Radical hip-hop act Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All will still tour New Zealand despite Auckland council claiming they are off the Big Day out bill.

Gay and lesbian protesters offended by the group’s homophobic lyrics protested to Auckland City Council over the inclusion of the group on the event.

Auckland City Council appealed to Big Day Out owner Ken West who removed the act from the Big Day Out Auckland line-up but he is still planning sideshows for the group in New Zealand.

In a statement at the Big Day Out website he writes:

“Hi Everyone,
“The Auckland City Council has jumped the gun, leaking that Odd Future will no longer be appearing at the Auckland Big Day Out due to lobbyist groups.

“We are currently in discussions with Odd Future and will be announcing their own solo show for Auckland in the coming weeks.

“This does not affect Australia. Last time they played for the government at Vivid!”

Regards,

Ken West
 Big Day Out
