In tour news, The Boss - aka Bruce Springsteen - announced a second Auckland show after selling out his first Mount Smart Stadium show in minutes (!!), Rhythm and Vines revealed the second lot of acts playing this years festival, UK punk/new wave band The Members were announced to tour nationwide in November with Rat Scabies from The Damned on drums and eighties hitmaker Nik Kershaw announced an accustic tour of New Zealand in October.

Caught live this week, we have another video from Twin Shadow who is eerily in tune with the international acts heading our way having covered 10cc hit 'I'm Not In Love' last month and has now offered up his take on Bruce Springsteen's 'I'm On Fire'...
