Presented by Pato Entertainment, the singer, songwriter and rapper will perform at Stampede Bar in Auckland on Wednesday, September 28 and The Local Tavern in Hamilton on Thursday, September 29.

Born in Miami, Florida and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Sean Kingston was just a teenager when he was discovered on MySpace, triggering a major-label bidding war. After that the international hits flowed thick and fast – ‘Beautiful Girls’ (which sampled the Ben E. King classic ‘Stand By Me’ and topped the charts all over the world, including New Zealand), ‘Fire Burning’, ‘Face Drop’, ‘Letting Go (Dutty Love)’ featuring Nicki Minaj, to name but just a few.

Sean Kingston’s third album BACK 2 LIFE was released in 2014 and featured a host of big hitters from Chris Brown and Wiz Khalifa, to Busta Rhymes and 2 Chainz.

He’s set to release his fourth record, and has teased followers with a string of singles ‘One A Way’, ‘Thank Me’ and ‘All I Got’. Now, Kiwi fans will be among the first in the world to hear the new music from one of the most exciting artists in hip-hop.

Earlybird $50 tickets go on sale at on Wednesday, September 7 at 7pm for just 24 hours. After that the price increases to $60. A support act will be announced soon, so stay tuned.
