Kiwi legends The Mockers reform their classic line-up for their first New Zealand tour in 30 years, to perform nine shows from January 19-29.
Plus1, The Sound and Phantom Billstickers proudly present The Mockers performing classic hits like Forever Tuesday Morning, Swear It’s True, One Black Friday, My Girl Thinks She’s Cleopatra, Shield Yourself, and many many more.
Joining forces for the Mockers reunion are NZ-based Andrew Fagan (vocals), Brett Adams (guitar), plus Geoff Hayden (bass) - travelling from London, and keyboard maestro - Australian-based Tim Wedde.
Special guests for all North Island shows are Delete Delete – featuring members of stellar* and elemeno p.
The Mockers enjoyed three Top 10 albums and six hit singles, and played to huge crowds across the country throughout the 1980s, riding a wave of New Wave pop success with the likes of the Dance Exponents and DD Smash.
The reunion will also serve as tribute to Mockers drummer and friend Steve Thorpe, who passed away in 1986. Special guest drummer is huge Mockers fan, Chris O’Connor from the Phoenix Foundation.
Says Fagan: “This reunion tour is a great chance for the band to reconnect from all corners of the globe after so long apart, and share the Mockers songs with the very supportive fanbase throughout New Zealand.”
