BIC RUNGA | CHRISTCHURCH
Isaac Theatre Royal, Christchurch
20 October 2017 (20:00)
Bic Runga’s captivating voice and songs have become part of the musical fabric of New Zealand. A New Zealand icon, this run of concerts celebrates her music and her contribution to New Zealand music. Bic’s first album, Drive, was a 7x Platinum seller, to be followed by the four more studio albums: Beautiful Collision (10x Platinum), Birds (3x Platinum), Belle and Close Your Eyes. Bic has received almost every musical honour in New Zealand. She was recently nominated for yet another Silver Scrolls award, one of five female nominees.
Always stylish, Bic is the queen of cool, her fans transcending generations, admired by those who have watched her grow up as well as those who have grown up watching her. Bic’s success has paved the way for other Kiwi female musicians. Nadia Reid has described Bic’s voice as “pure, clear, wise, and melancholic.”
Bic will enchant with a special performance of the entire Drive album, her first multiplatinum release. Through her second set, Bic will continue to fill the venue with hits from her many other releases, with accompaniment from special guests. She is an icon to be cherished.
