Two Music Legends Coming to TSB Bowl of Brooklands

Two Music Legends Coming to TSB Bowl of Brooklands


Two of the biggest names in music will be performing at the TSB Bowl of Brooklands this summer.

Paul Simon and Sting will be bringing their On Stage Together tour to the Bowl on 31 January 2015 as part of a world tour.

Says Mayor Andrew Judd: “We are thrilled to play host to these world-renowned artists at our wonderful TSB Bowl of Brooklands. I’m sure this is a concert our community will be excited to support.”

Manager Venues Nelita Byrne says the show has generated hugely positive reviews in the United States.

“Sting and Paul Simon are music icons in their own right but together they will be sensational – especially so at the outdoor amphitheatre of the TSB Bowl of Brooklands,” she says.

“The Bowl has had iconic acts give truly memorable performances over the decades and this show will surely rank high among them.”

Sting’s string of hits includes Roxanne, Fields of Gold, Every Little Thing She Does is Magic and Englishman In New York, while Paul Simon’s song catalogue features 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard and You Can Call Me Al.

Tickets are on sale to the general public from noon on Wednesday 3 September at ticketmaster.co.nz, phone 0800 11 999 or at TSB Showplace Box Office.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
