Stop what you're doing (particularly if what you're doing is re-watching old Seinfeld episodes for the 33rd time), because Jerry Seinfeld, the man himself, is finally coming to New Zealand. Announced just this morning, the comedian will be gracing our shores with a six-date stand-up tour of Australia and NZ — his first ever visit to New Zealand. Yowsa.
The Seinfeld Live tour will visit Auckland on Saturday, August 12 next year at Vector Arena. So you'll have ample time to rewatch seasons one through nine at least twice.
While Seinfeld hasn't been to NZ before, his first visit to Australia was almost 20 years ago back in 1998, when he toured the country just after the show wrapped. On that visit he called Melbourne the "anus" of the world...so we'll see what he has to say about our fair country.
Seinfeld Live will come to Auckland on Saturday, August 12, 2017. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Monday, November 14 via Ticketmaster.
