NEWS: Dragon Announce 40th Anniversary National TourThursday , 16 Aug 2012
Brent Eccles Entertainment, The Sound and Juice TV are thrilled to announce the return of iconic Australasian rock band Dragon on their 14 date, 40th Anniversary National tour of New Zealand this October and November.
Since their formation in the early ‘70’s Dragon have infused the hearts and consciousness of generations of New Zealanders and Australian’s with their raft of infectious hit songs such as ‘April Sun in Cuba’; ‘Are You Old Enough?’, ‘Still in Love With You’, ‘Rain’, ‘Young Years’ ‘Cry’ and ‘Dreams of Ordinary Men’.
Dragon were the kings of the late 70’s/early 80’s touring scene and emperors of excess, the band’s live show was unsurpassed and their rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle will go down in music industry history folklore for generations to come. Selling over one million records in the mid-70’s before disbanding for the first time in 1979, they then reformed in 1982 selling a further million records worldwide before breaking up for the second time in 1997.
To coincide with the 40th Anniversary Tour founding member Todd Hunter and Liberation Music have put together a very special limited 2CD release celebrating this landmark occasion. The Dragon Years - 40th Anniversary Collection 2CD will be released in September and features a 40 track full career retrospective covering all the original hits with legendary kiwi frontman Marc Hunter on disc one and collective works since reforming in 2006 with the current lineup featuring kiwi vocalist Mark Williams on the second disc.
Joining Dragon on their 40th Anniversary jaunt are Kiwi mainstay rockers Hello Sailor and legendary blues singer/guitarist Hammond Gamble.
This October and November revel, reconnect and rejoice with Dragon on their 40th Anniversary tour of New Zealand.
