“Always different, always the same”, said John Peel. He was talking, of course, about The Fall. The Mighty Fall. And so many people have trotted out that line, appropriated it, repeated it, ever since. And it still fits. And always will. And now The Fall is playing two shows in New Zealand.
Solid Entertainment has just announced the gigs – Auckland’s Powerstation on Saturday, October 17 and Wellington’s Bodega, Sunday, October 18 (tickets on sale from Thursday, August 5, 9a via Ticketmaster.
The Fall last played Auckland in 2010 – but it’s been some 30 years since they were on a stage in Wellington.
Always Different, Always The Same.
The Fall is Mark E. Smith and, hey, look out for yer granny on bongos – but the current line-up also includes Peter Greenway (guitar), Elena Poulou (keys, vocals), David Spurr (bass) and Keiron Melling (drums).
