Cherie Currie – Live 2016 NZ Tour

Cherie Currie – Live 2016 NZ Tour

In her own words, this gig was forty years coming, and with it came thundering power chords and the raw back beat of seasoned rockers.

Words by Mitch Treleaven

Cherie Currie overcame her jet lag in spectacular fashion, and conducted herself in a kind of professional colloquialism that sat well with us in our books.

Her band was unapologetically flashy, owning the space in a set that went from Bowie to Kiss, and finishing with the hit song “Cherry Bomb”, still reminiscent of rebellious teen angst, and all dedicated to us just for turning up.
Strong support from the local talent tonight as well, Blue Ruin and Cheshire Grimm both vouching for Auckland’s punk scene being very much alive and well. Prepare yourselves, Wellington!
Check out Brad Holland’s wicked photos from Auckland’s Kings Arms gig below. Stay tuned for more
