The Breeze presents When the Cat's Away Nationwide Tour!

New Zealand’s most cherished supergroup are excited to announce a four-venue tour this April and May!
19 February 2024

When the Cat's Away are back and this time, they're taking the show on tour!

The four original members of this Hall of Fame group Debbie Harwood, Annie Crummer, Dianne Swann and Kim Willoughby will perform their mega hits including Melting Pot and Asian Paradise, in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland.

The concerts will see them reunited with their old friends Herbs whose hits like French Letter and Nuclear Waste provided the soundtrack to the anti-nuclear movement in the 80s expressed through the joy and unifying medium of beautiful music. Annie Crummer’s hit See What Love Can Do featured Herbs on vocals and permanently linked the bands who had become champions of the people in the eighties.

Fast-forward to almost 40 years, these two bands maintain legions of fans and are classed as national treasures. The event will also feature original members of the When the Cat’s Away's backing band, Brett Adams and Gary Verberne on guitars, Mike Russell on trumpet and Holidaymakers’ maestro Barbara Griffin on keys, as well as The Band of Gold.
