Steve Earle & The Dukes

Steve Earle & The Dukes

with special guest The Mastersons Live in New Zealand April 2014

Sat 26 April – The Powerstation, Auckland
Sun 27 April – St James Theatre, Wellington

It’s a long way from Copperhead Road to The Low Highway, and for Steve Earle the journey has been filled with satisfying highs (3 Grammys and marriage to Allison Moorer).

Now, at age 58, Steve Earle is firing on all cylinders. His latest album, The Low Highway has garnered rave reviews, he’s just published his first novel, I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive, and he has acted on some of the best television shows of the past decade including The Wire and Treme.

But Steve Earle’s main focus is his music…especially performing live.

Over the years, New Zealand audiences have been treated to some of Steve Earle’s most stunning shows, both as a solo artist and with his band. Last time he was here he jammed with Lucinda Williams. And with 15 studio albums under his belt, there’s never any danger of hearing the same set twice.

“I tried not to repeat myself,” Earle has said. “I can’t think of anything less interesting than making the same album twice.”

Now Steve Earle and The Dukes return to New Zealand for two shows, featuring long-time drummer Will Rigby along with Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore of The Mastersons, who will also serve as the opening act. In addition to backing Steve Earle on The Low Highway, The Mastersons have entranced audiences with songs from their own album, Birds Fly South. Earle has described this version of the band as “the best I’ve ever stood in front of”.

From all reports, Steve Earle and The Dukes are on fire…performing razor-sharp versions of songs that span his entire career.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
