Event: Atomic, Women of Rock – Nov 2023

New Zealand’s finest artists Gin Wigmore, Julia Deans, Dianne Swann, Gussie Larkinand Jazmine Mary today announce a three-concert tour to celebrate pioneering women of rock including Blondie, Eurythmics, Pretenders, Patti Smith, Jefferson Airplane, Joan Jett & more.

ATOMIC! harnesses the energy of an all-femme line-up of musicians to perform a heaving catalogue of hits fronted by women who kicked down doors and rewrote rock’s rules of engagement.

Expect a monster hit list including Heart of Glass, Here Comes the Rain Again, Brass In Pocket, Because the Night, White Rabbit, I Love Rock ‘N Roll and many more in this amazing night of rock in Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington this November.

Pre-sales for this extraordinary rock concert start today. All remaining seats go on sale this Thursday at 9am via Ticketek and Ticketmaster. 

Punk poet Patti Smith. Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick. Denim rocker Joan Jett. Relentless pop hitmakers Debbie Harry of Blondie and Annie Lennox of Eurythmics. These and other icons arrived on their own terms, with rebellion hardwired to their bones to ramraid the boys’ club of the 60s, ‘70s and ‘80s and take no prisoners. As the Pretenders’ Chrissie said, “I didn’t have any role models that were women. My role models were musicians.”

Don’t miss these modern legends of the escalating femme insurrection paying it back to some of the greatest performers of our times: a hitlist rooted in the glories of the past recalled and refreshed for future generations. As Debbie Harry said way back in the day, “the only place left for rock to go is toward more girl stars. There’s nothing left for men to do.”
