Bic Runga, Tim Finn and The Topp Twins will perform a 2-hour variety concert, together with the Hātea Kapa Haka group. Expected to be a stand-out entertainment event, the Kiwi Concert Party brings together a who’s who of musical and comedic talent at Auckland’s exceptional outdoor venue Villa Maria.
On board since the conception of this wonderful show, Tim Finn is looking forward to hitting the stage:
"I thought after everything we'd been through together in 2020, a mix of music and comedy would be a great tonic. A modern take on the old "Variety" show. Then I flashed on those famous images of Bob Hope and Marilyn Monroe scurrying under the still whirring blades of a helicopter towards a makeshift stage. And I remembered Dad telling me about the troops being entertained in WW2. The idea for a Kiwi Concert Party starring Bic Runga, the Topp Twins and myself felt both classic and timely. Add into that mixture the Hātea Kapa Haka group with their amazing vocal harmonies, a musical director of the calibre of Karl Stevens, acclaimed songwriter Reb Fountain and iconic DJ Manuel Bundy and you have a unique and celebratory event. We will share the stage and shift the mood, reminding everybody what a special place NZ is. Have a sing, have a laugh, have a dance and a drop of the doings. See you there!"
