Rapper The Game has announced a New Zealand show later this year, but if past efforts are to go by, we'll be lucky if he shows up.
The Compton gangsta rapper, known for hits like How We Do and Standing on Ferraris, is scheduled to perform at the Logan Campbell Centre on September 25.
It's part of a tour behind what's billed as his tenth and final album, Westside Story.
Promoters Tour Squad say it will be "the final chapter for The Game and the last chance for fans to see the rapper in his full glory".
The Game promises to bring "a live band, hype men and DJ to perform the new singles from the new album along with many of his older hits".
But judging by previous efforts to get the rapper to New Zealand, promoters - who the Herald has approached for comment - have a tough time ahead of them.
At his first scheduled New Zealand concert in 2009, The Game was a no-show at a hip-hop festival called Roc the Bloc, featuring Sisqo, Pitbull and Akon, with no explanation given for his no-show.
He did appear for a 2012 gig at Vector Arena, but spent much of his time on stage "scowling, berating the crowd and massaging his own ego by boasting about his achievements".
A Herald critic wrote: "At times, the man born Jayceon Taylor downed most of a bottle of spirits, taunted a little person who was dancing on stage, swore at members of his entourage , groped female fans and told the crowd off for talking during a Nate Dogg memorial."
But he failed to appear the following year for a show at The Powerstation, after releasing a bizarre promotional video in which he promised, in a mock Australian accent, that: "Auckland, it's going to get real awkward".
And he didn't even make it to New Zealand to play last year's Raggamuffin festival, when a war of words broke out over what had happened.
The Game said he was turned back to America after being "denied at customs".
Raggamuffin promoters issued an apology, saying: "The Game was 100 per cent approved to enter New Zealand. His management and I know this as fact. We honestly believed The Game would honour his obligations to our festival and it was only when we had our people at the airport on Saturday to pick him up to play Raggamuffin IX did we find out he did not board the plane in Dubai. Statements to the contrary are simply not true."
The Game is also billed to play five Australian shows as part of his Australasian tour.
