X-fac­tor stars live

Kapi-Mana News - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

R&B and soul fans are in for a treat this week with pop­u­lar per­form­ers Four­tu­nate and Adeaze play­ing in Porirua.

With over a mil­lion views on Youtube, Four­tu­nate, from Australia, have three dates in New Zealand, play­ing Porirua, Feild­ing and Wainuiomata. Their rise to fame came via their ap­pear­ance on Fac­tor Australia last year, with so­cial me­dia play­ing a large part in their pop­u­lar­ity.

They are joined by Kiwi group Adeaze, made up of broth­ers Fea­gaigafou (Nainz) and Lo­govi’i (Viiz) Tu­pai. Ac­tive since 2003, they at­tribute their mu­si­cal suc­cess to mum Salepa, who taught them Sun­day school and Samoan songs with her ‘ con­duc­tor’s stick’ from a young age.

Show di­rec­tor Aaron Davey says Adeaze’s strong vo­cals and gui­tar skills will com­ple­ment Four­tu­nate’s smooth R&B singing tal­ents.

‘‘I thought the two acts would fuse right, com­ple­ment each other and tie into the theme of the shows. We’ve got New Zealand’s num­ber one R&B/ soul duo and Australia’s un­de­ni­able ris­ing in­ter­na­tional act to­gether.’’

The show in Porirua is R18 and be­gins at 9pm, at The Ledge bar. Tick­ets can be pur­chased on­line at eventfinder.co.nz for $25 or on the door for $35.
