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.
