The Mutton Birds Summer Headline Shows Announced

The Mutton Birds Summer Headline Shows Announced

C.C. / Thursday 7th November, 2019 10:00AM

Don McGlashan and The Mutton Birds have revealed they'll be reuniting to treat fans to an extensive tour of Aotearoa in early 2020, expanding upon previously announced summer appearances with three headline shows in Dunedin, Wellington and Napier. Formed in Auckland in 1991 by McGlashan, Ross Burge, David Long and soon after joined by bassist Alan Gregg, The Mutton Birds have truly left their mark on New Zealand's musical culture, penning such evocative classics as 'Dominion Road', 'Anchor Me' and 'The Heater' along with their chart-topping reimagining of The Fourmyula's 'Nature'. The full original lineup will be performing across the nation this summer, hot on the heels of McGlashan's stellar recent run of Blam Blam Blam reunion shows.

Don McGlashan shared his enthusiasm for the tour: "The impossible happens when the Mutton Birds play. How such flawless music could come from four so deeply flawed individuals has been the subject of heated debate for years now. Best just come along and see for yourself.”

UPDATE 19/11/19: a second Wellington headline event has been announced, as the previously announced show has now sold out...

Press release:

Due to popular demand and to scratch the itch to play more shows, Aotearoa’s beloved storytellers, The Mutton Birds, announce three headline shows in Dunedin, Wellington and Napier to add to this summer’s already announced appearances.

Original guitarist David Long is looking forward to the summer shows as he quipped, "I’m rapt to be touring with the band again. Last time we played together it felt like we were getting better with a little age…They can be a pack of bastards but the songs are great!’.

The full original lineup will be on the road this summer including the founder, singer and songwriter Don McGlashan. When the band formed in 1991 McGlashan was already a highly regarded figure for his work in the legendary post-punk-era group Blam Blam Blam. With ex-Six Volts guitarist David Long and drummer Ross Burge, the group began recording their debut album in late 1991. Following its completion, former Dribbling Darts bassist Alan Gregg was recruited to fill out the line-up.
