The paint has dried and tomorrow the doors will open to the newest queer establishment in Auckland – come be part of Legend.
Yes, you know the space on K’ Road in one of it’s many incarnations, especially if you’ve got a pair of dancing shoes as it’s hosted many a sweaty, thumping event as Club 420. Now called Legend, the space has gotten a major dressing up and is ready for prime time.
When you walk up to the first level the same flowing space that looks out over the twinkling lights of the Auckland skyline will great you, but the fresh paint will be joined by a bold new sound system and a battery of new moving lights around the dance/performance area. The stage has also been redone and the DJ box rebuilt, all to enhance the ‘legend’ary shows that are to grace the stage.
On his maiden nights, three maidens of the stage have an incredible production in store. Miss Tess Tickle, Kita Mean and Anita Wigl’it will wow the packed house with massive shows at approximately 10:30 and then a fresh performance midnight. Two doses of major diva action! Of course don’t forget that the ultimate Sydney soul diva Shauna Jensen will bring her legendary presence and voice to the stage on Saturday 10 August – a show not to be missed!
When the stage isn’t bursting with action on opening night, the tunes will be pouring from the decks. First up is DJ James Leuii (pictured), followed later in the night by DJ Marjorie’s selection of guest DJs. In fact James will be providing the tunes each Friday while Marjorie will line up a series of gifted DJs to keep you moving every Saturday night, changing over very two hours – tons of unique tunes and talents on tap for all to enjoy.
While soaking up the stellar entertainment on opening night there will be five dollar drink special all evening – vodka drinks, select beers and even shots. The New Zealand AIDS Foundation will also be in the house giving away gift bags and of course express will be catching all the action, so with all this jazz up for grabs, make sure to get in early when the doors open at 10pm. The joint’s gonna be jumpin’ and we can’t wait to see what the freshest club on the strip has in story for our community.
