Armageddon Expo Auckland 2014

Post by Buzz Bumble »

The Armageddon Expo is in Auckland again on 24-27 October, 2014 at the ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane.

I can't see any Star Wars actors, but Stargate actor Richard Dean Anderson is on the list ... he's now 64 years old, which will make MacGyver fans feel old. Also scheduled is Matt Frewer, who has appeared in numerous movies, TV shows and voiced many animated characters.

Some of those currently on the list to appear are:
  • Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, SGU Stargate Universe)
  • Matt Frewer (Max Headroom, Orphan Black, Falling Skies, Eureka, ...)
  • Michael Hogan (Battlestar Galactica reboot)
  • Jacqueline Samuda (Stargate SG-1)
  • Suanne Braun (Stargate SG-1)
  • Peter Williams (Stargate SG-1)
  • Cliff Simon (Stargate SG-1)
  • David Hewlett (Stargate Atlantis)
  • Graham McTavish (The Hobbit, Outlander)
  • AJ Buckley (Supernatural, CSI:NY)
  • Travis Wester (Supernatural)
  • DJ Qualls (Supernatural)
  • Kelly Hu (X-Men 2, Arrow)
  • Helen Slater (Supergirl, Smallville))
  • Jusdon Scott (Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan)
  • Mira Furlan (Babylon 5, Lost)
Tickets on sale from 1 August through iTicket.

More details at ArmageddonExpo.com.



On a side-note, Mythbusters Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage are also coming to Auckland for their Behind the Myths live science show at Vector Arena on 6 September, 2014. There are two shows that day and tickets are on pre-sale from 9:00am, Friday, 11 July and on public sale on Monday, 14 July.

I can't find an 'official' announcement, but it is about the 13:20 mark in this vid.

Not a good start for me. No lights, no foot traffic, 100db noise from league of legends stand. My throat is red raw from shouting to the few customers I did get. Not impressed.
