After 22 years at the helm of New Zealand's most loved rock band, Shihad frontman Jon Toogood has built up a treasure trove of musical connections. With a vast collection of musical ideas and a bit of downtime, Jon began work on a project which has now become The Adults (released 2011) - a celebration of his work with some of New Zealand's brightest talents and an iconic Kiwi album in-the-making.
On June 1st 2012, The Adults joined forces with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra at the CBS Canterbury Arena, for a one-night only concert performing their entire album, including their hits 'Nothing to Lose', 'One Million Ways' and 'A Part of Me'. Each track was performed as new ensemble pieces, beautifully arranged by Hamish Oliver, Claire Cowan, Steve Bremner & Stephen Small and accompanied by a 48 piece orchestra under the guidance of internationally renowned conductor, Hamish McKeich.
This 2-CD package includes the original Adults album as well as an additional bonus disc of 10 tracks recorded Live with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra (CSO) and mixed by Radio New Zealand producer, Andre Upston.
