Friday Jams Live | New Zealand’s biggest ever RnB party is coming to town!

Illusive Presents, Frontier Touring and ZM are proud to present, for the first time ever in New Zealand, a brand new RNB party: the colossal FRIDAY JAMS LIVE is heading our way for one massive show in October! *AIRHORN*

On 22nd October, ZM’s favourite RNB show Friday Jams levels up for one epic party. Featuring an absolute stacked line-up of Craig David Presents TS5, NE-YO, Sean Paul, Kelis, Mario and hosted by ultimate hype man Fatman Scoop, this will be your one chance to see musical royalty gracing the stage, performing all their crowd favourites and timeless anthems.

‘Friday Jams has seen incredible growth to date, and it’s only early days. Starting as a three hour feature on ZM a little over a year ago, Friday Jams has quickly grown in to a monster; Taking over New Zealand workplace radios every Friday, expanding to an iHeart Radio Channel and New Zealand #1 album.

We’re incredibly excited to bring this show to the stage and put on the biggest RNB throwback party New Zealand has ever seen.’
Ross Flahive, ZM Content Director


Selling over 8 million albums worldwide, Friday Jams Live 2017 welcomes British superstar Craig David. Rising to stardom in his teens with his debut album Born To Do It earning multi-platinum status, the Grammy nominated singer-songwriter will bring his DJ house party extravaganza Craig David Presents TS5 to New Zealand for the first time!
The exhilarating live DJ and vocal set up has been performed across the globe at some of the world’s biggest parties including Glastonbury, Wireless Festival, Ibiza Rocks and London’s iconic O2. David will bring all the ‘flava’ to the stage with his iconic tunes including the likes of ‘7 Days’, ‘Walking Away’, ‘What’s Your Flava’ and ‘Re-rewind’.

2017 is the Year of the Gentleman, the ‘One In A Million’ Ne-Yo will be heading Down Under for Friday Jams Live 2017. One of the most sophisticated and sought-after songwriters in the industry, Ne-Yo has collaborated with acts like ScHoolboy Q, T.I, Juicy J, Calvin Harris and Wiz Khalifa.
Ne-Yo will treat audiences to his sexy and smooth tunes like ‘So Sick’, ‘Miss Independent’, ‘Closer’ and ‘Let Me Love You’ plus recent party anthem, ‘Time Of Our Lives’ feat. Pitbull. Ne-Yo comes equipped with a full live band for his exclusive set at Friday Jams Live and no doubt, with a few surprises up his sleeve!

Grammy-winning reggae aficionado Sean Paul and his full live band will be bringing his swag of jams performing with full live band, ‘No Lie’. The perfect blend of Paul’s distinctive voice, hypnotic rhythms and first class production is showcased in hits ‘Breathe’ featuring Blu Cantrell, ‘Temperature’, ‘Gimme The Light’ and ‘Get Busy’ plus the latest #1 hit ‘Rockabye’. The multi-platinum selling, Jamaican native is guaranteed to make your ‘Body’ move!

The reason behind all the boys in the yard, Kelis is joining the jam-packed list of RNB royalty.
From her Grammy-nominated mega hit ‘Milkshake’, to sizzling, sassy anthems like ‘Millionaire’, ‘Trick Me’ and latest release ‘Who’s Lovin’ You’, Kelis needs no apology for being ‘Bossy’

Thinking ‘I Need More’? Look no further! Mario will be joining the line-up of prodigious RNB icons this October. Staying hot on our radar since 2002s breakout hit ‘Just A Friend’ to the ultra-smooth, award winning single ‘Let Me Love You’ and soul smashing ‘How Do I Breathe’ and most recently collaborated on legendary Australian hip hop group Bliss n Eso’s ‘Believe’,  the Baltimore singer will be bringing his best moves, it’s time to Step Up.

Finally, Friday Jams Live 2017 would not be complete without icon Fatman Scoop (‘Be Faithful’) who will be our very special host across the night!

Friday Jams Live 2017 will bring state of the art production and stage design making this concert a glorious 5-hour certified concert spectacular!
