Your 2020 Matariki events
Matariki is rising next month, with the star cluster appearing in our skies from July 13 and bringing with it the Māori New Year. The Matariki ...
Spark Arena will turn into a giant pub for one night of beer-spilling pub rock for the Biggest Pub Gig in the World, as five of New Zealand’s best-known pub bands will flood the stage with rip roaring anthems.
You ain’t seen nothin’ like this unless you were hanging around The Windsor, The Mon, The Gluepot or a ton of other great pub gigs a few years back. On Friday 11 December, bars will come onto the Spark Arena floor, the stage might just be a bit lower and the sound will be turned up loud enough to act as a perfect tonic for the year we’re having. The whole production will look like something that’s just stepped out of the eighties - big, bold, but not very technical. Just turn it on and turn it up.
Tickets are on sale now, and all five bands have been announced. Get ready to drink yourself more bliss with Th' Dudes, who are joining the Biggest Pub Gig in the World for their final show ever, as well as pub heroes Citizen Band, Jordan Luck Band, Hello Sailor and Hammond Gamble. Tickets are $89.90, but this one is too good not to sell out, so get in fast.
This will be a gig like no other, so snag yourself a ticket while the going's good.
