WELLINGTON, Thursday 23rd October 2008 – MySpace and Visa Entertainment are pleased to announce that Fur Patrol will be playing a MySpace Secret Show on the 4th November in Christchurch, the first Secret Show for MySpace in the South Island.

The band have just released their third album Local Kid, and are about to embark on a nationwide mini tour including the Southern Amp festival. The MySpace Secret Show will allow Christchurch fans to see them in a small and intimate setting for FREE. Joining the band on the night will be local Christchurch band Tiny Paper Daggers, who Fur Patrol found on MySpace and asked to support them. Fans will be able to hear first-hand the songs from Fur Patrol’s new album Local Kid and receive exclusive screen printed posters to commemorate the event at the show.

Fur Patrol’s 12 year career has seen the band release three albums, three EP’s, a number one hit single with the song ‘Lydia’ and a Tui at the 2001 New Zealand Music Award for ‘Best Female Vocalist’.

MySpace Secret Shows, presented by Visa Entertainment, are exclusive, FREE concerts held throughout New Zealand featuring some of the biggest Kiwi artists.
