Surprise, surprise - another rapper has postponed a New Zealand concert at the last minute.

American hip-hop star Nelly was supposed to be performing at Auckland's Logan Campbell Centre on Wednesday with Rickey Okay, Giantkilla and Dirty Sesh, but the show was today postponed to March.

Promoters blamed "scheduling conflicts" and announced a new date of March 13 in the same venue.

Refunds are available for fans unable to make the new date.


It adds to list of several cancelled hip-hop shows this year, including The Movement festival which was due to be headlined by Nas and 2Chainz, while The Game failed to show for a concert announced at The Powerstation.

Other concerts featuring rappers Big Sean and Joey Bada$$ have gone ahead without any issues, and a major hip-hop festival headlined by Eminem is set to be held at Western Springs in February.
