The National announce NZ show for 2018.

The National continue to prove that they really do indeed love New Zealand, announcing that they will be returning to play a one-off show at Auckland’s Villa Maria Winery on Sunday, February 25th next year.

Tickets for the show go on-sale from midday on Friday, September 1st, with a Ticketmaster pre-sale available from midday on Thursday, August 31st.

Villa Maria Winery is an all-ages venue, and as a special offer to families, one child under 12 is welcome free per a ticketed adult.
"The National were last in the country as the co-headliners of the inaugural Auckland City Limits Festival in March 2016.  They return to play outdoors in one of New Zealand’s most iconic venues.  The stunning natural amphitheatre of Villa Maria’s ancient volcanic crater, nestled amongst the vines, provides a perfect atmosphere for a summer live music experience with a very special band.
This will be The National’s fifth visit to Auckland, where they will perform for a fan base that has truly grown with the band. They first visited in 2008 for an intimate gig at The Kings Arms, followed by three sold-out shows at The Powerstation in 2011, moving up to Vector Arena in 2014, before their New Zealand outdoor debut at Western Springs for Auckland City Limits last year.

One child free with a ticketed adult – the show is a general access show and attendees are encouraged to pack a picnic, bring chairs and blankets to enjoy one of the world’s greatest live bands in the comfort of one of New Zealand’s greatest back yards – Villa Maria Winery."
