Eccles Entertainment and Mediaworks regret to announce that due to current COVID-19 Alert Level 2.5 status in Auckland the stand-alone Dave Dobbyn concert.
A practical decision has been made by promoter Eccles Entertainment to delay announcing a new show date until Auckland and the rest of New Zealand are back in COVID-19 Alert Level 1. “As soon as we move to COVID-19 Alert Level 1 we will announce a new show date. We hope to present Dave Dobbyn on stage at The Cauldron, Spark Arena in October 2020” – Brent Eccles.
All tickets that have been purchased to the concert on Saturday 12th September 2020 remain totally valid to the yet to be announced new date.
As it stands all seats have sold out and there are extremely limited GA tickets left available. This show WILL go ahead as soon as socially possible. Fans are advised to please hold on to their tickets to ensure attendance to the show!
Dave Dobbyn and full band will take the stage to play through a selection of homegrown anthems and rarities.
Over the last 40 years Dave has written some of NZ’s best-known songs - ‘Beside You’, ‘Be Mine Tonight’, ‘Language’, ‘Outlook For Thursday’, ‘Loyal’, ‘Whaling’, ‘Kingdom Come’, ‘It Dawned On Me’, ‘Guilty’, ‘Devil You Know’, ‘Slice Of Heaven’, ‘Magic, what she do’, ‘Oughta Be In Love’, ‘Welcome Home’ and many more from Th’ Dudes, DD Smash and his prolific solo career.
With a career that spans decades and appeals to all ages, Dave Dobbyn is consistently carving a new path and crossing boundaries with his personalized approach to making music for the people.
The Cauldron mode at Spark Arena offers something for everyone, with a party floor and intimate seated theatre experience. The GA standing floor gives access to three sides of the stage, offering a unique ‘side of stage’ experience for those who arrive early, and guests on the floor will have direct access to bars located inside the arena itself.
Milly Tabak and her extraordinary band The Miltones (Liam Pratt, Chip Matthews, Guy Harrison and Tom Broome) will be joined for this special show at The Cauldron by powerhouse singers Sandy Mill and Michael Murray!
Since forming in 2014, Milly and her 4-piece band The Miltones have been turning heads with their live performances including a stand-out set at WOMAD. The support slot comes just after the release of second album ‘Honest Woman’. Their debut album picked up the Taite Music Prize for Best Independent Album.
