Shihad 30th anniversary tour


The Rock Presents Shihad 30th Anniversary Tour

To celebrate 30 years, Shihad will be undertaking a national tour across New Zealand.

They will be joined by Kora in Hamilton, Auckland and Mt Maunganui.

releasing their classic LP The General Electric, also celebrating twenty years since its release, on vinyl for the first time. The General Electric was the LP that re-established their position as sonic giants of the music industry, with hit singles ‘My Mind’s Sedate’, ‘The General Electric’, ‘Pacifier’.

Since 1988, Shihad have survived a name change propelled by Jihad becoming a staple negative reference in the global vernacular thanks to 9/11 (Shihad became Pacifier, and returned to Shihad), personal triumphs and tragedies, travelled all over the world with endless tours, selling out headline shows and sharing stages at major local and international festivals, and touring with musical heroes like Motorhead, Metallica, Faith No More and AC/DC to name a few!  In 2010 they were inducted into the New Zealand Music’s Hall Of Fame. And just like Neil Finn, Russell Crowe and every other successful person or idea to come out of NZ…. Australia quickly adopted them as their own, showering them with ARIA nominations, adoration and ownership of their global success.
