Our coffee table book LIVE: Gigs that rocked New Zealand has been a big hit with music fans but it’s also becoming a collector’s item for rock bands.
Members of the band Cheap Tricks – whose 1979 New Zealand concert features in the book – returned Down Under for an Australian tour in late 2018.
Guitarist Rick Nielsen was presented with a copy of LIVE by the US Ambassador to New Zealand, Scott Brown, who is also a fan of the collection of images and stories recalling half a century of concerts.
Wellington architect and musician Bruce Sedcole loves the book and has bought many copies to give to friends, including ambassador Brown. He’s now sending copies to Nielsen’s Cheap Tricks bandmates, all of whom have enjoyed reading it.
