The Kings Arms

An Auckland institution: live music venue, heritage pub, affordable eatery

The Kings Arms is a bar, an authentic rock music venue, an affordable eatery and an unpretentious no fuss pub experience with a sun-drenched beer garden smack bang in the centre of town.

The Underground

All the best bits both modern and classic from the Brit Rock invasion and a couple of cheeky Oirish ones thrown in from this 3 piece all-Brit, Nelson based band of accomplished musicians showcasing great British music from the likes of The Cure, The Jam, The Police, The Clash, Stereophonics, The Cult, Billy Idol, The Who and many more..

The Underground have fast established themselves as a firm favourite on the Nelson scene as “a breath of fresh air” and “not just another cover band” from fans or as one Nelson event manager puts it “you just don’t get bands playing this sort of music in NZ”.

They now bring their show to The Kings Arms for their first trip to Auckland and drummer Joe Tatley sums up the bands excitement “When we first discussed playing outside Nelson there was only one venue we wanted to play and that we hoped would get the whole idea. What better place to showcase the music that defined a generation and the music of our youth than the iconic Kings Arms, it’s certainly a place that people take pride in playing and we are extremely grateful for the opportunity to share with Auckland in what will be a fantastic night”

If you are fan of British rock music then lock The Underground in your diary and don’t be the ones on Monday wishing you had!!
