When the Cat’s Away – Dunedin

April 28 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Following the massive success of last year’s concert by New Zealand’s most cherished supergroup When The Cat’s Away, the gals will embark on a four-venue tour this April and May.

With mega hits including Melting Pot and Asian Paradise, the four original members of this Hall of Fame group Debbie Harwood, Annie Crummer, Dianne Swann and Kim Willoughby will perform in Christchurch, Wellington, Dunedin and return to Aucklandby popular demand over four weekends, beginning on 14 April.

The concerts will see them reunited with their old friends Herbs whose hits like French Letter and Nuclear Waste provided the soundtrack to the anti-nuclear movement in the 80s expressed through the joy and unifying medium of beautiful music. Annie Crummer’s hit See What Love Can Do featured Herbs on vocals and permanently linked the bands who had become champions of the people in the eighties.

Fast-forward almost 40 years and these two bands maintain legions of fans and are classed as national treasures. Tickets to this historic tour – the first in three decades by the originals – go on sale today via Ticketek and Ticketmaster. Going by the speed in which the October concert sold, fans are urged to move quickly to avoid delay.

The event will also feature original members of the When the Cat’s Away backing band, Brett Adams and Gary Verberne on guitars, Mike Russell on trumpet and Holidaymakers’ maestro Barbara Griffin on keys, as well as The Band of Gold.
