at Eden Park.

The band are excited to play a great stadium show for New Zealand fans and said in a statement: “New Zealand, we can’t wait to see you bigger and better next summer!”

After rescheduling their tour dates to 2021, Guns N ‘Roses are set to rock Auckland with a three-hour set on Saturday, December 10, 2022.

The group’s Wellington tour date has been postponed to Thursday, December 8, 2022, and current ticket holders are urged to keep their tickets as they will remain valid and fans will be seated in one location.

Guns N ‘Roses were scheduled to play a show in Dunedin, but in a press release this morning the promoter said it could not be rescheduled.

To sweeten the blow for South Island fans, Dunedin ticket holders will have access to a special presale from Friday October 1 at 10 a.m. to Sunday October 3 at 10 p.m.

Developer TEG Dainty has said it will work with relevant authorities and site operators to develop and implement Covid security plans.

Tickets for Auckland’s Eden Park show go on sale at 10 a.m. on Thursday, October 7.

Six60’s Historic Eden Park Show

A New Zealand group made history by being the first to play in the famous sports stadium; with the only other musical performances out there limited to small group cameos before and after sporting events.

Six60 performed in front of a crowd of 50,000 in April after campaigning for Eden Park to be allowed to let the event take place.

Previously, a minority of residents formally opposed this prospect.

But earlier this year, the board managed to secure consent for up to six concerts over a 12-month period.

Concerts can take place on weekdays, Saturdays, Sundays preceding a public holiday and public holidays, subject to restrictions in frequency, duration and schedule.

Public hearings were held late last year and three independent commissioners reviewed evidence from the Eden Park Trust and the authors, which included expert assessments from technical specialists, before making their decision. They concluded that the identified negative effects can be adequately avoided or mitigated if carried out in accordance with detailed consent conditions.

A large number of submissions were received upon request with 2,966 in support and 180 in opposition.
