The Secret Life of Gig Etiquette
The tall guy at the front, the girl dancing with the overflowing beer, the dude bro who doesn't understand the word 'no' – the rules governing behaviour at gigs are likely to go unnoticed until they are broken. Melody Thomas speaks with door people, security guards, musicians and gig lovers about the codes of conduct for a happy gig-going experience.
On first appraisal, Scottish duo The Proclaimers have leveraged their career on little more than two hit records. But their success is actually based on a serious commitment to playing live, and a well above average strike rate placing music into films and TV. Before their next New Zealand appearances, Trevor Reekie talks to The Proclaimers's Charlie Reid about how he and his brother Craig became a success on their own terms.
