Top concerts in Auckland 2020

If you had Elton John tickets for his Auckland shows this week, you’ll have to pack away your glittery glasses for next year. Just when we thought the iconic performer was still standing, he’s announced illness has forced him to postpone the concerts to January 2021. If you need a good sing along to get you through the next 300 or so days, here’s our list of the top concerts in Auckland for 2020. 


March 6 – Spark Arena

For a band of 50-somethings that have been around since the 80s, the Pixies certainly still know how to put on a killer performance.

The National

April 4 and 5 – Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre

What some would describe as depressing, National fans would describe as profound and emotive. Despite their big following, this understated indie rock band will this time be playing in the intimate Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre (previously known as ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre).

Tame Impala

April 16 – Spark Arena

With a genre known as ‘psyche-rock’, Tame Impala shows are described as euphoric and hypnotic. Which basically means it’ll be down right fun. They’re sort of a big deal these days – after headlining Glastonbury and Coachella in 2019, the Aussie band are visiting Auckland this April.

Alanis Morissette

April 21 – Spark Arena

Iconic 90’s sensation Alanis Morissette is embarking on a world tour celebrating 25 years of ‘Jagged Little Pill’. Does that make you feel old? If you need a refresher, hits from the album included ‘Hand in my pocket’ ‘Ironic’ and ‘You Oughta Know’.

Patti Smith

April 27 and 28 – Auckland Town Hall 

Patti Smith, dubbed ‘The Godmother of Punk’ will be hitting the stage at the charming Town Hall this April.   

Backstreet Boys

May 16 and 17 – Spark Arena

They’ve had 20 years between number one hits, but Backstreet’s back with their DNA album tour. Enjoy a blast from the past and some ultimate sing along anthems this May.

Bon Iver

June 7 – Trusts Arena

Indie rock band Bon Iver are returning to our shores for the first time in 8 years. Their complex instrumentals, drama and creativity make Bon Iver one to watch live. 

Rod Stewart

Nov 14, Mission Estate, Napier

If you’re looking to fill the Elton void with an iconic, 70-something, equally eccentric performance Rod Stewart might be your man. Stewart will be skipping an Auckland show, but we won’t complain about travelling to rock out at the picturesque Mission Estate.
