Since their beginnings in Sydney in 1981, Hoodoo Gurus have had a bunch of multi-platinum albums, nine ARIA Top 20 albums, and nine ARIA Top 40 singles. Their debut album, Stoneage Romeos held the number one spot on the US alternative/college albums chart for four consecutive weeks.
Hoodoo Gurus frontman Dave Faulkner expressed the band’s excitement to be back across the ditch: “We’re thrilled to be coming back to New Zealand. Finally! We were starting to think it was never gonna happen – but we’re off and running now, with a spring in our step and a fire in our bellies. We’re coming to shake it down at Hutt Sounds, on The Shaky Isles!”
Kiwi electronic rockers Mi-Sex will also be among the line-up, performing their new-wave post-punk hits.
Lead by vocalist Boh Runga 80s chart-toppers Stellar* will be bringing their mix of rock and electronica to the stage, and fresh from a stint in California Greg Johnson will being performing songs from his 30 year musical career.
