No longer available

Great Hall, Auckland Town Hall


Auckland Arts Festival/Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki is pleased to announce the rescheduling of this performance to Wednesday 7 April, 8pm at Auckland Town Hall.

As this is a change of venue, all ticket holders will be issued with new tickets and their original tickets will no longer be valid. Ticket prices remain the same across all reserves and we will do our best to relocate you to an area similar to your original seats. Please note that seating will be arranged in the standard Town Hall configuration. We unfortunately aren’t able to recreate the table and bleacher seating at our Civic Club.

If you have purchased tickets from the box office or outlet your new tickets will be available for collection from the box office on the night. Please remember to take your order number and a form of Photo ID.


If you are unable to attend the rescheduled show you can apply for a full refund, all refund requests should be submitted in writing to Ticketmaster. We kindly ask that you submit refund requests within 14 days of notification. 


Beyond comparison. Beyond genre. Beyond dispute.

Nick Cave pens love eulogies that’ll sink you to your knees, performs like a revivalist, croons like a drunk, weeps like a banshee, mocks like the devil. His undisputed musical genius has been drip-fed to the world over decades.

Originally devised to celebrate Cave’s 60th birthday in 2017, singer-songwriter Reb Fountain’s stunning tribute show returns by popular demand – and this time, she weaves her own Cave-esque songs into the mix. Alongside her band – including collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Dave Khan – Reb is joined by New Zealand’s premier string quartet, The Black Quartet. Together, they channel the raucous, brazen wisdom and beauty of Cave’s musical legacy.


“There is intensity to [Reb’s] performance that makes her mesmerising to watch.”
