Great sounds of Goodshirt at Auckland Zoo

Auckland Zoo and ASB Bank are proud to present two concerts from their popular ASB ZooMusic summer series as part of the AK05 Auckland Festival.

Revel in the funky sounds of Grey Lynn-based group Goodshirt, when they bring their award-winning music to the zoo on Saturday 26 February (6pm – 9pm).

The four-piece band, who blend rock, pop, and folk with a touch of electronic synth, are the men behind hits such as Sophie, Buck It Up, Green and Fiji Baby.

Goodshirt will be joined by special guests Lucid3, TinPot Guru and The Johnsons. Lucid3 play a combination of blues, funk, rock and pop, which has been likened to the music of Lucious Jackson, Tori Amos, Ani de Franco and Kate Bush.

The final ASBZooMusic concert, by Nesian Mystik on Saturday 5 March, is also part of the AK05 Auckland Festival.

“We are excited to be part of the AK05 Auckland Festival, to offer fabulous live performances in one of Auckland’s most magnificent settings,” says Auckland Zoo’s events co-ordinator, Jackie Sanders. “The ASB Bank has supported the ASBZooMusic series for the second year running, and once again it has been a big success, with top Kiwi acts from such diverse musical genres.”

Most of the animals will still be up in the warmth of the summer evenings, so come early and hang out in Auckland's best park with your family and friends. Bring a picnic, or pre-order a Zoo Hamper from the Visitors’ Centre (phone 09 360 3805), for $30, $45 or $70.

You can also purchase dinner from Darwin's café or the BBQs we'll have set up near the Band Rotunda. Darwin's is licensed, and we'll also have a fully licensed bar set up in the grounds, where a range of Coopers Creek wines will be available.

Tickets for Goodshirt’s concert and other ASBZooMusic events can be pre-purchased through Ticketek, or from the zoo. With limited capacity, and tickets already selling, we recommend advance booking. Tickets: Adults $20, Children (4+yrs) $10, Students and Seniors $15. Ticket prices include admission to the zoo. To find out more about ASBZooMusic, visit www.aucklandzoo.co.nz.

Key Dates: Saturday 26 February (6pm – 9pm) Goodshirt (part of AK05) Saturday 5 March (6pm – 9pm) Nesian Mystik (part of AK05)
