Rei - The Matariki Tour - Tauranga
Mata ‘Eyes’ Ariki : ‘High Chief or God’ : MATARIKI
This upcoming 8 date tour is in celebration of Matariki, the Māori New Year and to showcase Rei’s latest album Ariki. Traveling through Aotearoa, from Tāmaki to Te Wai Pounamu, Rei can’t wait to share his waiata kanikani (dance music) and party with the people.
His last tour was for his award-winning album ‘The Bridge’. Always in mahi hard mode, Rei has dropped 3 new albums since then, played across the world, won 3 Māori music awards, earning millions of streams and radio hits since this tour… but nothing beats performing to your home country. Rei’s Matariki tour will start with local support acts, followed by Rei’s full high energy set, topped off with a DJ set featuring remixed te reo music.

End of Year Student Concert | That's a wrap
And that is a wrap team... 2019 done and dusted. Everyone jumped up on stage yesterday and smashed it out of the park. It is not easy getting up in front of a venue full of people and putting it out there. We are so proud of all of MauaoPAC's students for a very entertaining afternoon @ TOTARA ST.
L.A.B sell out three back to back shows!
For the first time since TOTARA ST's inception we have three back to back shows with the same artist. Almost like a mini residency so to speak! L.A.B are bringing some serious heat to the table this April with three sold out shows back to back. Hailing from the Bay of Plenty, the locals are coming out to play. Tickets sold in record time and everyone who snagged one is in for a very special treat, this band has been on a steady rise after releasing their first self titled album in November 2017.
