featuring THE ANGELS - DRAGON - MI-SEX
Take a deep breath NZ…
February 2016, three of the biggest bands in Australasian rock & roll history will join forces in a Clash of the Titans for a seven date hit & run tour from Auckland to Invercargill.
Each band in their own right are multi-platinum recording artists with connections to New Zealand that go way back, with many songs etched in our memory.
Who could forget 'Computer Games', 'April Sun in Cuba' or 'No Secrets', and that’s just the tip of this procession of big tunes played hard & strong!
To make things even more interesting, the playing order is decided by a toss of the coin on the night and the sets are kept to the most essential, meaning the punters will know every song that’s belted out from the stage.
The Clash of the Titans - The Angels, Dragon & Mi-Sex is unique to New Zealand and will never be repeated.
The Angels, who were regular visitors up until the late 90s, toured NZ this year with Billy Idol, Dragon tore up stages around NZ in last year’s inaugural Clash of the Titans, and Mi-Sex have only touched down at home briefly.
So, the stage is set - drag out your vinyl, rewind your cassettes and turn up your CDs 'til your neighbours start to worry, cause the boys are coming back to town and the houses are going to ROCK.
Not a lot more to say…except you had best plan to buy your tickets fast!
The Angels became stars in New Zealand off the back of their 1980 album Dark Room, and in 1981 Citizen Band drummer Brent Eccles joined the band for a 20 year tenure that included the albums Night Attack, Howling, Liveline & Beyond Salvation. That was then and this is now. Hear The Angels play beloved hits like 'No Secrets', 'We Gotta Get Out Of This Place', 'Let The Night Roll On', 'Dogs Are Talking' and more.

Dragon were inducted to the NZ Hall of Fame in 2011 and played their 40th anniversary tour across New Zealand in 2012 playing theatres and concert halls up and down the country. They've played some memorable Summer Tours including last year's Clash Of The Titans which also featured The Exponents & The Feelers. That tour was a sellout!
Dragon are a tight unit of four talented musicians, led by Todd Hunter with a catalogue of songs that would be the envy of any band: 'April Sun in Cuba', 'Rain', 'Are You Old Enough', 'Still In Love With You' and more.
• Todd Hunter - bass guitar, vocals
• Mark Williams - vocals, guitar
• Bruce Reid - guitar
• Pete Drummond - drums, vocals, keyboards
Mi-Sex were born out the NZ pub circuit of the late 70’s but made their mark and broke as a band in Australia with their renowned breakthrough album Graffiti Crimes. They exploded as a band both in style and delivery, and their single 'Computer Games' was a Top 5 hit in New Zealand. After a very long break they reunited and get to show us what they are made of on Clash Of The Titans!
