Bowie: Waiting In The Sky – ASB Theatre (Concert Review)

BowieEddie Rayner and a team of all-star Kiwi musicians paid tribute to the music of David Bowie last night at Auckland’s ASB Theatre. Liz Gunn was there…here is her review along with photos by Ivan Karczewski:

Last night, Auckland’s Aotea Centre celebrated a memorable life, a musical giant. A huge crowd of all ages- from the early 20’s couple laughing and dancing next to me, to the almost 70 year old rocker with a shock of dyed red hair and wearing a Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence T shirt- came out in force to celebrate, with some of Kiwi music’s most talented, the musical heritage of the inimitable David Bowie.

The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band – ASB Theatre (Concert Review)

DSC_3533There was a time when the Mick Fleetwood blues band was indeed Fleetwood Mac. When the venerable outfit got its start in 1967 they were at the front of the British blues scene, with guitarist Peter Green at the helm. Peter Green wasn’t around last night at the ASB Theatre, but his songs certainly were, with Mick Fleetwood and company dipping into the Peter Green songbook early and often.
