WHEN THE CAT'S AWAY with Special Taonga HERBS

Following the massive success of last year’s concert by New Zealand’s most cherished supergroup When The Cat’s Away, with mega hits including Melting Pot and Asian Paradise, the four original members of this Hall of Fame group Debbie Harwood, Annie Crummer, Dianne Swann, and Kim Willoughby are excited to announce they will perform in Auckland at The Powerstation on 18 May by popular demand.

The concert will see them reunited with their old friends Herbs whose hits like French Letter and Nuclear Waste provided the soundtrack to the anti-nuclear movement in the 80s expressed through the joy and unifying medium of beautiful music.  Annie Crummer’s hit See What Love Can Do Featured Herbs on vocals and permanently linked the bands who had become champions of the people in the eighties.  

Fast-forward almost 40 years and these two bands maintain legions of fans and are classed as national treasures.
