Havoc and Newsboy's Sell-Out Tour - Gay Man's Rock

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1999

Irreverent 90s youth show hosts Mikey Havoc and Jeremy ‘Newsboy’ Wells went on the road in this hit series. Down south they infamously outed Gore as the “gay capital of New Zealand”. While many viewers had a laugh at the Auckland duo’s lampooning of small town conservatism, some took the bait and were not amused by Newsboy's “gay man’s Gore” moniker, preferring to tout the town’s trout fishing, line-dancing and country music. The mischievous pair also visit Dunedin, Fox Glacier and Queenstown, where they 'promote' attractions and meet base jumper Chuck Berry.

God help them if I ever see them again. If they come back they will be brandished with barbed wire and run out of town by our ageing population.
– Mayor Ogg’s warning to the pair, in a local newspaper
