Eccles Entertainment and Mediaworks bring you original kiwi hitmaker Dave Dobbyn playing this September at Auckland’s The Cauldron at Spark Arena!
Dave Dobbyn and full band, with the addition of a horn section, 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’, ‘You 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. For those who wish to sit, all seats in the bowl have a perfect vantage point of the stage. Tickets start at $49.90 (+ booking fees) for the GA Floor, $59.90 (+ booking fees) for B Reserve seating and $69.90 (+ booking fees) for A Reserve seating.
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 release of their second album ‘Honest Woman’. In 2018, their debut album picked up the Taite Music Prize for Best Independent Debut Album.
