Dimmer Live at Old St Paul's
Following 2022's sold out 'I Believe You Are A Star' tour, Dimmer returns for a series of nationwide performances, including two nights at Old St Paul's.
Band leader Shayne Carter put together a six piece band for the tour last year marking the 20th anniversary of Dimmer’s most celebrated record, and the event proved such a musical success that he has decided to continue with a line up of core members Carter, James Duncan (bass/guitar, Gary Sullivan (drums), Louisa Nicklin (guitar/vocals), Durham Fenwick (keys/vocals) and Neive Strang (vocals/percussion).
“The music sounded too good and the band played it too well to just pack this thing away,” Carter said of the 2022 shows. “I truly believe that this line up was the fullest realisation of the musical vision I always had for Dimmer. The number of people on stage and the skills and sensibilities they brought to the band meant we could do justice to a lot of material we maybe hadn’t been able to do full justice to, or even play, in the past. It was a new band with a fresh set in a lot of ways. I also found this group inspiring with future material in mind.”
The tour will also be in celebration of a live double album drawn from last year’s shows at the The Hollywood Avondale, recorded by RNZ’s Andre Upston. Dimmer 'Live At The Hollywood' features cherry-picked versions from the entire Dimmer repertoire, recorded over a sold-out three night stand in Tāmaki Makaurau.
