Event description
Live tribute to R.E.M. from local musicians, in support of the Taranaki Retreat. With support from Bob Dylan tribute, Jersey Bob.

About this Event

Almost 15 years have passed since legendary American rock band R.E.M. played the only Taranaki concert of their illustrious career.

It’s been a long time between drinks – but now the magic of that 2005 summer’s night is to be recreated by local tribute band ‘Everybody Hurts’, featuring some of New Plymouth’s best-known musicians.

Even better – every cent from every ticket sold for this one-off gig will be donated to the Taranaki Retreat, a special place that helps so many local people in so many ways.

The band – Dave Ritchie-Smith (guitar and bass), Andy Bassett (bass and mandolin), Marc Gernhoefer (drums), Adam Sedgwick (guitar) and Nick Maybury (vocals) – will trawl the R.E.M. catalogue, playing some classic ‘oldies’ as well as a flood of favourites like Losing My Religion, Shiny Happy People, Man On The Moon and, of course, Everybody Hurts.

This will be an evening to remember, so grab your tickets now.

Every cent from every ticket sold will be donated to the Taranaki Retreat.
