Beastwars 'Blood Becomes Fire - November Tour

BEASTWARS

BLOOD BECOMES FIRE

NOVEMBER TOUR

With feedback still ringing in ears and shards of beer glass being pulled out of limbs, Beastwars return from a triumphant Melbourne tour to announce a seven-show trek across New Zealand in November 2013.

This, their final NZ tour in support of the hugely successful album Blood Becomes Fire, sees the band play to loyal fans in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland as well as returning to this years Tattoo and Art Festival in New Plymouth and venturing to new frontiers, Masterton and Napier.

Following news that Nick Keller is nominated for "Best Album Art" at the 2013 Vodafone NZ Music awards for Blood Becomes Fire (he also won for Beastwars in 2011) the band are excited to have a set list that includes songs from the new album that have never been played live before and a taste of the new music being readied for future releases.

These will be the last shows for Beastwars in New Zealand for 2013 until they grace Big Day Out and Homegrown attendees with their thunderous presence then focus 2014 on recording a new album and more tours in Australia.

"The level of power projected by Beastwars, here on their debut Australian tour, was unfathomable... something you’d expect from an encore-demanding stadium crowd... I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen a crowd lose their minds in such a manner." - Beat Magazine

Scoop Review Of Books: From Here And There

Being Chinese: A New Zealander’s Story
by Helene Wong.
This is the fascinating story of Helene Wong, born in 1949 in Taihape to Chinese parents: her mother, born soon after her parents migrated here, and her father, born in China but sent to relatives in Taihape at seven to get an education in English. More>>

Game Over: Trans-Tasman Netball League To Discontinue

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
