The Sound of Falling Stars

No longer available

Concert Chamber, Auckland Town Hall


The hits and heartaches of music’s lost heroes. 

Revel in their songs and marvel at the drama of their dark stories, as Cameron Goodall (The Lion King, Sydney Theatre Company) inhabits the souls of great stars who gave us so much, and died so young.

From Hank Williams, through Elvis Presley, Sam Cooke, and Bobby Darin to Tim and Jeff Buckley, Nick Drake, Bon Scott, Kurt Cobain and more, this is a night of musical joy and monumental loss.  

An unmissable New Zealand premiere, co-commissioned by Auckland Live and Adelaide Cabaret Festival.
