CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC SONGS TO HIT THE AIRWAVES – APRIL SUN IN CUBA RACKS UP FOUR DECADES OF MEMORIES
DRAGON ANNOUNCE 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 two special one night only performances for Melbourne and Sydney to party in style.
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. It is a favourite for audiences at every Dragon show, and the chorus of voices joining in always ensures that performing the track even four decades after its release is a special moment for the band.
“It’s timeless,” says Todd. “April Sun in Cuba wasn’t anchored in the 70s, it is somehow laconic, Australian but looking out. The song has a life of its own and has moved out in the public domain, everyone knows it and can sing along. Its anthemic, its loose, it’s in the groove.”
