NZ All-Stars Add More Stars!

The biggest super-group of NZ musicians to ever hit the stage will be playing at THE TRUSTS ARENA in Auckland this November. The show, MARLEY: CELEBRATE THE LEGEND, is endorsed directly by the Marley family and now features 21 of your favourite kiwi stars playing the hits of Bob Marley. It will be staged for one night only in Auckland on Thursday 30 November.

Support at all shows will be from powerhouse NZ band, L.A.B. The Bay of Plenty four-piece, which includes past members of Kora and Katchafire, have been taking the NZ music scene by storm with their infectious funk reggae vibe and gaining legions of fans at festivals nationwide. This band are incredible live, and their new album is set for release on 24 November with the first single Jimmy Boy out now.

If anyone could bring the KORA brothers together again on stage, it had to be Bob Marley. We are stoked to have all 4 brothers, Laughton, Fran, Brad and Stu Kora reunite for the coming shows in Auckland and Australia. This is the first time the brothers have performed together in over 5 years and will make for a memorable night.

Earlybird tickets for the Auckland show have sold out, General Admission are on sale now for $65+BF and VIP / Christmas Packages, including a meet and greet, dinner, drinks and merchandise, are available for $189pp. Book at Ticketek.
