New Zealand Herald - Jackson Browne Concerts Returns
I love playing Auckland," says Browne.
No-one can accuse Jackson Browne (67) of a boring life - as well as penning some of the most significant songs of the singer-songwriter era - Late for The Sky, Fountain of Sorrow, Too Many Angels - Browne has been a leading voice for political and environmental change, winning the John Steinbeck Award in 2002, and playing countless anti-nuclear (Browne performed here in the '86 as part of a Rainbow Warrior fund-raiser) social issues, and art education benefits.
At the Civic Browne will be playing with his six-piece band - including in-demand guitarist Greg Leisz - who recently contributed some stunning work to Lucinda Williams' recent albums.
"I love playing Auckland," says Browne.
"Actually I love Auckland even when I'm not playing there! And I love this band. I think it's my best band and to be down in this part of the world and to get to play is a real thrill for all of us."
Jackson Browne performs with his band on April 3 at The Civic Theatre. For complete tour and ticketing details, visit: www.livenation.co.nz.
