Living Colour are bringing their 30th Anniversary Tour to New Zealand!
Led by the mighty guitar-slinging virtuoso Vernon Reid, Living Colour set the musical world on fire in the 1980s with their incendiary brand of funk-rock fusion.
Championed by Mick Jagger and credited with opening the musical landscape of the late 1980s with hits like the Grammy-winning Cult Of Personality and the Top 40 smash Glamour Boys, Living Colour broke through musical and racial barriers, opening for Guns n’ Roses and The Rolling Stones along the way.
These days Living Colour is a self-contained supergroup with vocalist Cory Glover, aka Rev Daddy Love, drummer Will Calhoun, an accomplished photographer who has played with B.B. King, Public Enemy and Wayne Shorter and acclaimed bass player Doug Wimbish, veteran session man who was a member of the original Sugarhill house band and part of Adrian Sherwood’s On-U Sound.
Vernon Reid has a special connection to New Zealand, having assembled a one-off solo band in 2008 to appear at the G-TARanaki Guitar Fest jamming with GnR guitarist Gilby Clarke.
With a new album due in 2017, Living Colour are still a musical force to be reckoned with. Don’t miss them!
