Santana And The Steve Miller Band Announce Two NZ Shows!

TWO OF THE WORLD’S GREATEST ROCK LEGENDS
ONE NIGHT, ONE STAGE
SANTANA AND THE STEVE MILLER BAND
LIVE IN CONCERT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE : Monday 26th November

Already announced for festivals around the country, Chugg Entertainment are today thrilled to confirm that this coming March will see two of the planet’s biggest rock acts come together in a dynamic double-bill when Santana and Steve Miller Band take the stage.

The two co-headline shows will take place in Christchurch at AMI Stadium on Sunday 17th March and in Auckland on Tuesday 19th March at Vector Arena.

SANTANA
One of the greatest musicians and legendary guitarists of our generation, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Carlos Santana is set to ignite our stages once more. His style defies definition, immediately recognizable yet unlike any other, Santana's fusion of Latin rock, blues, soul and jazz comes in full swing on stage in a way that transcends time and the limits of genre typecasting. Delivered with a level of passion and soul equal to the legendary sonic charge of his guitar, the sound of Carlos Santana is one of the world's best-¬-known musical signatures.

For more than four decades, Carlos Santana has sold more than 90 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won 10 Grammy® Awards, including a record-tying nine for a single project for 1999's Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for "Smooth"). The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame proclaim, "Guitarist Carlos Santana is one of rock's true virtuosos and guiding lights." Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has also been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."

STEVE MILLER BAND
Few musicians can boast the introduction that Miller had to music -- his father who worked as a pathologist was friends with stars like Charles Mingus and Les Paul, whom he brought home as guests; Paul taught the young Miller some guitar chords and let him sit on recording sessions. With a career encompassing distinct stages from one of the top San Francisco blues-rockers during the late 60s and early 70s and then going on to become one of the top selling pop/rock acts of the mid to late 70s and early 80s.

The Steve Miller Band has sold more than 30 million records in a career spanning more than 40 years. His trademark blues-rock sound has made him one of the cornerstone legends of his genre. Award-winning albums like The Joker, Brave New World, Abracadabra and Fly Like An Eagle; and songs like: Gangster Of Love, Rock ‘n Me, Fly Like an Eagle, Jet Airliner, Jungle Love, The Joker, Abracadabra, Livin’ In The USA, Take the Money and Run, and Swingtown have cemented Steve Miller as one of rock music’s all-time greats. His touring schedule to packed out arenas continues without let up.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
