Free Jor­dan Luck gig in central city

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - HUGH COLLINS

Kiwi mu­sic phe­nom­e­non Jor­dan Luck is set to belt his hits for free at the Aotea Square this week­end. The singer of The Ex­po­nents is the voice behind a range of Kiwi an­thems in­clud­ing and will play them as the Jor­dan Luck Band in central Auck­land on Satur­day night. Luck said af­ter a ca­reer span­ning sev­eral decades, it’s the live per­for­mance el­e­ment that still keeps him buzzing. ‘‘Play­ing live, that’s what re­ally got me into be­ing in a band on re­flec­tion and that hasn’t changed at all,’’ Luck said. The Jor­dan Luck band will per­form the free Aotea Square gig to mark the be­gin­ning of the Civic Do This To Me Why Does Love Quar­ter, an in­ner-city de­vel­op­ment set to be­come an im­por­tant hos­pi­tal­ity cen­tre. It is part of a wider de­vel­op­ment which will trans­form the 18-storey former Auck­land Coun­cil tower known as the Civic Ad­min­is­tra­tion Build­ing into apart­ments. Prop­erty de­vel­op­ers Josephine and John Love of Love & Co are behind the project, set to be fin­ished in 2020. Josephine Love said hav­ing luck play would cre­ate hype for the Civic Quar­ter. ‘‘We want this to be this cul­tural cen­tre but we can’t fin­ish this in four years time and ex­pect peo­ple just to show up.’’ The Jor­dan Luck Band will per­form with Ricky Ball from Hello Sailor from 5pm.
