Who is Fox Livingstone?

Felicity McDonnell is Fox Livingstone, rockstar extraordinaire. Battling with prescription drug addiction and the ghosts of past glories Fox Livingstone emerges from his hallucinatory hell to perform world famous covers of rocks greatest hits….LIVE at Bats.

He hasn’t been seen for a while. He hasn’t recorded anything for a while- thirty years to be exact. He’s gained a few pounds. He doesn’t go out. Ever.

The music press now speak of him in the past tense, say he’s washed up, drugged up, over.

Ladies and gentlemen, he’s not over.

Far from it.

“I wish he wrote the damn thing himself he did it far more justice than I ever did.. ”Blondie (Heart of Glass)

Come and experience the legend that is Fox Livingstone, live and direct from BATS Theatre, Wellington, for 10 shows only.

“The Most Important Musician Alive. In the World” Rod Rodrigous, Promoter Rio

“Last Ever Live Performance. Alive. Ever” .Freddy Otter, Manager.

“The man simply refuses to die..”. Dr Barney Sullivan, M.D Cedars Sinai.
