Blindspott reform for Kiwi music fest

ONE OFF: Blindspott are reforming for a one-off show at the Homegrown music festival in Wellington in March.

New Zealand metal act Blindspott is reuniting for the all-Kiwi music festival Homegrown, one of three acts reforming to perform at the festival.

Blindspott, who disbanded last year after a successful 10-year career, will join reforming acts Head Like a Hole and Weta at the Homegrown music festival on Wellington's waterfront in March.

The nu-metal act, which featured pin-up Shelton Woolright on drums, had several hits including Nil By Mouth, Phlex and Stay.

But fans shouldn't hold out hope for full Blindspott reunion.

Front man Damian Alexander said the Homegrown performance would be a one-off.

“We’re definitely not reforming but the opportunity to play Vodafone Homegrown amongst such a comprehensive line-up of Kiwi bands was just too good to turn down," he said.


"It will be huge.”

Other bands performing at Homegrown include Fur Patrol, Goodnight Nurse, Elemeno P, Supergroove, OpShop and Concord Dawn.

Homegrown will be held on Wellington's waterfront on March 14.

Tickets are available through
