Andrew Fagan & The People is the dynamic five-piece rock ’n roll vehicle for 30 years of Fagan-penned classics. The Auckland-based band includes plenty of Mockers hits plus more recent songs from Fagan & The People’s acclaimed album and two EPs.
Fans of the Mockers can look forward to hits like Swear It's True, One Black Friday, Alvison Park, Seven Years Not Wasted and Forever Tuesday Morning. Live favourites from his solo records include Jerusalem, Now You Know, Exciting and more recent gems like Get Light, Messiah, and Ancestor.
‘The People’ perform an eclectic set befitting Fagan’s pedigree as captivating frontman. As a young Wellingtonian still at High School, he first performed in punk band Ambitious Vegetables from 1978, and then took a turn towards pop with the Mockers, which found chart success in the 1980s with hook-laden songs. Solo album Blisters and subsequent releases with Fagan & The People showed different sides to Fagan’s intriguing persona.
Music bible ‘Stranded In Paradise’ labeled Andrew Fagan - "Kiwi Rock's most flamboyant frontman" - and for those who have seen his recent live shows - it's a label that is still very much relevant. These days you can add broadcaster, writer, and long-distance solo sailor to the mix. But this show is all about the music, and being Andrew Fagan, expect a few surprises.
