PRESS RELEASE:

Jaz Coleman

SPOKEN WORD

‘GOING OVER TO THE DARK SIDE’

“A Light hearted look at the state of world affairs by the Dark Lord”

Anyone who knows Jaz Coleman knows he’s never at a loss for words.

The iconic front man for post punk legends Killing Joke has been speaking his mind for over 30 years.

Like the music of Killing Joke, Coleman can be brutal, confrontational and impossible to ignore. But those lucky fans who are able to attend his one-off spoken word performance at Auckland’s Classic Comedy Bar, will find that Jaz is an intelligent, insightful, and yes, humorous commentator on the state of world affairs.

Coleman’s “Going Over To The Dark Side” show will touch on issues and topics important to all New Zealanders including Globalization, Climate Change, American Politics and the controversial TPPA.

Jaz has been busy this past year. Killing Joke’s latest album, Pylon, debuted at number one on the UK rock chart, while his book, Letters From Cythera is headed for a second printing. There are also rumours of an orchestrated Killing Joke album to be released soon...

But New Zealand has always been close to Coleman’s heart…the British-born artist is a NZ citizen and resident. Now he offers a chance for fans to interact with him in an intimate venue, with a spoken-word performance created specifically for New Zealanders.

Tickets are on sale now for this one-off event as the Killing Joke’s Jaz Coleman shares his personal philosophy, ideas and opinions with his New Zealand fans.

The Classic, 321 Queen Street, Auckland
Sunday 28th February
Doors 7pm – Show starts 7:30pm Sharp
Tickets available now at Eventfinda and The Classic

16th and end of world cataclysm since 1982 has yet to happen, on his birthday.. If it does better to plan a walk up rather than buy advance tickets. It's a fine line but don't snort.
