Boh Runga brings stellar sounds to Auckland Zoo

Award-winning singer-songwriter Boh Runga, with special guest Nathan King, get the Coca-Cola ZooMusic series off to a stellar start on Saturday 21 January.

Nathan King, lead singer of the former smash hit Kiwi band Zed, takes the stage after acoustic brother duo Chris and Graham Sanders, to perform an acoustic set of new songs from his upcoming solo album. King says he’ll also be happy to throw in a few old Zed favourites should he get any requests.
Boh will be joined on stage by stellar* bassist, Kurt Shanks, and Stevie G from Rhombus, on keys. Along with material from her new album, she will also be performing hits from the chart-topping albums, Mix and Magic Line.
Aside from a guest performance at the 2005 Music Awards, this is Boh’s first live gig in a few years, so one she is excited about.

Concert-goers are invited to come early and make a day of it with friends and family at Auckland’s best park. Most of the animals will still be up enjoying the warmth of the summer evenings during the series. Food and refreshments will be available at the licensed Darwin's café, or the bar and BBQs set up near the Band Rotunda. A range of delicious food hampers can also be pre-ordered from Darwin's café (phone 09-360 5261), and Weta Café will be open late.
Coca-Cola ZooMusic tickets can be pre-purchased now at the Zoo (ph 360 3805, www.aucklandzoo.co.nz) or through Ticketek. With limited capacity, and tickets expected to sell fast, we recommend advance booking. Tickets: Adults $20, Children (4+yrs) $10 and $50 for a three-concert multi-ticket or family pass (2 adults, 2 children). Every pre-purchased ticket enters you in the draw to win some fantastic prizes, including a $3000 music package from MusicWorks.
