DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND DRAGON ANNOUNCE ANOTHER TWO SPECIAL SHOW DATES TO CELEBRATE THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE CLASSIC HIT APRIL SUN IN CUBA.
When it comes to iconic songs, there are few as anthemic and recognisable as April Sun in Cuba. A chart-topper, it peaked at #2 in 1977 and stayed on the charts for a massive 22 weeks, acting as the first monster hit for legendary band Dragon and endearing them to Australian audiences.
To celebrate the song’s auspicious anniversary, the band have announced an extra two special night's to party in style. “A song that is part of the soundtrack of everyone’s life needs a birthday party on turning 40,” says bassist Todd Hunter. “As everyone knows, life begins at 40, so who knows what is in store for April Sun in Cuba.
We had no idea when we recorded the song that it was a hit, or that we would be celebrating its longevity 40 years later! These shows are a celebration of a song that will live on long after we are gone.” Since the track first smashed onto the airwaves, the public’s affection for the party anthem hasn’t wavered. Whether it is listening to it with a feeling of nostalgia or a new generation discovering the song for the first time, there is something about April Sun in Cuba that resonates with music lovers.
