Stone Roses To Play Auckland

press release:


Solid Entertainment, Vector Arena and Future Music Proudly Present

The Stone Roses Vector Arena, Auckland on Tuesday February 26

2012 saw the eagerly anticipated return of The Stone Roses. One of the most critically acclaimed acts of all time, the legendary four piece re-arrived in spectacular style with a summer of sold out headline shows and festivals that saw the Manchester band mesmerize one million live music fans across Europe and Asia.

Following the press conference that announced their reformation on October 18th 2011, the ground breaking British band entered the record books with the fastest selling rock concerts in UK history when their Manchester comeback shows sold 220,000 tickets in 68 minutes!

2013 will see the classic band line-up of Ian Brown, John Squire, Mani (aka Gary Mounfield) and Reni (aka Alan Wren) playing live together in New Zealand for the very first time.

The UK band, whose eponymous 1989 debut album is widely considered to be one of the greatest albums of all time, will appear at Vector Arena, Auckland on Tuesday February 26th 2013.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
