The Doobie Brothers Auckland Show

The Doobie Brothers return to New Zealand.

A touch of blues, plus a lot of soul and rock and roll equal the nostalgic sound of California rock band The Doobie Brothers, who’ll be takin’ it to the streets in Auckland this coming Easter. 

One of the enduring worldwide favourites of the 1970s, The Doobie Brothers, will bring their celebrated catalogue of rock music back to our shores this Easter for one Auckland show at The Civic on Friday 25th April, after visiting Australia for a run of headline shows and festival appearances. 

As one of the most popular California pop/rock bands of the '70's, The Doobie Brothers evolved from a mellow, post-hippie boogie band to a slick, soul-inflicted pop outfit by the end of the decade. Extolling smart pop hooks and warm, soulful vocals, along the way the group racked up a string of gold and platinum albums, along with a number of radio hits like Listen To The Music, Black Water, What A Fool Believes, Takin' It To The Streets and China Grove, lacing their country-rock stylings with an enjoyable dash of funk. 

With founding members Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons and 30 year-plus veteran John McFee, the Doobies will be performing with a bunch of esteemed musicians as an eight-piece band. There's no disputing the unparalleled legacy of The Doobie Brothers. This show is not to be missed. 

Tickets for all shows go on sale Thursday 28th November, 9am.
