70's Rock Legends To play The Viaduct Harbour

70's Rock Legends To play The Viaduct Harbour


American rock group, The Doobie Brothers, are coming to Aquatica - Auckland's Harbour Festival in January next year.

Best known for singles such as Listen to the Music, Black Water, China Grove, and What a Fool Believe, The Doobie Brothers are playing their one-off concert at Auckland's Viaduct Harbour on 27 January, and will be supported by top acts such as Hello Sailor.

The band's involvement will literally ensure that Aquatica goes off with a bang. When The Doobie Brothers put down their guitars, the whole of Auckland will be treated to possibly the biggest firework display the city has ever seen.

Aquatica event organiser Dave Stewart says it is a scoop for Auckland that The Doobie Brothers have agreed to perform at Aquatica.

"The Doobie Brothers are legends in the music industry having sold more than 42 million albums over the years, and they play the kind of music that everyone can enjoy."

"Having The Doobie Brothers playing against the backdrop of the Auckland Harbour Bridge, which will be lit by an incredible fireworks display, will certainly ensure the party atmosphere that will be Aquatica," says Dave.

Aquatica - Auckland's Harbour Festival is returning to the City of Sails over Auckland Anniversary Weekend, 25 - 28 January 2008.

At the 2006 event, 223,000 Aucklanders were treated to fireworks displays, tall ships, street theatre, fly-pasts and concerts. This year promises to be even bigger and better with plenty of activities for all the family both on and off the water, and in the sky.

Tickets for The Doobie Brothers' concert will be available from ticketmaster - www.ticketmaster.co.nz - from December 8.
