Exponents frontman Jordan Luck
Exponents are back
A quintessential Kiwi
rock band has included
Whangarei in its 30-year
anniversary concert tour.
The Exponents have
collected a number of
awards over the past 30
years. Their major hits,
including Why Does Love
Do This To Me, Who
Loves Who The Most,
Victoria, I ll Say Goodbye
(Even Though I m Blue)
and Whatever Happened
To Tracey are part of the
fabric of life for
generations of Kiwis.
Singer Jordan Luck
can t wait to get on the
road and visit favourite
haunts with the band.
A 30th anniversary
tour? I never saw that
coming. From happy
adversity to sublime cel-
ebration, I m just pleased
we re alive. We have
always been in touch.
Me, David and Brian
just celebrated our 50th
birthdays together so
being 30 years old seems
like being a pup. The
songs however seem like
they were written today
or at least in the last
week. That is the way I
imagine we will play
The Exponents 30
Year Anniversary Con-
cert Tour will see the
band perform here on
April 10 at Forum North.
