Prepare Your Appetite for Adler


Prepare Your Appetite for Adler

Former Guns N’ Roses drummer and co-writer Steven Adler is igniting his Adler’s Appetite band and has today announced an Australasian tour, with a very special one-of-a-kind ‘one night only’ show at the Powerstation in Auckland on Thursday, May 24.

Presented by Storm The Gates and The Rock, the show will be divided into two parts - an up-close-and-personal Q&A with Adler and his mother Deanna Adler, hosted by Bryce Casey from The Rock.

This will be followed by a kick-ass 60 minutes of pure rock ‘n’ roll in which Adler’s band will play Guns ‘N Roses’ debut record, the iconic APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION, in its entirety.

Deanna Adler is the author of ‘Sweet Child Of Mine: How I Lost My Son to Guns ‘N Roses’. Over the last 25 years, she kept her diaries, journals, and personal letters, as well as a dozen scrapbooks and hundreds of photographs, putting them aside for safekeeping. This is your opportunity to experience the rare personal and emotive journey about raising her son, and the efforts of keeping him alive and herself sane.

The second part of the show sees Adler and his esteemed guests celebrating the 30th anniversary of 1987’s APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION, which is often described by critics and fans alike, as one of the greatest albums of all time. It contained back-to-back hits, including ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’, ‘Paradise City’ and ‘Welcome To The Jungle’.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
