BoneyMtickets could be yours
‘‘They kept dance floors packed and a generation dancing... one of the greatest disco acts ever.’’
Yes folks you heard right! Disco Legends Boney M are making a welcome return to NZ and indeed to the Tron. Even better news is that we have a double pass up for grabs for you to head along to the show and party the night away.
For the uninitiated Boney M’s remarkable journey began after German record producer Frank Farian recorded the single Baby Do You Wanna Bump? In 1974 he created BoneyMto support the song.
The four original members of the group’s official line-up were Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett from Jamaica, Maizie Williams from Montserrat and Bobby Farrell from Aruba.
Their first appearance in Germany was a performance of the song Daddy Cool in the then important and famous TV-Show Musikladen in 1976.
This led to around 100,000 singles per week flying off shelves and the astounding success of their album Take the Heat Off Me.
With 18 Platinum and 15 Gold LPs and more than 200 Gold and Platinum Singles to their name, the disco legends have sold a mind-blowing 150 million records worldwide.
They continue to perform live, recreating the songs their fans never tire of coming to see them play.
They have stood the test of time and their music remains as relevant on todays musical landscape as it was in their heyday.
Songs such as Sunny, Ma Baker, Still I’m Sad, Belfast, Rivers Of Babylon/Brown Girl In The Ring, Rasputin, Painter Man, Voodoonight, Little Drummer Boy and Hooray! Hooray! It’s A Holiday and to name but a few.
And let’s not forget Mary’s Boy Child/Oh My Lord which was a Christmas chart-topper, becoming the fifth biggest selling single in UK history.
They kept dance floors packed and a generation dancing. Don’t miss your chance to see one of the greatest disco acts ever. Tickets from Ticketek.
