Andrew Fagan & The People have lined up three South Island shows for later this month. The performances will see fans treated to tunes from across the singer-songwriters back catalogue, including Mockers and Fagan's solo material as well as songs from the band's Ancestor EP that was released last December. The group, which brings Fagan together with Darryn Harkness, Ronny Haynes, Kurt Shanks and Josh Rockfield, will be supported for all three shows by Auckland act Loud Ghost, who recently released their debut album. Here are the details...

PRESS RELEASE:

Andrew Fagan & The People hit the South Island from 19 to 21 November for three concerts, featuring songs from the Mockers, solo and beyond.

Special guests for these Christchurch, Timaru and Dunedin dates are Auckland three-piece Loud Ghost, hots on the heals of their debut album release.

Fagan's renaissance continues, with recent critically acclaimed EP 'Ancestor' and the imminent release of a live LP. Fagan and band (Darryn Harkness, Ronny Haynes, Kurt Shanks and Josh Rockfield) present 30 years of great tunes - from early hits like Swear It's True, Alvison Park and Forever Tuesday Morning, to solo gems like Jerusalem, Exciting and 2015 favourites Ancestor and Stalling.

Reviews this year include:

Trevor Reekie, Radio NZ: “Fagan & The People are totally fearless, loud, psychedelic and very funny. Fagan himself is a righteous raconteur"

Simon Sweetman, Blog On The Tracks: "The title song is majestic. It feels like one of the very best songs Fagan has ever offered. Stalling and Davilon manage to say more in their short running time than many other songs manage.”

In the early 1980s Fagan took the The Mockers from Wellington to Auckland, landing chart success with a series of hits, and collected the RIANZ award for Top Male Vocalist, before an extended stint with the band in the UK. His return to New Zealand saw the release of solo album Blisters in 1994. Fagan & The People’s debut album was Admiral of the Narrow Seas, followed by last year’s Ancestor EP.

Fagan’s other driving passion is sailing. He is currently in the middle of a five-week adventure to the Kermadec Islands. Fagan has authored two sailing autobiographies, Swirly World: The Solo Voyages (which captured his epic solo journey across the Tasman) and Swirly Word Sails South about his voyage to the sub-Antarctic Auckland Islands in the notorious Southern Ocean, setting a world record in the process.

Tickets for all three shows are available now from Eventfinda.co.nz
