Like many artists do to win the hearts of Kiwi fans, Post Malone drank beer from a shoe.
Mid-way through his show at Auckland’s Western Springs Outerfields, the American singer-songwriter ripped out a shoey after a fan chucked one of their kicks on stage.
After giving it a sniff, Post ranked the shoe a 4/10 before he poured the beer from his red party cup into it. “Just go?” he asked, and just go he did.
“I taste hints of oak,” he said after the shoe was empty. “A little strawberry, it’s very good. Good shoe. I bump you up to a 6/10 sir. Thank you.”
Drinking alcohol mixed with the foot sweat of a complete stranger wasn’t the only time Post proved he’s a man of the people.
Just ask Daniel, a massive fan, evidenced by the massive tattoo he’s got of Post on his back. Daniel got to hop on stage with his favourite artist to show off the tattoo and even get it signed by the man himself.
Post freaked out when saw the ink before taking a sharpie and signing his name on Dan’s back.
“Make some fucking noise for Daniel too tonight, with probably the handsomest tattoo in this building” the artist said, to which the crowd obliged,
It seems by all accounts that Post loves New Zealand and New Zealanders love him right back. He even brought a Kiwi guitarist from the crowd on stage to play with him and she killed it.
Earlier this year he opened for the Red Hot Chili Peppers show and was even wearing an ‘I ❤️ Auckland’ shirt as he smiled through his set, even smashing a guitar for good measure.
Good on the bloke for getting involved in a Kiwi tradition and treating his biggest fans to unforgettable moments.
