Topp Twins 40th Anniversary Tribute Concert

Experience a never-to-be-repeated night of Aotearoa NZ’s entertainment history.

On November 7, 2022, at The Civic in Auckland, a glittering line-up of NZ’s top musicians and comedians will pay tribute to Dames Lynda and Jools Topp in a special variety show to celebrate the extraordinary contribution these Kiwi showbiz icons have made to Aotearoa New Zealand over 40 years.

Guest artists, including Tami Neilson, Anika Moa, Ria Hall, Dame Hinewehi Mohi, Troy Kingi, Jackie Clarke, Annie Crummer and Don McGlashan will perform Topp Twins songs with a twist, while some of NZ’s funniest comedians, as well as special guests, will pay homage to the godmothers of the local comedy scene. Legendary Kiwi musical comedy duo, The Front Lawn (Don McGlashan and Harry Sinclair) are re-forming for this special night. The concert will be hosted by Karen O’Leary, Dame Lynda’s on-screen daughter in Wellington Paranormal.

The Dames themselves will also appear on stage – their first public performance since Lynda’s cancer diagnosis and Covid lockdowns halted their plans for a national tour in 2022 to celebrate their 40th anniversary as performers – unparalleled by any other Kiwi artist.

TOPP CLASS promises to be an extraordinary event, with acclaimed event directors, Mike Mizerahi and Marie Adams, and old friends of the Topp Twins, helping put the “show” back into show-business, while acclaimed singer-songwriter and music director Don McGlashan is working closely with artists to deliver a top-class musical experience.

This super-special one-off concert will be filmed on the night for Sky TV, however nothing will match the experience of being there in the grand ol’ dame of Auckland theatres, The Civic Theatre, to pay tribute to the grand dames of NZ entertainment. Net proceeds from the concert will help pay for the twins’ ongoing treatment and living costs.

Tickets can be purchased here.
