New Zealand Puts A Ban On Odd Future

by | 13th, February 2014



BANDS are forever being banned from various countries. One thing seems to be more prevalent than others these acts are usually hip hop outfits.

And again, New Zealand immigration authorities have decided to ban Odd Future from entering the country. Why? They have come to the conclusion that they’re a threat to public order.

Who knew that New Zealand was jumpier than China?

Odd Future were all set to play an open-air concert with Eminem on Saturday in Auckland, but Border Operations Manager Karen Urwin said authorities decided to decline the group’s visas after becoming aware of a 2011 incident in Boston in which some witnesses claimed group members incited fans to attack police officers.

“It’s not a decision we take lightly and not one that happens often,” Urwin said.

So this is what happens when an Odd Future show is closed down by the police. As the video shows, it is fantastically uneventful.
