This spectacular book proved to be a real rock down memory lane for me. I found six concerts I had attended, mainly back in the 70's and including the terrific Neil Diamond concert at Western Springs in 1976.

In the 50 years since we first danced in the aisles to Gene Vincent, hundreds of music's biggest names have come to New Zealand and this big handsome and entertaining book is the story of those shows. Bloody brilliant, loved it!
