New Zealand's packed summer of music has suffered another casualty with Big Baby D.R.A.M. cancelling his Auckland show.

The Broccoli rapper was scheduled to perform at Auckland's Powerstation on January 10.

But an email sent to ticketholders said he was no longer coming due to "unforeseen circumstances". Full refunds were offered.

That will disappoint anyone who wanted to see songs from Big Baby D.R.A.M, his most recent album.


The show was part of a packed January line-up that includes performances by Kaytranada, SZA, Fleet Foxes, The xx, Joey Bada$$, Vince Staples, Six60, Post Malone, Kelela, Lupe Fiasco, Roger Waters, Boyz II Men and the Laneway Festival.

Earlier this month, the Winery Tour cancelled all 2018 events also citing "unforeseen circumstances".

Music fans have plenty of choice this summer with an international artist playing on average every two days.

This Saturday night alone there are performances by Feist, A$AP Ferg and Shawn Mendes to choose from in Auckland.
