DRAGON 40th ANNIVERSARY AUSTRALIAN CONCERT SERIES

| 12 December 2012 | Reply

Dragon 40th anniversary concert series

Dragon were rock n roll warriors of the late 70’s/early 80’s touring scene and emperors of excess. Their live shows were unsurpassed and their notorious rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle well documented.   Ever since ‘This Time’, Dragon have infused the hearts and consciousness of generations of New Zealanders and Australian’s with their raft of infectious hit songs such as ‘April Sun in Cuba’; ‘Are You Old Enough?’, ‘Still in Love With You’, ‘Rain’, ‘Young Years’ ‘Cry’ and ‘Dreams of Ordinary Men’.

In 1977 they won ‘Best New Group’ and in 1978 won the Outstanding Local Achievement awards for the then Australian music awards ‘TV Week King Of Pop Awards’.  In July 2008 Dragon were again recognised by their adoptive country and were inducted into the Australian ARIA Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.

In October 2012, Dragon released ‘The Dragon Years – 40th Anniversary Collection’ .  The album features a 40 track full career retrospective. Disc 1 features all the original hits with legendary Kiwi front man Marc Hunter on vocals. Disc 2 features new material recorded since Dragon’s reformation in 2006 with the current line-up of founding member Todd Hunter on bass, fellow Kiwi  Mark Williams on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, Bruce Reid on electric guitar and Pete Drummond on drums .

Dragon will join forces with Jimmy Barnes, Baby Animals (select dates), Ian Moss and Chocolate Starfish and hit the road for the 2013 Red Hot Summer Tour.  For the confirmed line up coming to your town and playing times, please visit the www.redhotsummertour.com.au website.

Dragon will then continue their 40th anniversary celebrations by headlining their own national 40TH ANNIVERSARY AUSTRALIAN CONCERT SERIES from April 2013.  Tickets for these shows will go on sale Wednesday November 21st, 2012.
