  • Auckland Exclusive

Dames Jools and Lynda Topp are undisputed national treasures, with an enduring legacy of song, comedy, and politics across stage, film, and television.

To celebrate 40 years as performers, the Dames will share the stories behind some of their iconic songs that became the soundtrack to New Zealand’s protest movement of the 1980s, from the Springbok tour to Māori land rights, Nuclear-Free New Zealand, and Homosexual law reform.

Together with curated archival material and comedy, this special concert will pay homage to the art of protest and the role of music in building a movement. Although the Dames are better known for their comedy, they are also exceptional singer-songwriters who have created a diverse musical legacy.

In 2010 the Topp Twins were inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame and in 2018 were appointed Dame Companions of the New Zealand Order of Merit.

Early Bird tickets are available until 11:59pm 6 January 2022, or until allocation is exhausted.
