THE CHARLATANS (UK)
One of the most widely-loved British bands, the Charlatans finally return for the first time since 2008 for an Exclusive NZ Show at Powerstation
‘still put on a cracking show… tight, spirited and, most importantly, having fun’ (NZ Herald)
The group found success with their 1990 debut 'Some Friendly' which featured the indie anthem ‘The Only One I Know’ as well as ‘Then’ and fan favourite ‘Sproston Green’
Since then they have released a bolstering twelve albums, most recently ‘Different Days’ which fans call “a new classic” and the Guardian called their “finest effort since 1996’s Telling Stories”. Along the way they have built up an impressive catalogue of most excellent songs - ‘One to Another’, ‘Northern Country Boy’, ‘Just When You’re Thinkin Things Over’, ‘ Weirdo’, ‘Blackened Blue Eyes’ and loads more.
The Charlatans have seen off Madchester and Britpop, and made music that’s stood the test of time. That, along with their live shows that “never disappoint” have garnered them a passionate following that has given them lasting success… ‘simply a quality band with great back catalogue, great current stuff and phenomenal live musicians’
“The Charlatans sound like home. They're like your big brothers, always reliable. And always your best mate!”
