Solid Gold Saturday wraps up with sixties

7 March 2005

Solid Gold Saturday wraps up with sixties celebration

The finale of the Solid Gold Saturday series takes a step back in time on Saturday 19 March to prove that the SIXTIES ROCKZ.

The free concert, which is part of Auckland City’s Music in Parks series, features Celine Toner and Shane with The Saints, Charlotte Johansen and Maximiliano. It kicks off at 5.30pm in Maungawhau Mt Eden’s beautiful natural amphitheatre, Tahaki Reserve.

New Zealand rock icons Shane and The Saints will be performing all the hits of the 60s with special guest Celine Toner, fresh from her Australasia tour as vocalist with the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. An energy packed show, it will include favourites from Lulu, Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Mamas and the Papas, Cliff Richard, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones…and of course, Shane’s number one smash hit – “Saint Paul”.

Also performing for the crowds will be songwriter and guitarist Charlotte Johansen, who has been making waves with the New Zealand public for a couple of years now. Charlotte had a taste of international success last year when she was invited to play the biggest annual music event in Canada, North by North East. She is now back home doing what she enjoys, performing live.

Topping off this great rock n roll line up is Maximiliano, who first played live when he was just 14 years old to an audience of 15,000. Maximiliano moved to New Zealand from Brazil a few years ago and has been wowing audiences here with his talent ever since. The highlight of his career to date has been playing support to George Benson, who recently visited Auckland.

This SIXTIES ROCKZ concert is not to be missed, so grab some food and friends and head over to Mt Eden to be entertained by some first class music. Check out www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/mips for more details or listen to Solid Gold 93.4 FM.

The Solid Gold Saturday concerts are just some of more than 60 free events provided by Auckland City, in association with Radioworks and supported by The Endeavour Charitable Trust. They are all part of the Ak@Play summer events programme.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
