Performance legends appear on small screen

Media Release February 26, 2013

Performance legends appear on small screen

KISS, Queen, Kylie Minogue, ACDC and Bon Jovi and other top acts perform on Face Television (Auckland UHF Channel 41, Sky 089) in a new series kicking off on Friday, March 8 at 8:30pm.


“The Tribute Show” features tributes of modern and classic bands you will swear are the real deal.

Some of these performers spend thousands of dollars to get the right sound and “look” down to makeup and costumes then even to backup singers, dancers and staging. Several acts are so credible that they go on to their own international stardom in full-time touring “tribute shows”.

“The Tribute Show” that screens on Face Television evolved from an idea developed by Australians Jon Powers and Nick Missailidis who were working together on another TV show.

Jon Powers had become known as a tribute performer while Nick Missailidis had worked on a cruise ship, which featured a plethora of impersonator bands and performers among its on-board entertainment line-up. Together Powers and Missailidis developed the idea of a television programme featuring such performances.

Shortly after Nick was filming an event that featured entertainer and comedian Tony Lewis who was performing as Jerry Lewis. Lewis’ performance was so good that Nick immediately called Jon and suggested he see this outstanding performance.

When Jon saw Tony perform, the three unanimously agreed they had found their host and the three set off to create the unique entertainment programme that has become “The Tribute Show”

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>>
