Blindspott sent New Zealanders into a frenzy in August, when The Rock announced that the multi-platinum selling band was getting back together for a one-off show in celebration of The Rock 1500 countdown.
But now due to popular demand, Blindspott are hitting the road for a string of shows.
Presented by Storm The Gates, they will play Logan Campbell in Auckland on December 8; The Foundry in Christchurch on December 14; Coroglen Tavern near Whitianga on December 26; Trafalgar Centre in Nelson on December 27; and Mount Park at The Mount on December 30.
Hamilton metallers Devilskin will be special guests at all shows, bar Christchurch.
Blindspott infamously split in 2007, after 10 years together in which they garnered much critical acclaim, a hugely devoted fan-base as well as enduring a few well-publicised fall-outs.
Their first two albums - 2003’s self-titled BLINDSPOTT and 2006’s END THE SILENCE topped the charts and established the band as one of the most respected and revered rock bands in Kiwi music history. Their hits, such as ‘Nil By Mouth’, ‘Room To Breathe’, ‘Phlex’ are still blasted on rock radio to this day, with this year’s The Rock 1500 boasting no less than 9 songs from Blindspott.
