Summer tour celebrating 30 years of the Mockers / the People / solo - plus new EP Ancestor!
Andrew Fagan & The People will perform up and down the country this summer in celebration of something old and something new.
The nine-date tour covers Auckland, Northland, Napier, Masterton, Wellington, Christchurch, Timaru, Lake Hawea and Dunedin.
The tour celebrates the release of new EP Ancestor, as well as 30 years to the month since The Mockers reached No 2 in the NZ charts with Forever Tuesday Morning; the same year (1984) their debut album Swear It's True went Top 5 and sparked a wave of Mockermania!
But ever-intrepid Andrew Fagan has never been one to dwell on the past, and while his tour shows will embrace some of those Mockers favourites, Andrew and the band are equally excited to perform new material and coincide the tour with the release of new EP.
From Friday December 5, the Ancestor EP will be available from AndrewFagan.co.nz with the title track as a free download.
Fans of The Mockers can look forward to hearing live the likes of Swear It's True, One Black Friday, Alvison Park, Seven Years Not Wasted and Forever Tuesday Morning, while others familiar with his later work will enjoy Jerusalem, Now You Know, Exciting and more recent gems like Get Light, Religion, Messiah, and new songs like Ancestor and Stalling.
And being Andrew Fagan, expect a few surprises.
Music bible Stranded In Paradise labeled Andrew Fagan - "Kiwi Rock's most flamboyant frontman" - and for those who have seen his live shows with Andrew Fagan & The People - it's a label that is still relevant. These days you can add RadioLive broadcaster, writer, and long-distance solo sailor to the mix, but this tour is all about the music.
The new Ancestor EP is a follow-up to the Fagan & The People album 'Admiral of the Narrow Seas', and builds on the energy and chemistry of the new band, featuring Darryn Harkness (Loud Ghost), Kurt Shanks (Delete Delete), Ronny Growler (Show Me Where It Hurts) and guitarist Josh Rockfield.
