Event Details

Anthonie Tonnon’s heralded music tour of our great passenger railways, public transport routes and community venues returns to Tāmaki Makaurau, for a journey by tram in Western Springs.

Mixing song, narrative, personal memoir, historical research, and a poetic but tangible public transport journey, Rail Land is songwriter and performer Anthonie Tonnon’s latest theatrical show, after his much-loved A Synthesized Universe (AAF2019) concert for planetariums.

Following a journey on a real working tram, once used in our cities, you’ll join Tonnon at the original Waitakere Station at MOTAT for a show woven with synthesizer soundscapes and storytelling.

Important Ticketing Information:
Trams depart M2 (200 Meola Rd, Pt Chevalier) at 7.00pm and 7.30pm and both time options are available for purchase. Trams will transport you to M1 in time for the concert, which starts at 8.00pm every evening. The MOTAT Café at M1 will be open from 7.00pm for audience members to grab refreshments before the concert.
