Announced mere minutes ago, N*E*R*D will perform right here in Auckland at Vector Arena on 26 February 2009. This blogger has been a fan of N*E*R*D ever since Lapdance (video above) came out in 2001, but Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams have been working together as producers since 1994. The pair have produced tracks for artists as varied as Justin Timberlake, No Doubt, Mariah Carey and Britney Spears.
Pharrell is just as well known outside the record business for his clothing label Billionaire Boys Club, footwear brand Ice Cream and collaborations with Louis Vuitton. Little known fact: the baby faced Pharrell is actually 35 years old. What he does to stay looking so fresh is unknown…perhaps making mad beats keeps you young?
Tickets will go on sale Monday 10t November at Ticket Master.
