Cheese on Toast has yet to receive any ‘official’ information but Public Address’s Russell Brown tweeted and 95bFM facebooked that Saturday night’s KRS-One show has shifted from The Cloud to The Studio.
bFM reports “KRS-ONE show tomorrow has moved to STUDIO on K’Rd due to licencing & noise issues at the Cloud. New start time 7pm. All under 18 tickets will be refunded. Tickets sales have almost reached capacity for Studio so if you’ve been holding off on buying, don’t drag ya feet! KRS-ONE has also decided to hold a seminar on Sunday Apr 22nd, more details to come…”
Dub dot Dash report an official statement from concert promoters :
Due to major issues with the Cloud we have decided to move our event to Studio, K RD Auckland.
There are strict sound restrictions that could affect our show with KRS ONE and licensing issues which have recently come to our to attention that does not help us to proceed with this event at the Cloud due to the Police not approving our license because of their negative view on “RAP MUSIC” being at the Cloud.
We are annoyed but still happy to move forward with the KRS ONE show this Saturday at The STUDIO which will now start at 7pm. We apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused. We will need to REFUND ALL UNDER THE AGE OF 18 ticket holders, the Studio are unable to have underage patrons in the venue for this event. We have cut back on tickets available and we are nearly at full capacity, We have searched for venues across Auckland with a larger capacity but had no luck at all!. So we apologize for the fans they may miss out an opportunity to see the HIP HOP legend “KRS ONE”.
