After sell-out shows in the North, there’s no turning back as The Narcs take their Unplugged Tour to the south this December – playing one show at Wanaka’s Bar No.8 (formerly The Gin and Raspberry Boutique Bar). This is a Seated Concert Showcase where the band pulls back the veil, strips things down and explores the many hidden songs from The Narcs' back catalogue and side projects - as well as the hits.
From playing their first gig in Christchurch in 1980, the band has had a slew of radio and video hits including “Heart and Soul”, “Lazy Susan”, “Diamonds on China” and “Abandoned By Love”. The Narcs’ recording legacy includes three studio albums: “The Great Divide” (1984), “The Narcs” (1986) and “Push The Boat Out” (1996), and a compilation “Best of The Narcs” (2002).
More recently, 2018 saw the band release two new singles/videos Summerhill Stone and Not Over, appear at Canterbury’s Selwyn Sounds, and tour with Psuedo Echo. 2019 has seen their Not Over Summer Tour, headlining Nelson’s Marchfest and playing a series of The Narcs Unplugged gigs. In 2020 the band will celebrate their 40th anniversary kicking off with more unplugged shows over summer and sharing the stage with Australia’s Icehouse as part of the Platinum Sounds Series.
