For the third year in a row Synthony has exceeded our expectations. For those living under a rock; Synthony is a unique event where a full orchestra, backed by DJ, perform some of the top dance tracks of all time.The anticipation for a night of nostalgic throwbacks was matched with equally impressive program of lighting and lasers. The mind-blowing visuals gave this year's tracks an extra cool colour explosion.
The musicians of the Auckland Symphony Orchestra looked like they were having the time of their lives, belting out the tunes conducted by Peter Thomas. George FM’s General Lee held court behind the decks, while the likes of Kings, Helen Corry, Jenny B, and Cherie Mathieson stepped out for epic guest vocal sets.
This year's tracks included many Swedish heavyweights with the inclusion of The Swedish House Mafia, Avicii (RIP), and Eric Prydz.
The old-school favourites like 'Tracey In My Room' and 'Lola's Theme' reminded us of fond nights and days past, and there were a couple of newer bangers in there for good mix - like when Fisher's 'Losing It' did, in fact, make the crowd properly lose it.It's so amazing to see how the show has matured from its roots as a one-off gig at the Auckland Town Hall back in 2017. This year, they've played not only two sold-out shows in Auckland but also played Brisbane and Christchurch, and there are still two shows to go - Hamilton is on the 12th October at Claudelands Arena, and the finale will be at Wellington's TSB Arena on the 25th October.
Everyone we know who has been this year says it's one of the best nights out they've ever had, and we 100 percent agree.
You'd be crazy to miss out on it!
